Yesterday, we got a nice -- or maybe not, depending on your perspective -- story from Chris Jericho on his surprise return at the Royal Rumble this past January and today we're getting another nice little look into the inner workings of WWE with this bit of insight from former company wrestler/announcer Matt Striker.
In an interview with The Temple News, Striker revealed that while no words are "banned" necessarily, there are just certain things you don't do. Like calling championship titles "belts". The reason for this will blow your mind.
Here it is:
"No words are banned. There are some phrases [that are] not part of the dialogue, but there are good reasons why. For example, a championship is not a belt. A belt holds up your pants. Someone that doesn't watch wrestling might ask, ‘Why are they fighting over wardrobe accessories?' When you say how you're coming after me for the championship, then it adds importance."
Well that's certainly something.
I'm not sure there's a soul on Earth who would confuse the fact that wrestlers are fighting over a championship title as opposed to an accessory that keeps your pants from falling off your ass, but that's the line.
Your thoughts, Cagesiders?
