WWE announced last week that they are set to launch an NXT kids show that will spark the interest of many of WWE's younger fans, but will that have any effect on WWE's main shows?
Rightfully, WWE's PG era has been full of debates about whether or not the company could ever go back to the way it once was during the famous Attitude Era, but WWE never wanted to risk alienating their young audience.
TIME FOR THE PG ERA TO END?
With the rumours of blading and finings for bleeding going around all the time, it makes sense for WWE to finally allow their superstars to be as brutal in their matches as they once were.

The NODQ and Ladder Matches are not as high octane as they were a decade ago and since the PG banner was stamped on WWE, their main demographic has been overtaken by young children.
With NXT now making a show that will be aimed at just children, does that mean that they may make a show aimed at just adults? One where superstars can finally be unleashed, an ECW for the modern era perhaps (Not like the one of 2006)?
This is highly unlikely, but it could bring back some of the Attitude Era fans who decided to leave when all of WWE's matches were watered down for the younger viewers.
PROBLEMS WITH THIS THEORY?
The main problem here is health and safety, we are in an era where WWE have had to ban Seth Rollins' Curb Stomp because they are scared about any head injury claims.
The same could be said for chair shots and the brutality that was made accustom by WWE back in the 90s. The issue right now is that WWE have already been sued so many times by the superstars of the previous generation because of the lasting effects on their body long after the end of their careers.
WWE will not want to risk that with the new generation, they would be happy to replay these matches on the WWE network and still make money from them, rather than opening themselves up to more lawsuits due to injury and negligence on their behalf.
Whilst it would be great to see WWE return to the company it once was when there were matches and rivalries that defined the entire era, it seems WWE are in no position to take their PG rating away right now and it is unknown if they ever will be.
