NJPW President Bans English Language Swearing & Middle Finger Usage

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 08/09/18


According to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, NJPW President Harold Meij has banned English language swearing and middle finger usage from the product. This was done in an attempt to help in marketing the product overseas. The feeling is that if they want more international sponsors, that things like the swearing in the Juice Robinson promos and heavy swearing in-ring were going to have to go. Those who have been swearing in English in their promos were privately spoken to and asked as best they can to clean up their promos. This is because the expansion of sponsorships in new markets will require a product suitable for all ages.
