    If we get the "F" in, will we return to the attitude era?

      I cant watch wrestling any more because it doesnt resemble a wrestling match or a real fight. Choreographed gymnastics is not fun for me. Since the F went it turned into a soft dance off

                    Boomers hated the attitude era.
                    Millennials hated the Pg era
                    Zoomers hate it now.
                    Get what I'm saying?

                      I fucked up actually, Boomers hated the Attitude era,
                      Gen X Hated the ruthless agression era going into the PG era.
                      Millennials hate it now.
                      My point however still stands that amajority of the "it was better in the old days" comments repeat the course because nostalgia. Give it 10 years and zoomers will say the same thing about the sport in 2029 and say "Man I wish it was like 2019 wwe that was the best"

                    Ok let me break it down the WWF name change to WWE was very crucial but people act like the Ruthless Agression wasn’t good that’s not true Ruthless Agression era gave us some memorable moments some moments we would never forget from 02-05 the company was still good 06 is when WWE started to die 07 it was on its death bed but 08 is when WWE/F died to me that’s my humble opinion

                          I just knew the reason for the WWE being freaking PG was due to Chris Benoits brutal demise

                          from Badass moments of DX being themselves in the Ring to having Baron Corbin making fun of Roman Reigns Big Dog Bark!!!! New Day on the other hand is not quite PG 😏 that's more between or PG-13 I guess

                              When WWE got the F out so did I not because I’m an attitude era mark I just realised I was a big boy and big boys don’t watch men in underwear play fighting each other for toy belts because it’s stupid, childish and gay.

                                50/50 booking obviously stems from when people complained about Cena always winning and practically everyone else always losing to him.

                                  Women's wrestling entertainment = wwe they are castrating the males for social commentary

                                    I was like 14 when wwe turned pg in 08 and it was so crazy tho in a few moments it went to legendary to unwatchable.. I stopped a short time cause 09 - 12 was so awful it was a parody! Also wrestling is not for children simple as that. I mean a movie is not real too but it has a age limit

                                        I honestly think today's PG product is much better than WWF's attitude era. I think that the quality of matches are better, women are more respected, and since there are different brands like RAW, Smacdown! and NXT, along with multiple programs like NXT UK, and 205 Live, there is something for everyone, and the WWE universe just seems bigger than it was in 2000.

                                          This stupid channel has always supported the PG rating. They speak for wwe more than they do the culture

                                            WWE :
                                            Skilled & Talented Super Stars
                                            Bad Storyline,bookings & unimpressive matches
                                            But we still love WWE

                                              So it's Benoits fault WWE had to go PG, wow and I thought it was because of Adam Wilburn

Hell, even Simon sucks now too, and he was the last good thing about this channel lmao

                                                                Daniel Bryan headlined WM 30, winning the title after beating HHH, Batista, and Randy Orton in the same night, after only being placed into those matches because of how over he was. Bryan was more over than CM Punk ever was.

                                                                The sentence should read, "Daniel Bryan and, to a lesser extent, CM Punk."

                                                                          I know that in 2006 the Ruthless Agression era but i feel the WWE programme from the 2002-2008 period closer to me than the PG.

The then-WWF was supposed to market itself strictly as the World Wrestling Federation outside the U.S. (no abbreviation), but when it switched to the famous scratch logo, the promotion referred to itself as the WWF all over the world. No wonder the Law Lords laid a smackdown on it!
