Unless WWE Are Planning To Turn Raw And SmackDown Into TV-14 Shows Again, Why Don't They Just Call Him ' The Rated PG Superstar'.

They call him that so teens think they are watching something more intense then it actually is.

Well edge had that nickname before the wwe went PG and his just kept it for his gimmick. A few weeks back edge said that I quote Everything we do now is pg well I'm rated r, So I think some time soon the wwe will go back to pg 14.

It rhymes. Rated R Superstar was his gimmick especially with Lita.

You cant just change nicknames. Like for instance, WWE could say lets start referring to Randy Orton as Oily robot with 20 minute headlocks instead of The Viper, but that would never catch on. Hes already called The Viper and they couldn't change that even if they wanted to. Same thing goes for Edge.

Because Edge is kind of a perv. At One Night Stand 2, he was in an intergender Extreme Rules match and the way he pinned Beulah...THAT'S why he's the Rated R Superstar.

It's been Edge's moniker nickname for a couple of years. It keeps with his gimmick. The TExas Rattlesnake stuck with Austin for years. Nicknames stick.































Plus in a promo a few weeks ago he complained about PG WWE, sure it was scripted but he wants to state why he keeps the moniker of Rated R.

Edge has been The Rated R Superstar and WWE has marketed him as such for at least 4 years now. There have been tons of Edge Merchandise built around this character, DVD Sets with matches of edge as this character. Moreover, I think The Slim Jim Advertising Campaign has been centered around this character. WWE has made too much money on this character and too much centered around Edge as The Rated R Superstar to drop this approach. WWE has no plans to change WWE Raw, WWE NXT, WWE Superstars or WWE Smackdown to TV-14, they are going to keep drawing Advertisers, Commercial Sponsors and keep generating millions in revenue every month. If you don't like what WWE is doing, I would suggest that you go to Independnet Wrestling Shows near you. They may have better wrestling matches anyway.
