PG-rated WWE doesn’t give wrestling fans any attitude

Once again I want to thank my friends at Camel Clutch Blog for publishing a piece I wrote about the WWE’s current PG-themed product. Camel Clutch is a great place to find posts about pro wrestling, UFC, and NFL football.

My article, “The sanitized WWE can’t produce another Stone Cold or Rock,” looks at why the stars of the WWE’s “attitude era” in the late 1990s would have a hard time replicating their success under today’s booking regime.

For example, D-Generation X members like Triple H and Shawn Michaels would never get away with crotch chops today — instead, they’d have to give the more politically correct double thumbs up to opponents.

Check out some of my other observations about today’s vanilla-flavored WWE in the full piece.
