I remember in those brutal matches where they would pull out a bad of thumb tacks from under the ring and slam the opponent on them. Did they take em out due to the pg era ?

Maybe because it was harm to the wrestler's body? Wrestlers are humans too I guess they did it for their safety.

Probably because thumbtacks aren't that hard to find in an average household. Kids see wrestler able to take them to the face and back andn they wanna try it with thier friends. As a kid, I pretended wrestle too, I'm just glad I always listened to the "Don't Try This At Home" message enough to avoid the real dangerous stuff.

According to their PG rating, they can not show blood (on purpose). Thumbtacks always caused blood.
