You can’t really blame Corey Graves for dropping the s-bomb on last night’s episode of Raw when Braun Strowman tackled Bobby Lashley through the LED screens.
It was an awesome moment (slightly marred by the over-use of sparks and bangs), and the whole crowd went completely insane for the spot.
Corey couldn’t help himself and shouted “Holy S**t”, something WWE has since bleeped out of replays. WWE is still very much PG and therefore curse words are banned…unless you’re calling someone a bitch.

Graves has since acknowledged the slip of the tongue on Twitter, and joked about needing to start a GoFundMe page to raise funds for the imminent fine.
There were a lot of people who assumed that the slip of the tongue was deliberate, and that it was all a part of Paul Heyman becoming the Executive Director of the show, but given the bleeping in replays, it seems that it was just a mistake and there are no plans to have commentators cursing regularly.
