An internal WWE memo from a few years back recently leaked and stated a few things of interest:
* Vince McMahon no longer wants "Granddaddy of them all" using to describe WrestleMania because he feels it makes WrestleMania feel old and dated.

* Nobody can use the phrase "choke" for a submission move. Undertaker's Hell's Gate move was named Triangle submission hold.

* Producer Kevin Dunn stated that announcers can no longer use the phrase "title changes hands."

* Vince banned the use of terms "five star match" and "match of the year." As part of the memo banning those terms, Vince also wanted all announcers to "stop reading the dirt sheets" with the idea that it influences what they say.

* Stephanie McMahon sent a memo for announcers to never use the phrase "the referee didn't see it" when a heel is doing something behind the referees back. She wrote that it makes it seem like the announcers are treating the fans like they are in grade school. Stephanie prefers "the referee's vision was impaired" or "the referee's vision was blocked." Also, never use the word "hatred" or "hate" when describing a feud and the announcers should never say a talent doesn't care about winning a match.

I agree with all points.

The last one is really stupid. Does she know kids watch the shows?

The referee didn't see how title changed hands by the Triangle Submission Choke in the five star match of the year at the Granddaddy of them all.

They write the show, they reserve the right to have their on-screen characters to say/not say what they want.

Why can't they make announcer call moves more often? Stop giving their points of view of the storyline and names moves and what they do. I'm sure more than half of WWE viewers don't even know most moves' names.
