Just watched the Brodus Clay segment and well...it's embarrassing.

I wonder if he genuinely enjoys doing that.

Pretty sure you know you don't want to watch this. Unless you're under 8 years old, don't waste your time.

"blockbuster premiere match" LOL

I like how Santino comes out with the US title. Now the kiddies will know it's been pre-recorded, oh no.

I am no fan of the PG era but I have no problem with this actually. A Saturday Morning program for kids is a great idea and it brings back memories for me of getting up on Saturday morning and watching Livewire over a bowl of cereal as a kid.

"program for kids", are you saying there is a WWE program NOT geared toward us? HOW DARE WWE DO THAT! lol seriously, I agree with every word. I don't like the PG Era but I actually think this is a good idea. Its something WWE related for the little ones to watch.

I am ashamed to be a wrestling fan right now. Pandering to kids will only hurt them in the long run. Getting branded as kiddie is something that takes for ever to shake if you ever can. See Nintendo they make some hard as balls games but they are branded as kiddie.

I have no problem with pg but this shit right here does not fly on what wrestling stands for.

Though I did like how they had to quick cut the match because it didn't follow the rules of this show.

Armbar!
Arm drag!

Honestly what was wwe thinking, they are putting there show in a dead block with barly any viewers

therefor it will flop

tada.

wwe might be big, but it isn't pokemon or spongebob or phineas and ferb, so they aren't really going to draw much viewers if any at all.

You know this is a good idea for the WWE. It may not work for us older fans but the WWE wants to grow a fanbase for the future, what better way to do that than by creating a Saturday morning show? It's how I got interested in the WWE over 20 years ago.

Re: WWE Saturday Morning Slam

Again, what business sense does it make to pander to about 1/5 of your audience while completely alienating the 4/5? You wanna grow a new generation of fans? You do that by putting on an entertaining wrestling product week after week. Kids are gonna want to watch cool stuff; they play GTA for crying out loud.

It's not aimed at my demographic and I'm fine with that, if I was a kid I'd be all over it. I think Kingston and Slater have been reading Jericho's list of 1004 holds though.
