"Wrestling" Naughty Word

Check out this article on WWE.com, notable for Jeff saying that Matt and him share Pearl Jam and wrestling in common, and WWE.com actually editing the word out and instead using [sports entertainment]. How sad.

But in paragraph four, the author parenthetically adds in "wrestling." So there was no conscious aversion, at least in this case, to avoid "wrestling". He just used the two terms interchangeably.

A lack of continuity and professionalism at WWE.com? NEVER!!!! ;)

Hope you're well, Todd.

He probably used a curse word before wrestling. The author could have cut the curse word out of the sentence altogether, but that would have made far too much sense.

Maybe instead of "[sports entertainment]" it originally said something zany such as "soliciting sex".
