Home » WWE News » Push to Make RAW More Edgy, Possible Date for WM 30 Announcement, More

- We noted before that The Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana is a front runner to host WrestleMania 30 in 2014. There’s some speculation within WWE that they will make the announcement at the 2013 Elimination Chamber pay-per-view on February 17th, from the New Orleans Arena, which is adjacent to the Superdome.

– WWE officials are looking to be more edgier with RAW. The feeling is that Vince McMahon isn’t behind the new push but obviously is on-board with it. Vince realizes that numbers are down and it’s said that he is open to suggestions.

With the low ratings, WWE officials want to put out a product that’s a little different than what we’ve seen over the past year or so. We can also expect to see more wrestling-heavy WWE programming.

    mtlhitman you should just never talk you make yourself sound like a half retarded 11 year old..what the WWE needs to be great again, its very simple, wrestling matches!!good storylines!! good feuds!! less childish mentalitys writing all their heels to be weak cowards and their faces to be supermen, make wrestling unpredictable again. it doesnt need swearing and bra and panties matches and chair shots and blood and all this other bull, save blood and chair shots for when it’ll mean something and and swearing only appeals to half wits and children who equate swearing with “cool” and bra and panties matches are humiliating and honestly boring..if I wanna get off I’ll watch porn.

  • Bill

    The first few years of the Attitude Era were PG. The stories need to be edgier, not just the language.

  • Jeremy

    Wait, so they’re gonna have real live wrestling on a 3 hour wrestling show now?! Holy shit, that is edgy!

  • mtlhitman

    wwe should have a ecw type feel of the old ecw not the stupid version of ecw. bring back some stuff of what the attituse era had.

  • JohnCena33

    When WWE says edgy hopefully they mean,
    Wrestling matches not dance offs,
    Swearing instead of censoring,
    Feuds that are actually a feud not “that’s my title, no it’s mine” story
    More crazy moments like returning stars, hell raising moments, backstage segments

  • Seth

    How many times have I seen that line, “more wrestling-heavy.” Believe it when I see it.

  • Robinson

    I just want chair shots to the head lol. I do agree its more about stories then curing and nudity. They need to hire people who actually know the business to write for them.

  • TheSheepDog

    Ah whatever! The entitled almighty IWC will still bitch its not edgy enough, or too edgy (punk and heyman heart attack segment). So really, nothing will change.

  • Jon

    Will see at TLC. If it truly edgeier we will blood, chair shot not on the back. Heck just bring hardcore back. But I won’t believe it til I see it

  • Jimbo

    Gee, it’s about freaking time. All it took was several years of wading through bullshit for them to figure it out.

  • Kannon81

    Calm down and relax guys. At least Vince is finally noticing that there is a problem and he is OPEN to ideas. Lets see how this plays out before bitching about this and that.

  • Andy

    Edgy does not equal attitude era, keep that in mind.

  • Rob

    Really? Youre saying the cena/aj love story isnt bad?
    Give us a legit dominant heel, not a heel thats scratching and chasing Cena trying to find ways to cheat to win.

  • Stevie P

    You know what made me watch Nitro? The first hour of it. You know what made me watch it? The wrestling. Malenko, Guerrero, Rey, Jericho, Benoit, Ultimo Dragon. These guys wrestled. It was my favorite part of Monday night. Bring back wrestling.

  • Nate

    In fairness, they havn’t been that bad lately, take away Brodus, Hornswaggle and Kahli and you have had some great narrative with The Shield and such.

    I don’t think more nudity and swearing will solve their ratings though, but it will be a start.

  • Bawb

    They can drop as many curses as they want to, but it all comes down to good stories, interesting and developing characters, and intense dialogue. TNA likes to drop curses and spill blood to be “edgy” but it’s worthless on account of nonsensical stories. As long as I don’t see wrestlers hugging and dancing with each other ala the Great Khali or Brodus Clay, I’ll be a bit more satisfied.

    Make Raw more edgy? Why not install Adam Copeland as the new GM?

    Sorry, I couldn’t resist!!!

  • ice-cream bar superstar

    Their definition of edgy is when Rock and Cena call each other bitch.

  • david

    I hope they bring back the bra and panties matches

  • :O

    the attitude era v2 will be back!

  • Will

    Thank God. I’m sick of this PG bullshit.

  • Mark

    AT LAST THE PENNY DROPS!!!!
