Blood on the WWE Network (Video)

I think this video definitively answers the question.

With the WWE Network set to launch just one week from today, the promotion has been releasing videos from its roster of talent detailing the content they're excited about digesting once the service goes live. There's a lot to choose from, after all, and this is a nice way to entice fans to throw down some coin so they can get in on the action.

There are still questions regarding said content, however, namely how it will be presented in contrast to the current product. Essentially, with WWE going PG and doing away with things like bleeding during matches, will old footage be edited?

The answer would seem to come via the WWE Network Q&A here:

WWE Network will contain a range of programming suitable for various audiences. Content rated TV-14 or TV-MA will be preceded by appropriate advisory messages recommending viewer discretion. Parental controls will be available for on-demand content.

When wrestlers bleed during matches today, it's generally avoided on television and any pictures posted on WWE.com after are done in black and white. Considering how brutal some past matches were, it's fair to wonder if WWE would want to avoid showing them.

As you can see in the video above, it certainly looks as though everything will be shown as it happened. And that's wonderful news, really.
