* On the Februaury 1, 2016 edition of RAW, Wrestling/TheNewDay were cutting a promo about their opponents Wrestling/DeanAmbrose and Wrestling/RomanReigns. At one point, they made an off-hand mention of the swathes of {{Slash}} FanFiction with the two as a couple that's on the Internet (going as far as to name-drop their PortmanteauCoupleName "Ambreigns"). While they (thankfully) did not go into detail, mentioning it all was enough for most fans to declare it more explicit and non-PG than anything ''Wrestling/TheRock'' (who utterly destroys the radar whenever he makes an appearance) has said ever since he returned.

** To make matters worse, Wrestling/KofiKingston didn't even know what his partners were talking about with that. [[https://twitter.com/TrueKofi/status/694404589832048640 He's sorry he asked.]]

* On the September 29 edition of ''Raw,'' after Wrestling/SethRollins got his Money in the Bank briefcase back from Wrestling/DeanAmbrose (who mentioned he keeps some [[NoodleIncident sick stuff]] in there), everybody in Wrestling/TheAuthority is standing around arguing about the tag team main event Wrestling/TripleH just booked when they hear a buzzing. After checking and realizing it's nobody's phone, they realize the vibrating sound is coming from the briefcase. Rollins quickly snatches it up and snaps, "It's an electric razor!" Rollins has a full beard, which at the very least means it's not his face he's shaving with that thing.

** Less subtly Becky had already said something in a promo "The B of PCB can be a real B when she wants to."

* For a good part of 2015, WWE's Wrestling/{{Paige}} was in a stable with Wrestling/{{Charlotte}} and Wrestling/BeckyLynch called "Team PCB"... eventually, after WWE realized that their original team name [[NamesTheSame was already taken... by a porn website.]] [[FailedASpotCheck Whoops.]] In any event, Paige turns her back on Charlotte and Becky and begins competing against them. At one point after beating Becky in a match and being interviewed by Renee Young, she says something to the effect of, "I've just beaten the 'B' of Team PCB..." (turning around a similar wordplay used by Becky herself earlier) "...now, all that's left is the 'C'." Now, 'B' and 'C' are obviously initials for Becky and Charlotte, as far as the ten-year-old viewer is aware. Adult viewers will catch on to the double meaning pretty quickly - particularly Paige's stress on the [[CountryMatters second one.]]

* Wrestling/AliciaFox and Melina actually ''kissed'' in front of a PG audience. Ditto for Wrestling/WilliamRegal and Wrestling/ZackRyder, though this was PlayedForLaughs. Similarly, on the 2009 ChristmasEpisode of Raw, December 22, 2009, guest host [[UsefulNotes/MLBTeams New York Yankees outfielder Johnny Damon]] found himself under the mistletoe with wrestling's all-time DrillSergeantNasty Wrestling/SgtSlaughter, who said, with a completely straight face though in a more subdued tone, "Don't ask don't tell."

* The 6/11/12 episode of RAW saw the return of [[Wrestling/VinceMcMahon Vince [=McMahon=]]], who (among other things) made fun of Daniel Bryan's short ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}}'' match by telling him backstage, "...I don't think I've ever finished ''anything'' in 18 seconds." To cap it off, he then says that he'll leave Bryan to "think" about what that means...at which point the DoubleEntendre registers and Bryan does a DoubleTake.

* [[Wrestling/BrodieLee Luke Harper]] of Wrestling/{{The Wyatt Family}} wears a black handkerchief in his back pocket. In the outdated handkerchief code used by the gay community, this identified one as a BDSM top. It isn't entirely clear whether the use is deliberate or if WWE isn't aware of the handkerchief code, but it does add another layer of creepy to Harper's creepy hillbilly gimmick.

* The 3/9/15 RAW ended with a handicap match between Wrestling/RomanReigns and the [[Wrestling/TheAuthority Authority]] team of Wrestling/RandyOrton and Wrestling/SethRollins (keep in mind, Orton had just returned, and last we saw of him, he was getting his head curbstomped into steel stairs). Seth, who is getting his ass kicked by Reigns a la RickyMorton, tries to tag in Orton, who decides this is the perfect moment to let Seth know that he's 'number one' on Orton's hit list. Either by a camera screw-up or the cameraman not knowing this was coming, Orton's [[Wrestling/StoneColdSteveAustin Austin-]]esque [[FlippingTheBird hand gesture]] made it onto PG programming unblurred for a second before the cameraman suddenly panned down and they cut to another camera - which had a fan in the first row imitating the gesture enthusiastically. For added hilarity, MichaelCole is forced to acknowledge the gesture without actually acknowledging it, referencing Orton's "emphatic statement." Of course, an ass-kicking ensued a few seconds later.
