WWE has embarked on a transformative journey under the guidance of WWF Legend Triple H (Paul Levesque), demonstrating significant changes that have captivated audiences worldwide.

One notable shift has been the occasional use of swearing in promos, a departure from the so called PG-era, as acknowledged by Triple H himself. This change marks a symbolic end to the PG-era on WWE TV, according to the Wrestling Observer.

While potential changes to TV programming, including RAW’s move to Netflix and NXT’s transition to CW, are being considered, no definitive decisions have been reached. The recent emphasis on maintaining a PG image seems to be diminishing, especially in non-television platforms and social media.

Paul Heyman’s Hall of Fame speech, which paid homage to ECW’s legacy, further signifies WWE’s evolution. As the company potentially bids farewell to the PG era, anticipation grows for a return to its roots, promising an exciting future for WWE in this new era of growth.

Here’s what the Wrestling Observer reported:

“It was said to us that the Rock interviews and Heyman promo are considered the official end of the PG era. This isn’t to say that the TV shows will be changing. That is something talked about but no decision has been made, but I’m guessing a decision will be made at the end of the year when RAW goes to Netflix and NXT to CW, based on what those broadcasters want and also what sponsors will be comfortable with.

So that will be determined months from now, but the attempts to keep things PG in the big picture which had been a big thing to the point of the memo being sent out about it several weeks back, such as in social media or in non-television shows, is now no longer the case.

Another thing about the Heyman speech, which set social media records for a Hall of Fame speech viewing, is that it was also meant as the spiritual closing of the book by WWE on ECW and essentially having it be the Hall of Fame key act.

That’s why Heyman spent so much time on it, why Stephanie McMahon wore an ECW bonnet in the front row during the speech and why Tommy Dreamer, RVD and The Dudleys were placed where they were to hug Heyman as he came out. Heyman was going in any way as Paul Levesque’s first-ever Hall of Fame pick, and being in Philadelphia, but it was very much to acknowledge ECW in Philadelphia.”
