I was just thinking, even though the Nexus are suppose to be really dangerous now. I keeping picturing if WWE was rated PG-13 currently. The Nexus would be way more dangerous if wrestling went back PG-13 or TV-14 and Bryan Danielson probably wouldn't have gotten released as well.

Like can you imagine, the Nexus will get to have so much more to do. Like making people bleed and Bryan choking people out with ties. :lmao

Your thoughts?

Why not say Nexus could've been even more dangerous is WWE was rated 18+ and they were allowed to use stun guns and tasers? :lmao

They're doing perfectly well as they are, the PG rating just forces WWE to be more creative in the way they do these beatdowns which is a good thing imo

Yeah they'd be more violent but I don't see how much more violent they could get. They're doing fine as it is. The only real bonus would be blood. Oh yeah and Bryan not being released.

Yeah I know they are doing great, but watching past NXT episodes of Bryan D made me wish he was a part of this Lol and if it was PG-13 or TV-14. He could have been a part of this.

Brilliant point. I've been thinking this over the last year. The PG rating has definitely encouraged WWE into better storytelling during gimmick matches as well. Like Orton and Cena's I Quit match. Now, when someone gets 'violent' it actually means something, as opposed to TNA pulling all kinds of shit every week on Impact.

Example is The Rock and Stone Cold...they couldn't do as great as they did in the Attitude Era if it was PG. I think even The Rock said if he returns he wants to be himself and all of that.

I know the angle is great but I still think it could have been greater is all I'm saying.

All you've pointed out really is that if it was PG-13 there could be blood, I don't see how that would make them more dangerous. If they can beat up an old man, and throw him into a car before subsequently crashing that car... do they really need to look any more threatening?

I don't think Nexus would really work that well in a TV14 show. Why? The shocking part about Nexus is they seem to break the PG mold. To be shocking and as successful as they have been in a TV14 setting would mean they'd have to go TV-MA. I'm talking beating the shit out of Cena, taking him to the parking lot and telling him to bite the curb level violence.

Plus if it was a TV14 environment than Cena could also be more violet which would lead to, and I'm just guessing here, a Stone Cold style ass whooping on all 7 Nexus guys by Cena alone. That would not make for good TV.

We all know the nexus along with every other aspect of current wrestling would be better if it was still the old attitude era but its not, so we all just have to make do with the PG era until/if they ever decide to change it.

i can play this game.

the Nexus would be more dangerous if they had bombs strapped to their fronts, samurai swords implanted in their shoulders, and the WWE just chopped off their dicks and replaced them with chainsaws.

DANGEROUS.

Why stop there? Why not have the NXT guys go postal and lynch John Cena, mob style.

I mean, suffocate him with his own orange t-shirt and asphyxiate him with his own plastic chains! YES! YES! Then they could set the entire arena on fire! FIRE! FIRE! Yeah! Yeah! BURN!

Well, that was neat.

Anyway, then they could truly be wild and young instead of simply mild and inexperienced.

Still dont get this PG bullshit anyway
The attitude era was aimed at kids anyway, I dont know 1 adult that used to watch it but all my mates used to watch it from being 7-12 Then they would grow out of it! So they grew out of the attitude era at 13, because they said they are too old for it :lmao
If American mums wont let their kid watch a show where someone bleeds a bit or gets his with a chair then its fucked up! heck i watched porn when i was like 6 i swear :D

How exactly? The attitude era had some great feuds and storylines, just like the PG era. The attitude era had some incredibly shitty moments, just like the PG era. That's pro wrestling/sports entertainment, a bunch of shitty moments with some great stuff mixed in.
