According to reports, The Big Man is targeting the 18-34 demographic. Essentially, this means that the company is eliminating the overall PG Era vibe, and bringing back The Attitude Era. Hence, the WWE Universe can expect harsher language, more in-ring aggression. And, female Superstars will have more liberty and freedom with their attire.

However, Vince McMahon plans on keeping the characters and storylines similar to what they are now. Unfortunately, The Big Man has not revealed the plans of when these changes will take form. But, it will definitely happen considering the USA Network is on board with the plans.

If WWE can successfully bring back The Attitude Era, undoubtedly, it will be a tremendous success. However, it’s a definite that WWE will not bring back all of The Attitude Era considering a significant part of their audience is still from the PG age group.
