Members of the WWE Universe who began following the industry years ago have certainly seen the difference in the company of today which holds a safer, more child-friendly PG rating.
This rating, though, has meant WWE has become extremely limited in terms of where it can go with its storylines and wrestlers. It is as if there is a big gap between the level of entertainment we saw in the days of the Attitude Era and what we see now.
The best years
Back then everything was more blatant, edgy and in-your-face. There are a lot of moments from this period in professional wrestling which fans remember, which may well not be the case for the current state of WWE in years to come.
This is not to say that the WWE roster now boasts a limited amount of talent. There is a whole host of incredible superstars but those most noteworthy and which WWE relies upon most are the older wrestlers such as John Cena, Brock Lesnar and Randy Orton.
But what the company plans to do when these prominent wrestlers retire or become part-time at least, is unclear.
Other wrestlers such as Bray Wyatt and Seth Rollins should be give to opportunity to emerge further, but a fresh batch of bright young talent making a memorable entrance in WWE wouldn't hurt either.
Impact on matches
The PG rating WWE bares has also had a huge impact on what happens in the ring as well as with regard to storylines.
Gone are the days of chair shots to the head, bleeding from the use of a blade and extremely dangerous yet entertaining spots.
Interesting to note is the maintaining of pay-per-views such as Hell in a Cell as they require a certain amount of danger to live up to their brutal name.
Though the wrestlers are still locked inside the infamous steel and blows such as with steel chairs are still able to be used nowadays, what has occurred in these matches in the past will forever remain in the memory of the WWE Universe.
This in turn means that images of Mick Foley plummeting through the cell roof will forever define this type of match and nothing any wrestler does during Hell in a Cell, not least because of WWE's PG rating, will come close to having the same effect on the WWE Universe.
Consequently, it is clear WWE need to impress its fans fast with some kind of dramatic change or incident to reignite the excitement and entertainment it provided prior to holding a PG rating.
