JR Blog's: Austin & The Rock in WWE PG Era

I missed this JR blog entry from November 2, 2010:

Great talents such as Steve Austin and the Rock would have been ultra successful today in the PG land of WWE as they were in TV14 days during the Attitude Era. Prime time players are able to adapt to their audience and the rules of engagement. For anyone to think that the Attitude Era alone made Austin and Rock stars is naive and misguided. Can you imagine the buzz that the 'Texas Rattlesnake' and the 'Great One' would create if they were performing in WWE today? No one would notice the TV program rating I can assure you. Same goes for Shawn Michaels, among others, who had/have 'it' no matter the generation. Some e-mailers are over thinking this matter but over thinking things in the world of pro wrestling isn't a revelation nowadays either. How would you like to have any one of the three, aforementioned men booked at WM27?
