Huge Update On WWE Programming Changing To TV-14￼
Huge Update On WWE Programming Changing To TV-14 : It appears that WWE will keep its “Attitude” under control. While there were initial conversations about switching WWE programming from TV-PG to TV-14, PWInsider reports that all intentions for maturing the content of WWE have been abandoned.
When it was reported that “WWE Raw” might become edgier as early as July 18th, with no other rumoured changes to “WWE NXT” or “WWE SmackDown,” speculation on this subject erupted in full swing back in July. That report, however, was quickly refuted, though there were still rumours that the change might be under consideration. According to the PWInsider report, WWE programming will continue to air on TV-14 for the foreseeable future as it has since 2008.
On June 22, 2008, WWE started its PG era, removing violence, blood, and foul language from its performances. The transition took place at the same time that Linda McMahon started making unsuccessful attempts at a political career. Although McMahon’s two Senate attempts in 2010 and 2012 were decisively lost by Senators Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, respectively, McMahon was eventually chosen by the 45th President and WWE Hall of Famer Donald Trump to lead the Small Business Administration.
Under the current direction of Paul Levesque, Stephanie McMahon, and Nick Khan, WWE has undergone a lot of adjustments to its programming and roster, but an edgier product will not be one of them. Levesque has been in charge of Talent Relations and the company’s creative direction, while McMahon and Khan have shared the role of CEO at the business. After previous CEO and chairman Vince McMahon resigned after many financial probes and a string of hush money payments to former female workers, all three took up his responsibilities.
