Surprisingly tame site for young wrestling buffs.

What parents need to know

Positive messages

The wrestling league's angry leprechaun character -- played by a little person -- isn't presented in a very sensitive way. And, of course, fighting is shown to be very exciting and fun.


It's a site about pro wrestling, but there's surprisingly little physical violence. The videos are almost all promotional vehicles for the stars or trash-talking and not a lot of ring action. Some gross stuff: a game that involves shooting bugs in a mouth full of yellow teeth.

Not applicable

Swear words are censored from one video; a character in another clip says "damn," but the site language is really pretty tame -- even from Edge, the Rated-R Superstar.


The site heavily promotes the WWE Kids print magazine via banner ads and a special section that gives a preview of part of the current issue.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the World Wrestling Entertainment does encourage violence -- that is, after all, an inescapable part of pro wrestling -- but really, much of this site's content is good, surprisingly-clean fun. The site contains a lot of videos; some feature kids doing things like trick-or-treating with wrestlers. Most are funny and completely kid-friendly (in one, even the word "jackass" has been bleeped out). There are plenty of ads and the site's magazine section is one big ad for the WWE Kids print publication.

What's it about?

WWEKIDS.COM'S content is fun -- zany noises ring out when you roll over the navigation buttons, goofy games let kids rearrange a wrestler's face, and quizzes let them weigh in on topics like the grossest thing their cafeteria has ever served. Fans can get their information fix in the Superstars section, which features WWE wrestler profiles. Most profiles offer lots of insider info such as childhood pictures, videos, and surveys listing things like the wrestler's most embarrassing moment. The site's entire "Gear" section isn't live yet, so it's possible more profile information will also be added over time.

Is it any good?


The fan stuff is cool, but the videos are the most entertaining part of the site. They're everywhere -- in the Kids TV section, in the wrestler profiles, on the home page -- and they range from show clips to individual wrestler promo ads to funny skits. The only slightly frustrating thing (aside from the fact background music and noise make it hard to hear the dialog in many of them) is that a short ad for the site precedes each video, and there's no way to tell how long they are. Some are just a few seconds long; others take a few minutes. If you can handle the ads, there's a lot of fun to be had at the well-planned WWEKids.com.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about why something as seemingly innocent as wrestling could actually result in somebody being hurt. Why is it wrong to fight for the sake of fighting? What's the difference between entertainment and real life, and what are the consequences for fighting when you're not on a TV show?

It's fine if you don't let your kid watch the show at least let them watch this.

HARDCORE ACTION!!!... for Tots

Alright, let's be honest: if your child has a subscription to WWE Kids... and they're on this website... you're most likely one of those rednecks who hold up signs and scream at the wrestlers during the show. Yes, it's a stereotype, but that doesn't make it any less true. But seriously... this is just a standard kiddie site with some info about the wrestlers, polls, silly cartoon-ish games, ect. If a child is on this website, there's a very good chance that they are already familiar with the WWE. And, if they are already familiar with the WWE, then this website will seem remarkably tame. There is really nothing objectionable on this website. Any "offensive" content from the WWE is not present on this website for kids.
