Re: AEW Issues Statement Regarding Cody's Participation In AAA TripleMania XXVII Post-Match Chant
Puto has several meansings. The direct translation is literally "fucking". It can be used as an insult to homosexuals, but most of the time it isn't used in that context. Most of the time it's used as an insult to cowards and traitors. I would say that the closest word we have in the US is Cocksucker. And just like Cocksucker, it can have a homophobic meaning, but is often used as a general insult. I suppose it could be close to Mother Fucker as well, which also has a double meaning, but is used as a general insult.
I think the context in which it's used during matches is to call someone a coward.
