WWE reportedly unbans two terms; no longer considered “dirty words”

WWE has reportedly lifted its ban on the terms “wrestler” and “wrestling” due to Triple H’s strong creative appeal.

Under Vince McMahon’s regime, WWE had banned a number of words, including “wrestler” and “wrestling.”

Vince McMahon recently announced his retirement from pro wrestling amid an investigation into a multimillion-dollar hush money scandal. In light of McMahon’s resignation, Triple H was brought back as head of creative.

According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the terms “wrestler” and “wrestling” can now be used by superstars on television and are no longer considered “dirty words”.

According to Meltzer, “almost everyone” backstage is quite happy with the new policy, which allows superstars to use terms like “wrestler” and “wrestling” with no consequences. Fans are quite pleased that the ban is said to be lifted and hope for more positive changes in the near future.

Interestingly, WWE has allowed some of their top Superstars to use banned terms in the past. CM Punk used to utter banned words on live TV but likely got the green light for it.

Top superstar Cody Rhodes used the terms “wrestler” and “championship belt” on the April 11, 2022 episode of RAW. Here’s what Rhodes had to say about the use of those words:

“If they fine me $1,000 every time I say belt, I’m fine with that. Belt. It can be a title belt, sure, it’s a championship. But it’s also physically about your waistline. It’s a belt. So these are great belts [in the new Mattel figures].” []H/T Wrestling Inc]

It would be interesting to see what major changes flow into the product over the coming months. Fans would like to see more traditional wrestling terms unbanned in the near future.
