Historical news on Raw

There is a really important change in the WWE house, in fact, the reporter Andrew Zarian has thus launched this news on Twitter: "Starting July 18 WWE Raw will have a TV-14 rating going forward on USA Network. The PG Era is over."

Starting July 18th WWE Raw will have a TV-14 rating moving forward on USA Network. In 2020, Kurt Angle had given an interview on the subject saying, "I think the PG Era is a good thing for wrestling. I understand that we had more creative control over our characters before this era, but deep down this situation also led athletes to stay healthier.

Drug tests, physicists, doctors, and new instructors have become very important and the health of the Superstars has become very important in this system. I believe that the PG Era was necessary and it is important that WWE take care of marketing its product among families and not only among young adults."

It is important to underline that for now there is no news on the other shows that are part of the Stamford company, we only talk about Monday Night Raw, so presumably, this also depends above all on the broadcaster, given that for example, Friday Night SmackDown goes on the air on FOX.

Big news on Raw

WWE's PG rating has meant that the company was backed into a corner in regards to its content. Raw and SmackDown have been somewhat restrained against their nearest competition, All Elite Wrestling. Taking a step back in 2019, we had already dealt with this topic by writing: "The news, if confirmed, would make happy at least a couple of generations of WWE fans, who for over a decade have been burned by the change of policy adopted by a WWE increasingly aimed at a child audience than an adult audience.

But now things would seem very close to changing. The feeling, in fact, is that WWE is progressively considering putting PG Era behind it to return to TV14." This is because PWInsider had said: "They will probably start to extend the boundaries of what has been permissible in recent times, we will see how far they go before someone starts saying that they have gone too far and that they don't like it.

But if they can introduce elements a little bolder and sharper, they certainly will. On the other hand, the edict to become PC they have imposed themselves, and now all this is becoming a reality.
