The 5 Real Reason's why WWE "PG" sucks.

1 The Brand Extension
Half the talent—half the interest.

The brand extension to some may have meant opening doors for younger talent to gain exposure.

But to many, it meant splitting up half the guys who we enjoyed watching.

It also meant contender pools for Championships became much smaller. Meaning programs became repetitive, causing titles to lose value.

2 Complacency
A feeling of contentment or self-satisfaction, especially when coupled with an unawareness of danger, trouble, or controversy.

The feeling of contentment in winning the Monday Night Wars, and self-satisfaction in building and expanding the global WWE image meant by the year 2003—the WWE's programming began to enter a decline.

3 Social values
n the late 1990's professional wrestling was part of a cutting edge counter culture. It was part of a growing generation of absurd and often offensive television and media programming—Jerry Springer, Howard Stern, South Park, etc.

At the same time, music saw a radical transformation. Often labeled dangerous—gangster rap and hip hop became mainstream. Rock and Roll became Nu (sic) again with bands like Korn, Limp Bizkit & Slipknot.

By the year 2003—WWE's attempts at toilet humor, sexuality and offensive & controversial themes were vastly behind the rest of mainstream media. Dated in every sense and even then often restricted by it's Guidance Rating, network censorship and the FCC.

4 Mixed Martial Arts
In part continuing on from changing social values. Ultimate fighting proved to be the next evolution in Sports Entertainment.

In the early to mid-1990's, professional wrestling experienced a real slump—WCW wasn't any where near being the powerhouse it would become. The NWA were merely surviving. While ECW was barely on the map, in regards of influence over mainstream wrestling.

Things didn't look good for the then, World Wrestling Federation. As it's product then, made today's "PG" era look almost M-Rated.

5 The Internet.
Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away..

Wrestling fans were vastly ignorant to the world of professional wrestling. Sure you could read dirt sheets & magazines and even go online to discuss your favorite topics.

Even as close as ten years ago the internet wasn't completely full of leaks and planted information. A story on a surprise debut and/or angle details weren't as readily accessible as they are today.

However, this isn't the problem.

Today, its the community that has spawned around this information that hinders professional wrestling.

The Brand Extension existed before the WWE went PG.

Re: The 5 Real Reason's why WWE "PG" sucks.

The problem with PG is in the extreme they've taken it to. In of itself, the PG Rating is actually a good thing & something I can respect. However, when you start interrupting matches to cover up blood, having old matches in black & white to cover up blood(which I think they stopped), and having really stupid & brain dead comedy segments just to make the kiddies happy, then you're going too far.

I make these kind of observations all the time, but there are alot of movies that are PG that are still awesome movies. My favorite movies of all time are Rocky & the original Star Wars Trilogy. Both are PG, and I wouldn't change them one bit. Being PG doesn't effect the story for either of those movies. I think both Rocky & Star Wars are movies that wrestling could/should draw inspiration from in terms of having story structure, and in Rocky's case, incorporating strong characters & emotions into a sports driven story.

PG is no excuse for either A) Dumbing down the product, which WWE has done or B) Terrible writing, which has been a problem in the WWE for a long time now.

#1 reason why wwe pg sucks

the fans make it suck with the constant complaining and their stubbornness to refuse to realize that when it was 1998-2001 we were little kids and yucking everything up like it's gold. 10 years from now the kids of today will be crying while the new generation will be loving it.

oh and by that time john cena will be loved and they'll be threads like '(enter new face of wwe) vs john cena at wrestlemania should happen!!!111'

Hawkins, Barreta, and Ryder can SAVE the WWE

These reasons are some non sequiturs. Without a doubt.
