Yet another addition to the long and somewhat infamous list of Vince McMahon banned terms has been revealed.
From “belt” to “wrestler” to “hospital”, McMahon has outright banned certain words and phrases from being said on WWE TV, seemingly just because he can.
Now, another of his “hated” terms has been revealed, this time by Jim Cornette, who of course worked closely with McMahon for a number of years.
On the latest Jim Cornette Experience podcast, while discussing the Night of Champions match between Gunther and Mustafa Ali, not only did Cornette reiterate his love for Gunther calling him the “perfect wrestler”, he also brought up the phrase to “catch a quick one”, meaning for someone to score a lucky flash pinfall win over someone else.
So for example, if Ali was going to beat Gunther with a roll-up, you could say Ali was going to “catch a quick one”.
“Vince hates that – that’s another Vince McMahon banned term.
“In the old days, when you weren’t completely sure that guys were gonna agree to going along with doing a job (losing a match), the booker or whoever was doing the finish would go up to the f**king guy and he’d say, ‘Look, you take most of the match, boom boom boom, get some f**king steam on him, whatever, he’ll make a comeback and then let him catch a quick one. Just catch a quick one’.
“Which means roll you up, or some little quick pin 1-2-3 and you’re fine. And that’s kind of the way that you would talk a guy into it if he was reticent.
“And Vince McMahon hates that. ‘Catch a quick one, that’s bulls**t’. (Laughs).”

Obviously Ali didn’t do that, and Gunther won the match as expected to retain the Intercontinental Championship.
On last night’s episode of Raw, it seemed Matt Riddle was set up as Gunther’s next challenger as the Austrian looks to continue his reign that, as of May 30, sits at 354 days, eyeing up the 414-day reign of Randy Savage, and the all-time record 454-day reign of the Honky Tonk Man.
