Crowd at WWE PC told not to use the F-bomb during live broadcast chants

As you noticed last night on NXT during the opening segment, a lot of muting was done on the USA Network as the crowd was chanting “F*ck you Melo” at Carmelo Hayes.

The chants continued until Hayes, now playing a major heel, said “Not yet” and left the ring.

Following the segment as NXT went to its intro with a recap from the Vengeance Day premium live event, production staff informed the crowd to stop using the F-bomb for the live broadcast as it could present problems.

The crowd largely behaved when Carmelo Hayes showed up later in the broadcast, tricking – pun intended – that Trick Williams was coming at him, something that Shawn Michaels used on Bret Hart when they were in Calgary once years after the Montreal Screwjob.
