And why are people saying its not PG that is causing these ratings, this is WRESTLING. Wrestling is fighting its not a friendly kids show. Times have changed this isnt the 80s and early 90s when that worked. The world has changed and the world of TV is changing to more edgy material.
You see stuff like UFC where the buildup and the fighting is real and people love to watch it, its not dedicated to 3rd graders. Most of the audience is dead during the show because half the audience is parents!
WWE's got 99 problems, being PG isn't one of them
back in 1997 and 1998, during the peak of the attitude era and their most controversial period with the media, the first hour of RAW was PG and it was called "Monday Night RAW" , the second hour was TV-MA and it was called "The Warzone" , both together were called "RAW is WAR"
the reason the product is this shitty and bland is because they are too pussy to make an enjoyable wrestling show for everyone, the fact is they are too busy with looking good in the media and the mainstream, they forget to improve the quality of the show
Vince is the media's bitch, here's an example, now I understand and applaud supporting the fight against breast cancer
, but can I just ask, what difference would it make to change the colors of the sets to pink, would cancer magically disappear by having John Cena wear pink? would people be cured just because the rope is pink ?
my issue isn't with the pink ropes or the sets, it's the fact that Vince would bend over just to look noble in the public's eye, and the sad thing is he's trying too hard , not just the breast cancer, but with the whole package, GLAAD, the B A STAR , etc.. I mean a show about people punching each other for 3 hours is gonna protest against bullying ? come on now
Vince is too scared to pull something edgy because he's afraid it would give him bad buzz, when the fact that that's not true, you could be edgy AND get some positive buzz, look at last year's WWE with CM Punk after the infamous shoot promo, it got a lot of people talking and pay attention to the show and it was cutting edge
you could be edgy without having a guy rape a dead corpse at a funeral home or bleeding for no reason whatsoever other than the fuck of it, as a fan I don't need pointless blood, just give me shit like CM Punk's rise last year for example , that's all i'm asking , is it too much ?
