Re: Dean Ambrose Pre-Debut Discussion Thread
PG doesn't determine whether something is good or not. Booking and creative determines that. I didn't like the attitude era, being a gay woman, i found it uncomfortable in retrospect with sexist and homophobic undertones (and overtones), some of which lingers around to this day. The Golden Era of wrestling was PG but it was good because it was booked well with many likeable and memorable characters.
I say bring back blood on occasions (not every week) and mild swearing but never go back to the AE, its had its time, we need to usher in a new era, one that is unique, modern and cutting edge-something people could consider trendy. it doesn't need to be overtly offensive like AE aimed to be, but risque in a tasteful way-artistic, if you will. Wrestling is an art form after all and it should be treated as such. We need to up the intelligence level otherwise wrestling will always be perceived as idiots entertainment.
