They dont. Swearing in society is proven to show anger or super aggression or pissed off. Spike TV lets them swear so they use it in there promo's. Lets be honest TNA is doing nothing Cutting Edge, but the demographic of Spike TV is 18-35 males thus swearing is only shown as aggression or anger.

Going too far? No. Making themselves look ridiculous? Yeah, kinda. I've noticed over the past few weeks that the amount of swearing has increased. I don't mind swearing - who does these days? - but I do find it disappointing that these performers apparently believe they can't achieve the same results without it. I think the sheer amount of it is, at this point, a little juvenile.

Profanity is best used to provide shock value, as ridiculous as that sounds in this day and age. When the Rock said "ass" for the first time on WWE TV in quite some time, it had more impact than a big chunk of the TNA roster using the word "fuck" on a weekly basis. There's no way it should be that way. TNA need to tone it down for it to mean something. If they don't, what's the point?

I completely agree with this, TNA overuse (or did when I was still watching) violence and profanity making it meaningless. However, WWE make mistakes of their own, the way they write promos demands a certain amount of profanity which they're unable to deliver; what both companies should do is change the style of writing to make it un-necassary. Watch this video to see waht I mean:


Jake doesn't use any profanity in this segment, his language is entirely clean and would technically be allowable in today's WWE; what would stop it from being used is that subject matter. If Jake had sworn it would actually have had less impact in my opinion, what makes it work is the malice in his eyes and his words.
