WWE creative was overseen by Vince McMahon, who had a roster of words that wrestlers and on-air talent were not allowed to use.

The terms “wrestling” and “wrestler,” which McMahon had forbade to be used, were reportedly allowed to be used in August after Triple H took over creative responsibilities after McMahon resigned from his WWE duties.

There had been rumours about when McMahon would assume back control of creative after he rejoined the organisation in January as the Executive Chairman of the WWE Board of Directors. When McMahon was backstage at a recent WWE Raw event, fans and performers who were concerned about this prospect were absolutely worried.

A WWE talent was reportedly involved in a pre-taped promo that had to be redone because the word “wrestling” was used according to Dave Meltzer in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter:

“If you haven’t seen the fingerprints of Vince McMahon on camera, and there are little things here and there, there was a pre-tape interview on the 3/20 Raw where somebody used the term “wrestling” and they had to redo. Granted since Reigns and Rhodes used the term pro wrestlers in their promo on the same show”

– Dave Meltzer

It seems like the word “wrestling” itself has not been banned again as it was used multiple times in the main event segment between Roman Reigns and Cody Rhodes, but it is definitely peculiar that a promo from earlier in the show had to be redone because of it.
