Stephanie Says WWE Staying PG Even With the Lana/Lashley/Rusev Angle

Dec 19, 2019 - by James Walsh

Gary Cassidy recently spoke to WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon. During the chat, Stephanie McMahon addressed the Lana/Bobby Lashley/Rusev storyline and WWE’s TV-PG rating. According to McMahon, WWE is going to remain TV-PG, but the company will still try to push the envelope with certain storylines. 

Stephanie stated the following: 

“Well, we’re still going to be PG, family friendly, but there is room to push the envelope in some cases.In terms of the Lana-Bobby Lashley storyline, WWE is like a variety show. It is, at the end of the day, competition-based, but especially on RAW and SmackDown, you have more of those soap operatic storylines, and that’s why it’s been showcased on RAW.” 

Also, when Sportskeeda asked her on who from the NXT brand she sees as being the future face of WWE, she stated: 

“I think there are so many opportunities. Keith Lee for sure. Bask in his glory! Rhea Ripley, for sure, stands out. Bianca Belair stands out. Shayna Baszler stands out. Adam Cole stands out. Matt Riddle stands out. Really, everyone on the roster absolutely stands out. Of course, we can’t forget about NXT UK. Pete Dunne, Tyler Bate and everyone else. As you said, NXT started off as a developmental league and has evolved into WWE’s third global touring brand and those stars, there are so many of them that are ready.”
