I don't know. I think it's a different business today, and ratings don't mean as much as they used to. TV isn't the only source of ad revenue anymore. Like everything else these days, it's all about social media. Ratings have been shit for quite a while now, but the WWE gets it's brand out there through other means, like twitter and facebook. There are more people on mobile devices at any given time, than there are watching TV.

Having said that I'm not hung up on a return to the attitude era, it had some awful angles (Katie Vick, mae youngs hands etc.) I just simply want a change.
I don't think it matters all that much, what the boundaries are, if the booking remains as terrible as it is.

Can also argue that the new established fanbase of kids will grow up and WWE will need to cater the product to teenagers.
Nah, they'll just turn into jaded fans like we are. One thing the world isn't running low on, are babies. There will always be a new audience of children, waiting in the wings.
