Stephanie McMahon Refuses To Move To TV-14 Rating

Stephanie McMahon Refuses To Move To TV-14 Rating

Last month, there was a rumor circulated on social media that WWE considering going back to TV-14 in near future. However, the WWE product completely changed after Vince McMahon stepped down from WWE duties and the ratings are doing well since Triple H took over control of the company.

Many fans praised what Triple H did to the business in the past few weeks. It looks like WWE won’t be changing to the TV-14 anytime soon.

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer reported that WWE Co-CEO Stephanie McMahon opposed the idea of WWE going back to TV-14.

That’s not gonna happen now yet. That was one of the new things. Andrew knows the whole story but there were memos and everything. I mean it was planned. And I think it’s the new regime and that could be Stephanie instead of Vince. You know Vince maybe was considering it. Stephanie’s thing is you know we don’t need it. And they don’t. Before when things were down, things were declining, you kind of go what can we do to reverse the decline. When things are going up and haven’t done it, you don’t have to go like, ‘Hey, you know, we got to come up with some ideas to make things go up. And they’re doing swearing so maybe we got to do that one now. AEW is not going up and we are going up.’ So why do we need to fight them on their own. To do what they did, that stopped working. The trajectory of everything, it’s kind of like… Yeah, that’s probably a decision we shouldn’t make right now. So they didn’t. I actually congratulate them for reversing course based on analyzing what’s happened in the last four months.
