• Roman Reigns Used A Previously Banned Word On Last Night’s SmackDown
When Vince McMahon was running WWE, severals words were banned from being used on television.
However, with Triple H being the new Head Of Creative, WWE Superstars are now able to use a lot of those unbanned words.
‘Wrestler’ and ‘Wrestling’ recently got unbanned. Also, WWE Stars can now say ‘Hospital’ instead of ‘Local Medical Facility’.
On last night’s SmackDown, Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns addressed his victory over Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam 2022.
Reigns said he hates Lesnar because The Beast put Paul Heyman in the Hospital after hitting the ‘Wise Man’ with an F5 through the announce table.
Fans are already making memes about this:
