That’s on the no list. If there is one thing that makes WWE feel strange at times, it is the long list of things that wrestlers are not allowed to say. I can’t count how many times I have been watching a WWE show and thought “no one talks this way”. Maybe it is due to an over reliance on scripted promos or wrestlers not being great talkers, but there is something strange about it and part of that is due to the dialogue being limited. Now, we have another word on the list.
Last month, several names were released from WWE in the span of a few hours. This included both names on the main roster as well as NXT, with one such name being NXT wrestler Taynara Conti. This came as a bit of a surprise as Conti had shown a lot of potential, only to be let go from the company. Conti has been talking a bit since her release, including mentioning a new word on the banned list.
Conti was interviewed by Ring The Belle earlier this week and mentioned that WWE no longer allows the word “crazy” to be used in promos. During her matches, Conti had been shouting “ARE YOU CRAZY” at her opponents but was told she was not allowed to use the word any longer. There is no word on when the rule came into effect or why the change was made.
It was quite the interview. Check out Conti’s appearance on the show, with quite a few other details revealed:
Opinion: I can see why WWE would not allow the term to be used as it could be seen as offensive to some. It certainly makes more sense than some of the things that WWE does not allow, many of which make little sense and seem to be nothing more than Vince McMahon’s latest whims. Maybe the list can start lightening up a bit, as they are saying “wrestling” again. You know, in the wrestling company.
