    Why did WWE go PG?

    What was the reasoning for the WWE to go PG to appeal to the kids rather than their sometimes stable adult fanbase who grew up on a PG 13(sometimes R rated Raw).

    Im younger than a lot of the guys on here, but I remember the profanity, the over the edge storylines, the puppies, the blood, and the weapons under the ring.


    What made Vince turn it into a child friendly show?
    A paradox.

    weapons are still there, one of the biggest matches of the night on sunday is TLC, blood will still be there, except now its a real cut not a blade job in eveeeeeeeery match which killed the attraction totally

    WWE didn't go PG, they went BACK again to pg, why, i don't know to be honest, i ain't vince, i suspect though it was to shake things up, wwe had gotten stale, kids are and always will be their main fanbase, its much smarter to market to kids than fickle adults, teens who have so many other interests, wwe are always changing their product, image etc, its the reason why they have lasted this long while awa, nwa, ecw, wcw, wccw and others have fallen by the wayside

    it seems like they stopped "giving away" things like matches with weapons or even title shots on Raw and Smackdown...you only really see blood, weapons and title changes on PPV which is kinda lame cause they're so expensive...i remember when i was younger i paid i think it was $20.00 for PPV's....and the PPV's were worth it then!

    This. In a down economy, you gotta make money the best way you can. And right now, families are a bigger market than the 18-34 year old male demographic that wants more hardcore action. If the ratings and revenue start to go down, maybe a change will be made. But right now, the investment in PG content is working apparently.

    Oh **** I wish I had your cable provider.

    Before I got the "black box of free cable", I was definitely paying more than $20 for a basic PPV like Judgment Day.

    Well, looking at the tv ratings and ppv buys, I wonder how long this PG thing will last to be honest.

    PPV Buys are especially horrible.

    Yeah because the "Attitude era" with beer, gay and penis jokes every five minutes was way funnier.

    Attitide was for male teens who were giggling when they saw Debra's puppies.

    And the wrestling? I remember watching raw with 35 minutes promos from Austin and the Rock.

    It all about individual taste.

    Personally, the best time was 1995 with Owen/Yokozuna and Bulldog vs Shawn and Bret.

    Yeah the attitude era definitely wasn't about highlighting the wrestling itself. It was all about the build ups and promos. I enjoyed it cause I was young back then and the "drama" of wrestling kept me coming back. But I also grew to have an appreciation for good technical wrestling as well.

    raw ratings are solid, mania did roughly 1 million buys and $7m at the live gate (a record for any mma or wrestling in north american history) so its not all bad news
