On last week’s call with investors, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon re-emphasized his commitment to maintaining WWE’s PG rating. When asked if AEW would encourage WWE’s creative team to create edgier, more explicit content, McMahon said the following:
“AEW has not changed [WWE’s] content at all because it’s all about our characters, the storylines, and resolutions. We don’t need more edgy content, as you call it. We’re one of the few programs out there that really is PG.”
Shayna Baszler bit Becky Lynch on the neck and then posed with blood dripping out of her mouth on the February 10 episode of Raw. WWE is in the business of working a paying audience; it takes nerve and gall to work the stockholders.
