Vince McMahon retired last month and Triple H was then made the head of Creative in WWE. This was a dream come true for many fans, as they wanted this for years. WWE is no longer banning talent from using certain words either.
Under Vince McMahon’s rule, there were quite a few modern pro wrestling words that were banned. This included the word ‘wrestler’ as well as ‘Championship belts.’ Things have clearly changed now, by the looks of it.
According to Dave Meltzer in the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, talents were previously instructed to never use “wrestler” and “wrestling” without receiving authorization. However, the terms are no longer considered “dirty words” and can be used whenever.
CM Punk used to say banned words during his time in WWE as well, but it is likely he got the go-ahead before using them. Even Cody Rhodes stated that he’d gladly pay a $1K fine for using banned words in WWE.
Things are clearly changing in WWE under Triple H’s reign. Fans and pro wrestlers alike couldn’t be happier with this surprising turn of events. We’ll have to see what WWE has planned for fans next.
