Topic: Why CM Punk and the TV-PG (Reality) Era Are Better than Stone Cold and the TV-14 Era
As we sank deeper into the “family friendly” and predictable antics of the PG Era, we found salvation in the likes of an unlikely hero known as CM Punk. It has been two months since Punk cut his infamous “shoot” on RAW and the WWE has undergone a drastic change since.
WWE programming has revolved around CM Punk and John Cena since, while introducing the forgotten art of media influence. Simply put, the WWE has done everything in its power to legitimize their recent efforts by inserting real-life events into the forthcoming era.
And who better to be the proverbial flag-bearer than the Second City Saint, CM Punk.
Punk’s influence and spectacular personality has added more edge, unpredictability and real life controversy into WWE programming. At the same time, Punk has drawn comparisons to a similar (but different) anti-hero in Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Austin was the face of the WWE during the Attitude Era.
The similarities between the flag-bearers and their respective eras have sparked a considerable amount of speculation as of late.
In turn, Jacob Waring presented the task of comparing the two eras and to prove why Punk and TV-PG are better than Austin and TV-14.
