PG wasn't the problem, it was how they ran their program. They didn't wasnt to disappoint the kids so the faces won every match and they buried their heels. Only way heels can win is either cheating or outside interference/distractions. Heels are suppose a legitament threat and WWE has forgotten that that why it when down hill. Not to mention focusing everything around Cena and Orton and not building new stars.
whoa! What a profile pic

But owait, PG sucks.
On restricting moves, it's good for the wrestlers health, as some of the moves are /horrible/ on some body parts. West Coast Pop(I believe that's the one) and Pepsi Plunge = Murder on the knees.
Dude this was more of a thread to give people a chance to watch this video, I don't really see how it's immature to 1. Remember a time where I really enjoyed wrestling, 2. Like this video, I never said anything about needing blood divas weapons etc to enjoy wrestling, if you want to presume that's what I meant then fine but please do not tell me to grow up.

They also say they are in a youth movement but a youth movement won't work when you build the youth up just to be buried back down to midcard status by Orton or Cena. & its not just them losing but how they lose to these guys & how unbalanced the fueds are when they face these two that completely destroys any hype & credibility that they've built with the young guys like Sheamus, Barrett, DiBiase. It has taken Sheamus forever just to SMELL the main event area on SMACKDOWN & he had to turn FACE to do it! CM Punk is the only heel that has been put over properly in a very long time.

Another Anti PG Post
As I watch old school WWE videos on YouTube, I realized just how much I miss the beautiful past. The time where the WWF pushed the envelope as far as what they could get away with on TV.
With the PG rating taking affect lately, we've had to sit through all the changes. Gone were the blood scenes, extreme action, and the adult-suggested actions. Instead, we see matches stopped due to an open wound, five-second delays on live promos, and a tamer set of matches in the ring.
Let's get back to the mayhem most of us craved on Monday and Friday nights. Let's get back to pushing the envelope to the point where it was going to shred to pieces. Bring back the hardcore matches, weapons, the violence that made wrestling a household name for years. Bring back bra and panties, the women mixing it up in the ring with the men, the adult situations that we laughed at backstage.
It's what needed. Let's face, how much more of the boring monotony can we take? Each week, it's becoming predictable of what will happen on either RAW or SmackDown. The fans are wanting to see more happen, both live and on TV. CM Punk's promo was just the beginning, but it pretty much stopped there. There's no true excitement, no real drama. When you see ratings drop, you know something must be done.
I can only hope these changes come soon for the WWE. Otherwise, it'll be WCW all over again, this time without anyone to buy them out.
Compared to raws ratings now, it kinda speaks for itself to be honest.
PG Isn't the issue
Shitty writing is the issue
we need to go back to having "Bookers" not "Writers" We need people in there who have a deep and abiding love for Wrestling. not people who made a few mini-series or soap operas before and moved on to do "That sports entertainment thing" for cash.
Then, once we have that, we need, as fans, to vote with our money, to buy PPVs worth watching, to buy merchandise of our favorite wrestlers, to pay to go to live shows to see them in action.
In this world Money is the last universal language, and the only one that every business speaks, if you want change, then you have to tell them that in the only way that they understand. With your wallet.
WWE Didn't go PG to piss people off, they didn't do it because Vince is getting old, they didn't do it for Linda's political aspirations, they did it to make money.
Just like they went with the Attitude Era to make money. before the Attitude era they were essentially PG and raking in cash, when WCW started kicking them around the playground they had to become edgier to compete.
If becoming PG13 will make them more money, both in fan revenue and in ad revenue, then they will do that, but until it does they will stay PG, and that's fine because PG doesn't mean that they can't tell a good story.
The truth has been spoken!
