I remember during the attitude era they started using 'bad' language a lot more, clearly bought into the idea (fact) that sex sells and practically every match seemed to involve deadly weapons- is all that gone?
For WWE.....yes. It is gone for good and probably will not return until the company is broken up. Not just the cussing and all that but Mr. MacMann thought that the company should be focused on reaching out to the "Family Living Room." While we can debate whether this killed the show or not in terms of popularity is conjecture. The cold hard fact is that it brought in millions of more revenue when parents started to get involved with their kids; not just the Nerds/Geeks/Wrestling Fans. For all the decisions he has made, none of us can debate that Mr. MacMann's decisions wasn't right; the man is RICH!!!
Hooowwweeevvvveeerrr....................Impact Wrestling, headed by Hulk Hogan and his daughter, is in full swing. Most of the Wrestlers cling to the traditional style of fighting. Weapons and tables are common place and wrestlers actually bleed on stage almost ever episode. Additionally they have no problem being, "Manly," and will cuss and fight over the stupidest shit. So if it's traiditonal hardcore Wrestling you want then focus on Impact on TnT. If it's mass media and popular studs you want (or all my fellow Undertaker fans) then watch WWE. Either way you get a show each time.
Though we need for BROCK LESNER. BROCK LLLEESSSNNNEEERRRRR!!!!!!

Not really, it has stalled in my honest opinion. They are going to a sort of "Biker Undertaker" attitude type approach and it is getting very....annoying.

BOOOOOOOOO, those "BOYZ" needed to get washed out bro. Besides, the Dengal Gang is much more interesting with their Bayou "Mystics." :p
