You might think that calling a WWE match is pretty simple. You watch two guys or two Divas go at it, you talk about what you see, you remind viewers what’s at stake, you see who wins, and then you yell about the outcome of the match. Boom. Done.

It’s unclear whether or not the list is legit, but it certainly feels like it is, because many of the guidelines, which appear to have been created by Vince McMahon himself, sound like they’re designed to make WWE feel more interesting and over the top.
It’s worth noting that it seems as though many of the notes are really old. Some look like they are dated as far back as 2008 or so.
