WWE Raw included a few very interesting pieces of booking and creative decisions that piqued our attention in a big way. However, one instance of this new Paul Heyman Era verbiage seemed to slip by most fans while still making an impression.
Maria Kanellis opened up in a big way on Raw and berated her husband, but before they even made their way to the ring she dropped a pretty fierce promo on Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins. She called Mike Kanellis her bitch which really drew our attention away from another word she slipped in there on purpose as well.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that Maria making reference to pushing a baby out of her uterus was actually a line implanted to capture the audience’s attention as well.
“So that is another thing that you’re supposed to think like ‘Wow she said that on TV’ because that normally would not be something that you would say on Raw. That’s not the usual Vince McMahon verbiage.”
We could very well see and hear some big things change when it comes to what performers are allowed to say on Raw from this point on. There are going to be the old standards, but Heyman has already slipped in “sh*t”, “hospital”, and “uterus.” So he’s off to a pretty good start so far.
Does anyone have the betting odds of how long it will be until someone mentions CM Punk by name on the red brand?
