• Reason Behind Cody Rhodes Using Banned Words On WWE TV On Last Night’s RAW
Cody Rhodes appeared on Miz TV in the opening segment of last night’s RAW.
Miz took a shot at Cody and said he wouldn’t be who he is today without his father Dusty Rhodes. Miz says that if Cody wasn’t the grandson of a plumber – he’d be a real plumber.
Cody said Miz hasn’t changed in 6 years at all, but he has.
Cody said he’s back to win the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship belt. Miz reminded Cody that it’s a Title, a belt holds up pants.
Cody then mentioned WWE wrestlers and Miz reminded him of WWE terminology again and said it’s ‘Superstars’.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Cody being booked to use banned WWE words ‘belt’ and ‘wrestlers’ is a part of his character:
“This is all scripted. His gimmick, apparently, is that he gets to say the words that nobody else gets to say and gets corrected.”
