Speculation on Reason for ‘Taboo Tuesday’ Trademark
As noted, WWE went to trademark the term “Taboo Tuesday,” which was a pay-per-view in 2004 and 2005, before migrating to Cyber Sunday from 2006-2008. According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the belief is that WWE will be bringing this back to be featured on an episode of SmackDown Live. As seen with the John Cena vs. Shinsuke Nakamura and AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens matches, WWE has been bringing a semi-PPV feel to the Tuesday shows.
Update on Future of ‘Smacking Talk’
Since the popular “Talking Smack” post-SmackDown Live show has now been restricted to just pay-per-views, Daniel Bryan and Renee Young debuted “Smacking Talk” via Tout. The inaugural episode featured Chad Gable, as he was delivered a paternity test to determine if he was the son of Bryan. Although Bryan and Young mentioned that it was the first episode, it appears to be the only, as the Newsletter reported that it was only a one-time thing.
