AEW is known for several things, including their intense in-ring action. They are also a pro wrestling company that lets their talent swear lot more than the competition. That being said, they must get certain things approved.

There was a time in AEW’s history when they were dropping multiple S-Bombs per hour. Saraya said “tw*t” on television, and she was fined for it. Tony Schaivone also got in on the fun, but he dropped a different profanity.

In the past, Tony Schavone has expressed his feelings about heels by calling them choice words, including “prick.” It seems that word needed special approval from Warner Bros Discovery before he could break that one out.

During his What Happened When podcast, Tony Schiavone opened up a bit about calling MJF a “prick” on AEW television. Warner Bros Discovery actually had to give him a green light to use that word on their program, and thankfully they did just that for AEW Dynamite in Washington.


“The first time I said prick, I made sure I got it approved by the Warner Bros. people who were there. It was for a show in Washington.”

There are a lot of words that people can use to describe MJF, including the one that Tony Schiavone picked for him. That being said, MJF is also known to drop a few dirty words on Tony Khan’s television show.

MJF will defend the AEW World Title at Double or Nothing on May 28th in a four-way pillars match. He will have quite a match against him as Darby Allin, Jungle Boy, and Sammy Guevara all try to topple him for the time. The champion doesn’t even need to be pinned to lose his title in Las Vegas.

We will have full coverage of AEW Double or Nothing, and everything else from the entire pro wrestling world right here at Ringside News. Please stay tuned for all the best updates in the business.
