Watch your mouth. WWE has long since been a PG company and while there are some drawbacks to this, it has done wonders for them in the realm of advertising. A lot of companies are not going to want any part of what WWE was doing in the Attitude Era but are cool with what they are doing in modern times. WWE can still be a bit edgy at times though and that was the case again this year.
One of the more interesting stories that WWE has been presenting over the last few years is the Firefly Fun House. The series of vignettes are meant to show a look inside Bray Wyatt’s warped and evil mind, which is not a place many want to go. Alexa Bliss wants to go there and has become the only regular human guest. Bliss has been around for a few weeks now but this week’s topped them all.
You might want to cover your ears. Check out the latest Firefly Fun House:
This week on Monday Night Raw, Bliss and Wyatt took part in another edition of the Firefly Fun House, during which Bliss got into an argument with Abby The Witch, who swore twice. During the segment. Abby said “Randy Orton can go f*** himself” and later said the same to Bliss. At the end of the segment, Bliss displayed the extent of the Fiend’s evil influence, promoting Wyatt to say “Oh s***!.” All three instances were censored, though this is one of the only instances of f*** being used in any form in the history of WWE television.
Opinion: You really can tell how much television as well as WWE have changed in recent years. At one point it was rare for anyone to come close to saying anything like this on television and now it is weird for them not to. It isn’t like anything was actually heard here, and in a way that made it more interesting. It was certainly more worthy given what Bliss was doing, but I was more surprised to see anything close to it, and in a nice way.
