I'm sure they do, and I'm sure in some ways it's much stricter in this PC age. 

As far as the hardcore matches, they need to limit these to PPV anyway, and only do a couple a year.  I know they have a few guys like Jimmy Havoc who are known for this shit, but I don't need to see thumbtacks and all the garbage wrestling every week.  It's already a bit of overkill with AEW and they haven't even started yet.

I do hope they can use a bit more adult language and "adult situations" though.  Even this should be kept in check to big angles and not over-used.  Just keep it more realistic to sound the way real humans actually talk (as opposed to WWE where no one sounds human), but they don't need to rely on profanity.  That's often a crutch in place of good storytelling, and AEW desperately needs to prove that they can tell stories and get characters not in The Elite over.

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
