Report: Another Banned Word In WWE Revealed
WWE have reportedly added another word to their 'banned' list
A new term has been added to WWE's notorious 'banned' list, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
Meltzer was discussing the promo segment between Mustafa Ali, The Miz and United States Champion Austin Theory from this past Monday's episode of Raw. During the segment, Theory said that his mentor, Vince McMahon, had agreed to give Ali a match later in the show.
It was billed as a 'non-title championship contender's match'.
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer stated the way it was referenced was a mistake because saying 'non-title' is currently outlawed. Meltzer said: "They can't say non-title. That's a banned term".
Non-title joins other words such as blood, belt, choke, strap, diva, trauma, head shot, kayfabe, house show and DQ as ones that are no longer utterable on WWE broadcasts.
As well as outright banning words, the WWE Chairman will often come up with new terms for what he considers outdated ones. Earlier this year, for example, WWE stopped saying 'pay-per-view', replacing it with 'premium live event'.
