News on WWE's Tag Team "Eliminator"; Rumor on Why WWE Referenced TNA on Raw
November 26, 2020
— WWE commentators avoided calling the tag team competition that began yesterday on Raw a “tournament” instead being told to call it an “eliminator.” The guess is that “tournament” is again another word – much like “draft”, “briefcase” and “belt” that WWE CEO Vince McMahon dislikes and bans being used on TV.
— In another bit of a quirky Vince McMahon tidbit, some are speculating that the reason WWE finally went ahead and mentioned “TNA” on their programming is because technically TNA doesn’t exist anymore as the promotion was rebranded as Impact Wrestling last year. Prior to yesterday, mentioning TNA in any capacity was reportedly banned by McMahon.
