Very true. They have a lot less of a chance of falling into the same traps. For one, they don't have the schedule they used to. It used to be that they wrestled every night and two shows on Sunday so they were on the road constantly. These days, it's a double taping on Monday and maybe a couple house shows the rest of the week with an overseas tour every few months. They've also eliminated a lot of the concussion-causing moves like pile drivers (harmful when botched), flying headbutts (Chris Benoit) and head-to-chair chair shots. And they're actually pretty stringent with their wellness policy. On top of all of that, it's just not the same type of person who gets into the business nowadays.
