WWE reportedly frustrated with FOX censoring multiple fan chants and gestures during Smackdown

As seen during the June 28th 2024 edition of WWE Smackdown, there were multiple instances where the FOX network censored fan chants and gestures. At several points during the show, either the audio was muted or the screen got blacked out for several seconds. There was controversy earlier this year over FOX censoring The Rock on Smackdown.

According to Fightful.com, there was frustration by several WWE sources spoken to over the censorship. One longtime WWE talent gave the following statement to the outlet…

“It’s a chore to watch sometimes. I understand censoring ‘f*ck the Pacers,’ but it feels like every segment is edited and it makes us look like it’s our production.”
