One thing for sure, the censorship changed, and that's about it. Other than that, you just grew up.
I don't think it's much of people growing up more than the actual product being heavily watered down and being strictly made for kids today. There were guys 25-30 yrs old watching Nitro and Raw in the 90s because it was a bit more adult orientated though it still appealed to kids. It was a different era understandably, but I think the shock value really helped Wrestling whether it was someone turning heel or babyface, someone going to either WCW or WWE, etc. The stars today also can't hold a torch to guys like Austin, The Rock, HHH, Taker, HBK, whether it's on the mic or in the ring telling a story. They've shortened the ring and made matches 5-10 min max. I agree though that it's the way media is consumed today. We need everything now and done quick which at least for me takes away from the overall match. For today I do agree it's really mainly for kids, but it wasn't always that way.
