Pat McAfee Mocks Joe Biden On Smackdown

Pat McAfee asked if WWE fans were chanting ‘Let’s Go Brandon’ when they chanted ‘Let’s Go Brock’ for Brock Lesnar during Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman’s promo on Smackdown. The chant and phrase is used by people to criticize U.S. President Joe Biden, as a reporter at a NASCAR event a couple months ago said the fans were chanting ‘let’s go Brandon’ when they were chanting ‘f*** Joe Biden.”



WWE has a list of words that they prohibit the commentators from mentioning during the on-air shows. Reports emerged that the name of the city Raleigh was banned. During the entire three hours on RAW last week, they did not mention the city’s name.

WWE denies the ban

WWE’s current list of banned words includes, “Blood, choke, belt, strap, diva, head shot, trauma, kayfabe, Mofos, house show, DQ, The Anti-Diva, spinal injuries, victim, violence, violent, wrestling, wrestlers, WWF, wifebeater, curb stomp, phrases including the word ‘push’ and ‘being over,’ babyface, heel, job, jobber, card, strangle, kill and murder.” Interestingly enough, Goldberg used “kill” in his promo directed at Bobby Lashley on Raw this week.

During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that a newspaper in Raleigh was trying to do a story about WWE banning their city’s name. When they contacted Vince McMahon’s company about this ban they received a denial.

“The Raleigh newspaper was gonna do a story that they weren’t allowed to use the term Raleigh. So, they call up WWE and ask ‘is it true that you told the announcers that they aren’t allowed to use the word Raleigh?’ They’re like, ‘IT IS NOT TRUE,’ and then the guy comes to me and says, ‘They said it’s not true.’”

“I’m like, ‘They were on for three hours and never said it once and they mention the name of the city they’re in multiple times in every show. Common sense, yes they were not allowed to use the word Raleigh, they kept using North Carolina state instead in its presence.’ Even Big E in his entrance he always mentions the town and he did not say Raleigh, so yes, they could not say Raleigh. So yeah, if they say it didn’t happen, it didn’t happen. Just like that pay-per-view where the commentary kept bleeding in multiple languages, so if they say it didn’t happen, it didn’t happen no matter what you or I may have heard, that’s just how it is. That’s how it is today.”
