Leaked List Of WWE Banned Words For Promotional Partners

A full list of banned words that WWE sent out to promotional partners for WrestleMania 36 has been revealed.

Fightful Select obtained documents that included the list as well as a number of other instructions for the partners.

Instructions included “not to reply to fans in the comments”, “not to speculate on rumors or future storylines”, “to always represent WWE and talent in a positive light”, and to “be sensitive of the language used and how it may be interpreted by dirt sheets”.

Here’s the list of banned terms that was included:

  • Blood
  • Choke
  • Belt
  • Strap
  • Diva
  • Head shot
  • Trauma
  • Kayfabe
  • Mofos

It was added that exceptions can be made when quoting wrestlers (sorry, Superstars) and company executives.

There was also some other general advice, such as to not encourage violence between fans, and not to use terms that WWE doesn’t have endorsement rights to (like Pedigree and Spear).
