CM Punk was recently interviewed by RedEyeChicago.com to promote Monday’s RAW taping at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois and he talked about the often criticized PG rating that WWE has for all of its programming. Punk took the opportunity to defend the TV rating.
“I don’t think the WWE is going to go anything but PG. I don’t see the need for the TV-14 rating because that was the past and we are opening new doors to fans across the world,” the WWE Champion said. “Swearing to just swear isn’t entertaining to me whatever you’re watching. There are some things I get away with, but at the same time I have to remember it is a family-orientated show. I think the product in general is a lot better when we have to police ourselves, knowing that families are out there watching and listening to every word. The so-called ‘Attitude Era’ is not needed in this day in age of sports entertainment.”
