Over the years and especially in the last period, WWE has created a sort of black list, in which it has inserted various terms, words and definitions, which absolutely cannot be mentioned in front of the company's cameras, with words like "belt", "blood" and "Diva", which have now become obsolete from the vocabulary of the Superstars of the McMahon-owned company.
In recent months, the entire list of terms literally banned by Vince McMahon has come out, with which the WWE also dispensed with the terms "wrestling" and "wrestler"; a rather paradoxical thing if you think that WWE is precisely the number one company in the world when it comes to the discipline of pro-wrestling.
WWE also adds some cities to its blacklist
During a recent WWE Live Supershow in Hershey, Pennsylvania, Alexa Bliss teamed up with Bianca Belair for the first time in her career. Before this event, both women had been part of the same bouts on only two other occasions - the 2020 and 2021 Women's Royal Rumble matches.
According to what was reported in the last hours by the well-known Wrestling Observer site, through the daily newsletters made by the usual Dave Meltzer, it would seem that the WWE has also included in this list the names of the small towns where it holds its main shows, which according to the company does not they are well known enough to be mentioned on TV.
To the list of terms and words not to say on TV, "Raleigh" would also be added, a city in North Carolina where the company's latest ptapings were held, with the announcers and commentators of the evening who did not mention the town at all.
TV. Apparently, the WWE instead of "disfiguring" by saying that it has landed in some little town in the USA for its tapings, directly avoids mentioning the location, so as to never make a bad impression around the world.
Now let's see what are the other terms that for no reason in the world a Superstar or an official of the company has to say live: "Blood, choke, belt, strap, diva, headshot, trauma, kayfabe, Mofos, house show, DQ, The Anti-Diva, spinal injuries, victim, violence, violent, wrestling, wrestlers, WWF, wifebeater, curb stomp, phrases that include the words 'push' and 'go over', babyface, heel, job, jobber, card, strangle, kill and finally murder."
Although the Bliss-Belair pairing does seem a bit unexpected, non-televised WWE events often feature such random crowd-pleasing moments. But if both superstars end up on the same brand during next month's draft, would you like to see them form a tag team for good?
