Default PG Rating isn't the problem

I hear alot of people saying that the reason WWE sucks now is because of the PG rating. but its not, the problem is the storylines,Wrong people being jobbers and wrong people being top carders, the predictability etc. But from what we seen from this weeks raw things are starting to improve so just be Quite and hope they keep it up like this weeks raw.

PG rating is far from the problem. People need to realize that some of most watched shows on TV are PG. But on this site, people act like PG means some Disney cartoon stuff.

There is a deeper problem...the main source is McMahon, writing team, and whoever else is in charge.

They have this extreme PG mindset in which they want to make the product very very PG. We can still have a great PG product in the PG era if they would keep creating quality storylines, characters, and proper booking. It doesn't need to return to the Attitude Era. Just ask the Ruthless Agression era. Just look at the product right before it became PG.

Cena, Batista, and Orton were new talent and got pushed to the top. And next thing we know, they are veterans. There were also other new great stars like Bobby Lashley and CM Punk. WWE just has to sustain the quality that they had in that era but subtract some of the bad stuff for the little kids.

Here are some examples of great PG era feuds: Remember in 2009 when Triple H invaded Randy Orton's house and they brawled? That was intense. Remember in 2010 when Jack Swagger dragged Rey Mysterio's broken leg backstage into the arena? Intense. This just goes to show that WWE doesn't need to make things too PG.

The other problem...is the overuse of Cena. It's time to give him the Jericho treatment and place him in smaller storylines. Put other new guys at the top like they did with Cena, Batista, and Orton back in the day. Just make sure the new guys aren't jokes. They have to be the real deal.

Bewbs and swears are the answer clearly. Not quality storytelling and interesting characters.

There's a difference between child-friendly and childish.

To go all nerdy on you, Star Wars Episodes 5 and 6 were both PG

One was compelling and quite dark at times, the other was full of annoying, fluffy bears defeating armies.

WWE could appeal to all demographics under the current rating but they're happy to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

Predictability, poor writing and over-reliance and over-exposure of John Cena have been problems for me. Their is no reason why WWE can't produce a good product within a PG rating. It's all down to the booking and writing. The 80's/early 90's were awesome and they were PG.
