When Kurt Angle entered WWE in 1998, the brand was all about Attitude. Over the years, things have become a little more family-friendly with today's era being dubbed the PG Era.
And though television ratings might not reflect it, Angle believes this era is good for wrestling for non-television reasons.
During a recent Facebook Q&A, Angle gave his thoughts on the PG Era.
"I think the PG Era is good for wrestling. I understand that we had more creative control over our characters before PG, but the fact that the PG Era came around has helped the wrestlers stay healthier. Drug tests, physicals, doctors, trainers, have become important to taking care of the health of superstars. The attitude era was special, but the wrestlers did not have the benefits of what these superstars have today. PG Era needed to happen. Plus the fact that WWE is marketing to families instead of young adults," he replied.
