How much blame can you put on Benoit's action that resulted in the way the WWE puts on shows now?

Default How much blame can you put on Benoit's action that resulted in the way the WWE puts on shows now?

I mean it seems like with all the bad publicity that the WWE received during the first few months following his death spurred this PG era more than anything.They are trying not bring anymore bad press and so the best way they think of is to make the entire show PG and blood free.Think about it during this time we have seen the punting thing Orton was doing go away for along time until Mania.















Right the whole thing resulted in losing sponsors and so to get them back they went PG.Like I said that all to be stems from Benoit's actions.Prior to that they was still sort of edgey















Yes it was pg 13.Shawn just got kicked in the head by Orton that gave him a concusion.Orton was going around attacking everyone from Cena's father at home to doing all sorts of stuff.Lashley was getting the screw job from from Vince which was during the time Mcmahon was bald.So you need to get your facts straight before posting.















You need to look at the storylines behind the matches and not just the the card itself.

No,not really.WWE and Vince claims that they went PG for publicity and rating.If WWE wasnt PG,half of their sponsors and viewers wouldnt even do it.

Yeah I think Benoit's death put the nail in the coffin for the PG era. Vince wants that to be the last time the WWE gets any more bad attention and media.

Judgement Day 2007 (the PPV a month before the Benoit murders)































1 Ric Flair defeated Carlito















2 Bobby Lashley defeated Team McMahon















3 CM Punk defeated Elijah Burke















4 Randy Orton defeated Shawn Michaels















5 The Hardys (Matt and Jeff) (c) defeated Lance Cade and Trevor Murdoch















6 Edge (c) defeated Batista















7 Montel Vontavious Porter defeated Chris Benoit (c)















8 John Cena (c) defeated The Great Khali































Looks pretty PG to me.































Storylines:















1 Flair retirement angle















2 Lashley getting screwed out of the ECW championship















3 Punk rebelling against New Blood leader Elijah Burke















4 Working the Legend Killer angle (ok - you have a point here because he's not the 'Legend Killer' anymore)















5 Tag championship stuff















6 Typical Edge/Batista/Taker feud stuff















7 MVP gunning for the US Championship















8 Cena being Cena































OK, except for Orton not being the 'Legend Killer' anymore and I do remember hearing Vince saying the word 'choke' is banned, it's still kinda PG. However, I do see your point.
