WWE: Five Positive Counterpoints to WWE's Rebrand/Language Changes

Recently, there's been incredible buzz here at Bleacher Report and other such sites regarding WWE's decision to eliminate the word "wrestling" from their name, retitle themselves simply "WWE" and even issue an approved list of terminology that's acceptable and not acceptable by voice-over workers employed by them.

For the most part, the response to this news has been very negative among longtime fans, and to some extent, I can't say I disagree. 

I've been a "wrestling fan" since the early 90s, so I can appreciate the fervor in fans who hate the idea that the "wrestling" aspect of their favorite "wrestling" company seems to be getting the shove.

However, being the balanced son of a gun that I am, I feel compelled to at least offer a counterpoint in hopes that all of us can see both sides of the issue at hand. 

Even if I don't necessarily agree, at least we can look at other aspects and see if some optimism can be garnered.
