• Chris Jericho Reveals Vince McMahon’s Reaction To People Using WWE’s Banned Terms
During a recent edition of Talk is Jericho podcast with WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page as special guest, Chris Jericho called DDP Yoga just Yoga and this led to DDP correct him.
This reminded Jericho of Vince McMahon, who corrects people the same way if someone uses a banned WWE word.
Below is what Jericho said about banned WWE words:
“‘Hey Vince, I don’t know if I should lose the belt.’ (Imitates McMahon) ‘The what?’ ‘Sorry, the title.’ You couldn’t say ‘belt’ because a belt is what you use to hold up your pants.
You couldn’t say ‘fans’ because it’s the ‘WWE Universe’. And never say ‘marks’ because (imitates McMahon) ‘they’re not marks – they’re our fans!’
And the other one is the ‘job’. (Imitates McMahon) ‘Uh uh. We do favors, not jobs.’ The Vince verbiage!”
