Did The Rock Bring "Ass" Back?

Ever since The Rock's first promo, The Miz, Cena, Jerry Lawler, everyone's saying ass now. Nice to see WWE has let more light profanities in.

Although JR calling Cole a rat bastard was pretty edgey but great at the same time. :)

I was wondering the same thing. I think its nice to hear a little profanity every now and again. It alot better than hearing Im gunna beat your little booty.

And thing great thing about this is that it's PG. Rock is proving my pint that most things someone like him and Austin said 10 years ago are still allowed on PG, so people shouldn't be like PG is restricting what WWE does cause it really doesn't.

Yes, he did, and I don't have a problem with it. Any kid that's allowed to watch WWE hears worse language on TV every day. I mean, Raw doesn't end until around 11:15 at night. Do you have any idea what kind of language a kid watching could hear at that time if he just changed the channel?

Oh yeah. Good that WWE atleast allowed that. And one more thing that I noticed that when Austin returned, he had raised his middle finger when he stood on the turnbuckle. And the last time, in 2010, when he had come as a Raw guest host, he had just raised his arms and not the middle finger. Just like written in somebody's signature :"WWE isnt in the PG era, its in the rebuilding era" ;)
Yeah I noticed that but did you also notice only on the first turn buckle he went to?

The rest of the time, the cameras didn't show above his head so you couldn't see his fingers.

Well it would hardly be fair for them to impose the double standard of Rock being allowed to say it and everybody else isn't. Besides, WWE always tend to push the PG barrier during the RTWM. Think back to Orton/HHH in 09. Some folks just blow the PG thing way out of proportion imo. If Rock is calling people asses then I'm glad others are allowed to respond in kind.

I dont know why WWE got into the trend that being edgy will take away ratings and merch sales. Shows like Family Guy and South Park are huge hits and look at the content of those shows.

I'm not saying WWE has to have swearing all the time, extreme violence and half-nudity with the Divas, but I'm glad to see them finally realizing that they dont have to put on a Disney level show to bring in viewers.

Or, as Cena has said several times,"I'm gonna turn your face into mush!" Really?

Imagine, "ECW(original) turns PG in order to bring YOUR family a better, more child friendly experience."

I would have lol'ed.
