WWE currently has five different television shows that they produce weekly: ''[[Wrestling/WWERaw Raw]]'' and ''[[Wrestling/WWESmackDown SmackDown]]'', which between 2002 and circa 2011/2012 acted as two separate brands with little interaction between the two shows except during [=PPVs=], and are considered the A Shows, although ''[=SmackDown=]'' could these days be considered a B show. ''[[Wrestling/WWEMainEvent Main Event]]'', ''[[Wrestling/WWESuperstars Superstars]]'' and ''[[Wrestling/{{WWENXT}} NXT]]'' are C level shows, with ''NXT'' as the show for their developmental talent. A recent phenomenon has been ''NXT'' rising to the "A-level" of quality and production in the eyes of many ''fans'', but, well, see the ''NXT'' page for more information on that.

They currently hold twelve [=PPVs=] a year, namely: ''Wrestling/RoyalRumble, Fastlane, Wrestling/WrestleMania, Extreme Rules, Payback, Wrestling/MoneyInTheBank, Battleground, Wrestling/SummerSlam, Night of Champions, Hell in a Cell, Wrestling/SurvivorSeries and TLC: Tables, Ladders and Chairs.''

## "Ruthless Aggression" Era: Like the New Generation era, was a transitional period for WWE. With the demise of WCW and ECW, the company regressed back to its roots, though not entirely: Wrestling was still TV-14 at this time, allowing sexuality, swearing, blood, among other things. The RA era was an extension of the Attitude Era; a mix of new talent and old talent, and a rebuilding time for WWE. An era that made many of it's own historic moments, such as ''Raw'' having a Women's Main Event, having the Cruiserweight Title Match as a main event (when Matt Hardy took on Rey Mysterio) and, for the first time, TLC was featured as a single's match. Other highlights include the formation of the group Evolution that launched the careers of both Batista and Randy Orton, the return of HBK to wrestling from a 4 year hiatus, and the start of John Cena's Career (in which he stumbled upon his rap Gimmick that launched his popularity).

Indeed, the WWE has made a remarkable turnaround: It's seen (again) by the mainstream as family entertainment. Big-money advertisers are lining up, the government isn't hounding them anymore, the media has stopped digging around WWE trash cans looking for scandals, WWE performers (especially John Cena) are in high demand in other forms of entertainment and make frequent media appearances. For a while, the downgrade to PG ironically destroyed what little credibility and class the women (now Divas) division had, as it was forbidden for women wrestlers to get beaten up, so they had catfights for our amusement.
