They still do that warning before the shows about how it's a post watershed production and not suitable for children. obviously it's PG in the US but what is it that makes 15 over here and PG over there?

Canada is same way too, Raw is still rated 14+(and during attitude era/ruthless aggression era they still censored stuff).

Maybe PG rating has more to do with international tv than anything else, and WWE wanting to be PG so that countries all over would have similar standards since 14+ ratings in diff countries mean much diff things.

This surprises me, given that [the majority of] Europe is pretty much liberal with the cussing and suggestive themes that goes on television. I still don't get the rating, though. Rated 15 would be roughly the UK equivalent of either TV-PG with the DLSV subratings or TV-14, not TV-PG with only one subrating. Anyone from the UK can confirm this?

Oh, and as for the soccer moms joke, IT'S Called FOOTBALL!
