The 2018 SummerSlam also carries the TV-14 rating -- the first such since the 2014 edition. The ratings for previous editions have floated between TV-PG, TV-14 and even TV-MA.

It's unclear why specific shows carry the rating while others don't as all Extreme Rules and Hell In A Cell events are TV-PG.

This news comes as a return to TV-14 has become a revived discussion point over the last week.

Last Thursday, Andrew Zarian first reported that the TV-PG rating for the Monday flagship was being dropped on July 18th in exchange for the old rating of TV-14 for the first time since July 2008.

However, Zarian later noted that the change was being discussed internally and not finalized despite an internal memo saying otherwise.

"This is a wild situation. There’s a lot happening behind the scenes. WWE Raw won’t be going to TV-14 on July 18th but still in consideration for a later date," Zarian wrote at the time.

It's also unclear what a move to TV-14 would actually mean in 2022. While some assumed things would return to the Attitude Era days, it could mean the loosening of language with regard to swearing.
