The latest Wrestling Observer newsletter, in the latest Raw report, recaps the Highlight Reel segment from Raw with Bray Wyatt and noted some slow changes within WWE with blood and some of the wording used on the show. As noted, the segment that was shot backstage with Wyatt giving Jericho the Sister Abigail into a locker was actually shot the night before since Jericho was in Los Angeles that day. The interesting thing about that is that WWE has had an anti-blood policy in recent years but for the angle with Wyatt and Jericho they used stage blood to show Jericho’s ear bleeding and help sell the angle. They’re also using the word “bitch” more and this week they used it during the first hour.
It’s something to keep an eye on because it’s definitely a shift in their philosophy.
