Vince McMahon bans yet another term from WWE television

WWE CEO Vince McMahon may have banned another word from being used in WWE programming.

McMahon is known for being somewhat particular about certain terms, words and phrases used in his television shows. Instead of “wrestler” Vince prefers the term “superstar”; Instead of “belt”, WWE refers to its awards as “championship title”.

Additionally, pay-per-views are now known exclusively as premium live events, and the company chooses to label the wrestling industry as a whole “sports entertainment.” WWE’s announcers also have strict rules they must abide by under the watchful eye of Mr. McMahon.

On a recent episode of The Bryan and Vinny Show, the hosts recapitulated RAW when Bryan Alvarez made a casual comment about an announcer correcting himself when he used the term “attack.” This prompted Alvarez to question whether the word was banned:

“I think it was Seth Rollins who attacked Cody. He says: “Seth Rollins attacked Cody. Sorry, offended.” And they just kept going. I thought that was damn funny. And I went back and listened to it again. And he sure as hell says, “Seth Rollins attacked Cody. Sorry I attacked Cody.” And then he just keeps going and I was like, is that damn word forbidden?” Alvarez said. (H/T: WrestlingNewsCo)

Why would Vince McMahon ban the word “attack”?

While there’s no official confirmation as to whether or not the word is banned, Alvarez has a reason behind Vince McMahon’s alleged move.

Speaking to an apparent source inside the company, Alvarez suggested that the ongoing situation between Russia and Ukraine could be the reason. The word “attacked” could potentially be used in its place in the future:

“I asked someone there and unofficially they also believe that you can’t say the word ‘attack’ anymore and I don’t even want to say that because it’s going to end up as a story, but you know they basically said how ‘Russia attacked’ Ukraine, so let’s not use the word attacked. Now you must say attacked.’ I thought what?!” Alvarez added.

It will be interesting to see if there is any truth to Alvarez’s speculation and if WWE drops the term altogether. You can read more about WWE CEO Vince McMahon by clicking here.
