That’s a bit too far. One of the most infamous changes in WWE history was the shift towards a PG style. This has created quite a bit of backlash from fans, but at the same time it has brought WWE a whole lot of money and opportunities, as more companies are interested in working with them. It does mean that some changes have to be made at times though, which was briefly the case this weekend.

The video feed went dark for a few seconds during the Rhea Ripley vs. Charlotte match at Money in the Bank over the weekend. According to, the video cut out due to Charlotte crotch chopping and flipping off the crowd due to their WE WANT BECKY chants. The chants began at the start of the match and were acknowledged by commentary. Becky Lynch did not appear during the show.

It was a heck of a match anyway. Check out the match, what happened later, and Lynch vs. Charlotte:

Opinion: I know it’s annoying and you could argue unnecessary, but if this is what it takes to keep WWE’s money people happy, that is what they are going to do. WWE has become a lot bigger and more marketable now that they do not show things like this, even if they are hardly things that most fans are going to care about. The match more than made up for it and it isn’t like this is going to matter in the end.
