Why doesn't most of the people on here know that wrestling started out as a PG product?

The attitude era was very short lived and coincided with the advent of widespread internet usage so IWC marks think that was how wrestling is supposed to be. NEWSFLASH:















Wrestling is first and foremost a BUSINESS. Vince doesn't care about the 10% of his audience (theIWC) who pines for the attitude era with it's blood, booze, sex, drugs, and vulgar language mostly because:















1. They RARELY buy anything (PPV's, tickets, merchandise)















2. They watch his shows through illegally pirated streams or torrents, further cutting into his revenue]















3. They are getting older















Most SUCCESSFUL businessed target younger audiences who will grow with them. The simple truth is that the fans who watched wrestling in the attitude era GREW UP, got jobs, got married, and had kids - leaving little time for wrestling.

Go back and look at old footage and see who the audience was back then.....I'm talking about black white television days when the fans were wearing suits and such. It was old grannys and business men wearing fedoras who believe it was a sport.































PRO WRESTLING WAS ALWAYS A family friendly PRODUCT. 4 years of crash tv of pure garbage did more harm than good.

I agree, Vince realizes that most of his fans that grew up have jobs, got married and they have kids so he took a new root and that got him new fans and more $.
