TNT will allow so many S-Bombs per episode of AEW programming, but the F-Bomb is still a big no-no.
During the AEW World Title eliminator tournament match between Dustin Rhodes and Bryan Danielson, Schiavone exclaimed that The American Dragon had “f*cked up” after ticking off The Natural. Tony talked to Conrad Thompson about the slip-up on What Happened When.
“When did I say f*ck? And they let it air? … “I spent the very next day with Tony Khan. He didn’t say anything to me about it. Who knows. It’s gone. I guess it’s online now, isn’t it?”
We have heard several wrestlers use adult language on AEW programming, but never the f-bomb into a live mic. Schiavone is claiming ignorance on the matter. It’s hard to believe he didn’t realize his mistake made the air.
Some fans believe Schiavone was saying “bucked” instead of the profanity. If Tony Khan didn’t mention it during their time together, it must not have been that big of deal. This is interesting, because Jim Ross also didn’t realize he said “WWE Dynamite” until he looked on social media.
Tony Schiavone took a 13-year break from the world of pro wrestling after leaving Impact in 2003. He returned for a two-year run with Major League Wrestling before becoming one of the voices of All Elite Wrestling.
