Top WWE talent believed to have fewer PG restrictions as the company is “trying to create an Attitude Era vibe”

Last month, it was reported by that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s social media promos with profanity rubbed some WWE talent the wrong way because they felt there was a double standard.

It appears that due to Rock’s promos, top talent in WWE now have fewer PG restrictions. Dave Meltzer of noted the following in regards to the matter…

“We were told that everything is up in the air as far as going forward as there is a recognition that going farther in this direction will draw a younger audience, as it did 25 years ago, but they also want to not be in a position where sponsors are squeamish so it’s a balancing act.”

“We haven’t seen any examples with underneath talent but we’ve seen far racier language among the top talent and they are trying to create an Attitude Era vibe.”

Last week, Paul “Triple H” Levesque explained his stance on profanity and blood usage

“It’s not a shift of philosophy. It’s just when it’s needed, pull the trigger. But the discipline is only pulling the trigger when it really means something and when it’s shocking, not when it’s just, we should do this. ‘Yeah, I should just use a bunch of profanity today.’ It doesn’t matter. You don’t need it. It’s a crutch, to be honest. All that stuff is a crutch.”
