In the aftermath of the Invasion angle, WWF made several major changes to their product. Jerry Lawler returned to the company after a nine-month hiatus, after his replacement on commentary Paul Heyman was fired on-screen by Vince McMahon.
However, the storyline proved unpopular with fans and Hogan soon turned face at WrestleMania X8 after his classic match with The Rock, which The Rock won.
This became effective from April 1, on Raw, thus leading to a brand new era, and ending the Attitude Era. Shortly thereafter, they eliminated all elements that used the term Federation; this affected licensed merchandise such as action figures, video games, and home video releases with its previous logo, which was replaced by a new "scratch" logo.
This problem was solved by introducing a "Brand Extension", with the roster split in half and the talent assigned to either Raw or SmackDown!
Wrestlers, commentators and referees became show-exclusive, and the shows were given separate on-screen General Managers. The brand extension came into effect on April 1, Additionally, both Raw and SmackDown!

Matches featuring the rule set of the ECW promotion were classified as being contested under " Extreme Rules " and were only fought when specified otherwise.
In the Summer of , WWE began distancing itself from the edgier content of years past, going with a more conservative approach.
Intentionally blading , which was common until then, became forbidden in the WWE. John Cena remained the top star of the company during this era. New superstars Sheamus and Alberto del Rio also registered notable success during this period winning the WWE Championship in the years and respectively.
Punk, who had become a top star during the summer of due to his infamous "Pipe bomb" promo, would hold the WWE Championship for days before losing to The Rock in at the Royal Rumble , a reign recognized by WWE as the sixth- longest championship reign of all-time and the longest in 25 years.
Popular stable The Shield were prominently featured during this period. The winner of the season was Wade Barrett , mentored by Chris Jericho. Six days after the end of the first season, the rookies, now calling themselves The Nexus , interfered in the Raw main event match between John Cena and CM Punk , attacking both competitors as well as the announcing team, before dismantling the ring area and surrounding equipment.
As a consequence, WWE announced via their official website four days later that Bryan had been legitimately released from his contract.
A fifth season, dubbed NXT Redemption , featuring former NXT participants, never announced a winner and quietly ended with Derrick Bateman being the sole remaining participant.
Eventually, the show morphed into both a television show and WWE's new official development territory , replacing Florida Championship Wrestling , and is permanently located at Full Sail University.
In , Daniel Bryan became one of the most popular wrestlers in the company. On several occasions, fans would begin hijacking segments in which Bryan was either not involved in, or involved only secondarily, with his "Yes!

On the March 24, episode of Raw , Bryan's rival at the time Triple H dubbed this point in WWE as "The Reality Era" where he acknowledged the Internet and fans being more knowledgeable about the behind-the-scenes workings of WWE as well as having more influence on the company than ever before.

The Authority officially disbanded on May 1, The Payback event, held on May 1, , was billed as the start of a "New Era". Reigns would go on to be prominently featured throughout this era.
Later in May , WWE announced that a roster split , similar to the one in , would take place beginning in July.
Female Superstars also began receiving more air time for their matches, and begun receiving as much spotlight as male superstars, thus the "New era" has been credited as being the start of the "women's evolution.
At this point, Becky Lynch started referring to herself as "The Man", becoming one of the most popular stars. WWE would also go on to establish Braun Strowman as one of the biggest superstars of the company in after he attacked and injured Reigns during an interview on Raw.
Strowman went on to beat down other wrestlers on the roster and have a decisive victory over Reigns at Payback on April It was shown on two nights of April 4 and April 5 respectively.

In keeping with his Blue Blazer's new "buffoonish superhero" character, he was to begin a dramatic entrance, being lowered to just above ring level, at which time he would act "entangled", then release himself from the safety harness and fall flat on his face for comedic effect —this necessitated the use of a quick release mechanism.
While being lowered into the ring, Hart fell 78 feet 24 m , landing chest-first on the top rope approximately a foot from the nearest turnbuckle , throwing him into the ring.
Hart had performed the stunt only a few times before. Hart's widow Martha has suggested that, by moving around to get comfortable with both the harness and his cape on, Hart unintentionally triggered an early release.
Television viewers did not see the incident. Moments after the fall, a pre-taped vignette was being shown on the pay-per-view broadcast as well as on the monitors in the darkened arena.
Afterward, while Hart was being worked on by medical personnel inside the ring, the live event's broadcast showed only the audience. Meanwhile, WWF television announcer Jim Ross repeatedly told those watching live on pay-per-view that what had just transpired was not a wrestling angle or storyline and that Hart was hurt badly, emphasizing the seriousness of the situation.
While several attempts to revive him were made, he died from his injuries; some believe he died in the ring. On the morning of November 13, , Chavo Guerrero checked into a hotel with his uncle, Eddie Guerrero , in Minneapolis, Minnesota where they were both scheduled be a part of a planned Raw and SmackDown!

Vickie Guerrero , Eddie's wife, later announced that an autopsy ruled the cause of death to be massive heart failure. Guerrero's death fell on the day that he had been scheduled to compete in a match for the World Heavyweight Championship versus Batista and Randy Orton.
The company held tributes to Guerrero on both Raw and SmackDown during the week following his death. Following Guerrero's death, Vince McMahon announced a new drug policy under which performers would be subject to random drug tests by an independent company and would receive regular medical physicals with an emphasis on cardiovascular health.
WWE canceled the scheduled three-hour-long live Raw show on June 25 which, coincidentally, was supposed to be a scripted memorial for the Mr.
McMahon character , and replaced the broadcast version with a tribute to his life and career, featuring past matches, segments from the Hard Knocks: The Chris Benoit Story DVD , and comments from wrestlers and announcers from the Raw, SmackDown!
Shortly after the program aired, many of the aired comments were posted on WWE. It was not until the program was nearly over that reports surfaced that police were working under the belief that Benoit murdered his wife and son before killing himself over a three-day period.
The next night, after some of the details of the deaths became available, the company aired a recorded statement by its chairman Vince McMahon before their ECW broadcast:.
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. However, now some 26 hours later, the facts of this horrific tragedy are now apparent.
Therefore, other than my comments, there will be no mention of Mr. Benoit's name tonight. The statement reads: "In Memory of Owen Hart May 7, — May 23, who accidentally passed away during this broadcast.

While Patterson is most widely known in the wrestling world for being the first Intercontinental champion, and for being one of Vince McMahon's on-screen "Stooges" during the popular Attitude Era of the late '90s, perhaps Patterson's most lasting contribution will be the invention of the Royal Rumble match, which was first televised in and is still a yearly tentpole match for WWE.
So I finally brought the idea to Vince. He laughed at the concept at first, saying that an hour was way too long to keep fans interested.
The first Royal Rumble was a success, but until it was over, we didn't really know if it would work. I knew it was a unique idea, but until a crowd responds, it's hard to know for sure.
I can not express how crushed I feel right now with the loss of Pat Patterson. A true member of my family, mentor and dear friend.
I love you Pat.
