WWE wants to maintain a certain level of entertainment value in their programming, but they also need to maintain a TV-PG setting. Advertisers like that, and so does their network. Now we have a much better idea of the words that Vince McMahon didn’t want to hear.

While watching a replay of WrestleMania 35, ex WWE writer Dave Schilling live tweeted his watch along. During that time, he shared a list of banned terms that Vince McMahon didn’t want being used on television.

Dave Schilling tweeted out to reveal a list of WWE’s banned words. It turns out that calling Becky Lynch “Becky Two-Belts” was a big no-no. This list also revealed other words that Vince McMahon wanted nixed from his shows.

“Becky Two Belts” was an adlib. The word “belt” was not allowed then, so I assumed Becky would get in trouble. Instead, they sold t-shirts.

Vince McMahon is back in WWE, but he isn’t in a position of creative control anymore. He is positioning the company for a sale, something that they are getting closer to all the time.

We will have to see how WWE’s new owners take control of the banned word list. Obviously, if Saudi Arabia buys WWE, then they will likely drastically alter the things that are allowed on programming.

What’s your take on WWE’s banned word list? Which words would you add or take off the list? Sound off in the comments!
