AEW strives to be an alternative to the product that WWE has been putting out for decades. Tony Khan’s company improved by leaps and bounds in key aspects, but not everything is as well as it should be. Now it appears that AEW programming itself is adhering to a language policy.
One of the biggest differences between WWE and AEW is that AEW has a lot of violent content, which usually involves a lot of blood. The company has received criticism for the same, and they are also known to drop a lot of cuss words.
It was said that AEW was instructed to tone down the amount of swearing they have by Warner Bros Discovery. However, reports then noted that Warner Bros Discovery has no issue with profanity on AEW television.
While speaking on the My World podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett revealed that the promotion follows a language policy, which puts a few restrictions on what talent can say on AEW television.
”We have a language policy at AEW… You have to with network shows.”
That said, Jeff Jarrett didn’t disclose which words talent are banned from saying on live television. Last year, Ace Steel paid fine for swearing on Dynamite and even Saraya got fined for cussing this year. Regardless, AEW will continue to push the envelope as much as it can and that’s all that matters.
