What’s the story?
WWE Hall of Famer Ted DiBiase recently spoke with Sky Sports during which he gave his brief opinion on WWE’s product during the Attitude Era and also provided with a short comparison between WWE’s current product and the content used during the Attitude Era.
In case you didn’t know…
A former three-time WWF Tag Team Champion, Ted DiBiase was considered as one of the most vicious villains during his tenure with the WWE (then WWF) in the 90s. DiBiase aka 'The Million Dollar Man' had numerous accomplishments to his name during his run with the company. In 1987 and 1988, the former two-time Million Dollar Champion was awarded as the Best Heel of the Year by Wrestling Observer.
The heart of the matter
While speaking with Sky Sports, Ted DiBiase stated that at the moment, almost every wrestling fan around the globe talks about and criticizes WWE’s current PG friendly program. However, DiBiase believes that the PG Program is a great initiative that has been taken by Vince McMahon and his team of WWE officials.
The Million Dollar Man additionally claimed, back in the day he was not a big fan of WWE’s TV-14 storylines and the company’s adult-oriented programming content. However, DiBiase added that some of the things that were done during the Attitude Era were really good and humorous, but, the content was sleazy at the same time, something he wasn't a huge fan of.
Ted DiBiase is currently working under WWE’s Legends program but has been making one-off sporadic appearances for the company of late. DiBiase’s latest appearance was at Raw’s 25th Anniversary special episode, several weeks ago at the Barclays Center in New York.
On a large scale, WWE’s audience ratings have definitely dropped a lot ever since the company shifted their program from TV-14 to PG TV. However, the PG Program has been significantly superior in its own manner.
