Straight Shooters: WWE’s edgier content this week, NJPW G1 Climax preview

Note: You may need to allow 10-15 seconds after pressing play above for the podcast to begin.

Well, that was an interesting week of WWE content.

This week, Nick (@nickpiccone) and Vaughn (@VaughnMJohnson) discuss the edgier content we saw on Monday Night RAW and SmackDown Live this past week, and whether or not programming like that will continue to push the envelope in the PG era. Can WWE continue with adult-oriented themes in 2019, even if they don’t go as far as the Attitude Era in the late 90s did? Will they gain fans by shifting the storylines like they did in the 90s? Will lapsed fans come back? The guys discuss their thoughts on it all.

They also provide a quick preview of NJPW’s G1 Climax, set to begin Saturday night in Dallas.
