A huge change.

It looks like WWE are finally closing the doors on the PG Era.

The last few months of WWE TV content have seen blood and cursing, and this is likely to continue.

Dave Meltzer is now reporting in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter (subscription required) that recent Rock promos, as well as Paul Heyman’s Hall of Fame speech marked the end of the era:

“It was said to us that the Rock interviews and Heyman promo are considered the official end of the PG era. This isn’t to say that the TV shows will be changing. That is something talked about but no decision has been made, but I’m guessing a decision will be made at the end of the year when Raw goes to Netflix and NXT to CW, based on what those broadcasters want and also what sponsors will be comfortable with…”
“So that will be determined months from now, but the attempts to keep things PG in the big picture which had been a big thing to the point of the memo being sent out about it several weeks back, such as in social media or in non-television shows, is now no longer the case. Another thing about the Heyman speech, which set social media records for a Hall of Fame speech viewing, is that it was also meant as the spiritual closing of the book by WWE on ECW and essentially having it be the Hall of Fame key act.”

Welcome to the Renaissance Era.
