WWE’s Summerslam event is now rated TV-14 and there seems to be a good reason for that.

We previously reported that DirecTV is now advertising Summerslam as a TV-14 event. They’re not the only ones though because across the board viewers are now warned that things could get a little dicey. However, it should also be noted that a couple of providers still list it as a TV-PG event.

Brad Shepard reports that WWE issued this big ratings change because Summerslam has the capability of getting a little violent this year. Let’s just see what they plan on doing to earn that ratings.

According to a source in #WWE, the reason #WWE SummerSlam is advertised as TV-14 is because the show is “going to get violent.” I’m told blood will be shed, and also something big is being planned for the Daniel Bryan/Rowan/Roman Reigns storyline.


It will be very interesting to see what kind of “blood & guts” WWE is able to pull off at the biggest party of the summer. Because WWE could use this big stage to capture a lot of interest.

Things could be very different around WWE if they’re planning for blood as well. It is certainly making us pay a little bit closer attention to the level of violence that they will bring to the table this Sunday.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
