Corey Graves made a lot of people rewind their DVRs on Raw this week when he said “HOLY SH*T” on live television. Let’s just face it, this is a new WWE… or at least a WWE that’s trying to be new.
WWE runs Raw on a seven second delay. If they wanted to edit out Graves saying sh*t on the air they could. They also edited the S-Bomb out of any replays.
They’ve had to cut other things out with quick thinking after a wardrobe malfunction or when Bret Hart was attacked at the WWE Hall Of Fame, so why not Graves’ profanity malfunction?
This was obviously something WWE planned because you can actually say sh*t on television now, especially on the USA Network. The thing is that they just don’t say sh*t or goddamn because of their family-friendly TV-PG bullsh*t. Oh, they can probably say that too if they wanted to. They are on live television, after all.
It wouldn’t surprise us one bit if this had something to do with an idea from Paul Heyman. Accidentally showing The Street Profits was probably on Heyman too if it was on purpose. We’re not giving him credit for dropping an AEW mention on social media though. Someone’s probably getting yelled at over that one.
