Linda McMahon Says She Was Not Responsible For WWE Going PG

Linda McMahon Says She Was Not Responsible For WWE Going PG

During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated's Extra Mustard Blog, former WWE CEO Linda McMahon promoted her new Women's Leadership LIVE venture, which is designed to "educate, inspire, and empower women to stand out as catalysts for change and to build a world where women obtaining and exercising power is both expected and commonplace."

During the interview, she also discussed a number of different topics, a couple of them being that she was not the one responsible for WWE going from TV-14 to TV-PG, as well as stating that she has never met anyone else like her husband, the current Chairman and CEO of WWE, Vince McMahon. Below is what Linda had to say:

On WWE Going PG

"That wasn’t me, so much, moving to a PG-rating. The development of WWE programming, over time, has mirrored the market place. During the time that WWE was in the 'Attitude Era,' which was TV-14–if you looked at television programming and movies that were produced, they were edgier during that same time frame. Then, as that opinion shifted, WWE’s opinion shifted, as well, and sponsors had different demands. It was more of a family-friendlier audience to come back to PG-TV."

If She Has Ever Met Anyone Like Her Husband

"No, I’ve yet to meet anyone like him. I was the honors student and the civic leader in my hometown, and Vince was the local badass. There was a little bit of that bad boy aspect that I think was incredibly appealing, and it must have been–we’ll have our fiftieth anniversary this coming August. He’s one of the smartest people I know, and a very shrewd businessman."
