## "Attitude" Era: 1997-2001. This era changed wrestling from being aimed at kids, to being aimed at teenagers. The landscape isn't the same today as it was then. Austin, HHH, Shawn, Foley, Taker etc. were veterans who toiled in the midcard for years. They were competitive. They were hungry to succeed. They had their pick of WWE, WCW and ECW. After the MontrealScrewjob (which created the evil Mr. [=McMahon=] character), and Austin defeating Shawn Micheals for the WWF title, thus igniting the Attitude Era. WWF changed from a warm & fuzzy program to a much more controversial one revolving around the Austin character, who drank beer on TV, gave everyone the middle finger, and raised hell. [=DX=] and Goldust were making sex jokes, groping audience members and acting like total degenerates. Women were used as eye candy to appeal to male viewers. It was all about controversy and getting ratings. ''Smackdown!'' debuted as a B-Show based on one of The Rock's edgier catchphrases. In some ways, the most embarrassing chapter in the company's history, and in others the most exciting (because it's just so unpredictable).

** After the fall of WCW the 220 lbs Chris Benoit as World Heavyweight Champion was a big deal in 2004. With the '''[[SignificantMonogram C]]'''ruiser '''W'''eight '''C'''lassic in 2016, it was stated the weight limit would be 205 lbs, which theoretically means anyone weighing at least 205 can also be a heavyweight champion in WWE, still higher than contemporary boxing but ''lower'' than any other major pro wrestling promotion with weight classes. This may not change who actually gets the belt, but it's a step.
