• Banned Word Caused Confusion Among Fans On RAW This Week
RAW Tag Team Champions The Street Profits took on The Viking Raiders in a pretty decent match on this week’s RAW.
Erik and Ivar defeated the Champions, but some fans were surprised they didn’t win the Titles, as they were under the impression that it was a Title match.
Dave Meltzer noted on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE is obviously building towards a Title match between the two teams. They couldn’t exactly describe that the Titles weren’t on the line on RAW, as the word “non-title” is banned by the company:
“There is a word that…you’re not supposed to use the word ‘non-title,’ right? Because that’s one of the forbidden words.”
It was noted that “they don’t have a term, they just have to wait until it’s over.”
