Or makes you roll your eyes at them.

For me it's calling the wrestlers 'superstars' and not wrestlers. It's just stupid.

Not really making me laugh, but sure makes me change the channel away from it...

Cena vs. Orton.

Doesn't matter if it's in tag matches.

I. don't. want. to. see. it. anymore.

The buzzwords are the funniest thing.  "WWE Universe" instead of fans and other incredibly awkward things that Vince makes everyone say that he really, truly believes makes WWE a branding leader, and instead just makes everyone sound like a huge douche. 

Also, having to use full names instead of pronouns.  You can never say "he", it's always "John Cena".  Cole has even joked about it on-air when other announcers forget.  And if someone is booking a match with the 4 guys in the ring, they have to mention each person by their full name and can't just say "You all are fucking wrestling."  It actually becomes more pronounced when you see TNA not follow these rules and just talk like normal people.

Do they use the word "wrestle" at all anymore?

Bad comedy that only Kevin Dunn and Vince think is funny.

The last time they used it was as part of an angle when CM Punk was making fun of them for not using it.  Daniel Bryan might have brought it up a time or two as well.  It's basically a gimmick at this point.  A couple of guys "wrestle", everyone else is an entertainer.

I hear this from smart marks and indy wrestlers all the time about it not being wrestling anymore.  It was always entertainment.  Yes there were guys who could and would wrestle and they bored the fuck out of me.  The Sheik, Abdullah the Butcher, Dick the Bruiser, Kamala, Bruno Sammartino (as much as he would never admit it) , Pampero Firpo, Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan and the list goes on were huge stars and didn't wrestle, they brawled or relied on gimmick or charisma to entertain the fans with being fuckin Lou Thes or Dory funk Jr and putting the snooze on the fans.  I don't watch the product because I am not interested in what they are doing b  not because they lack actual wrestling

Things that you know are going to vanish in a very short period of time, but get pushed to the moon pro tem. Not wrestlers, but things like Icopro or Tout.

I guess the thing that turns me off the most is the constant tongue-in-cheek announcing by Cole and JBL. It's just douche-chilling-bad. I can't listen to JBL for more than a minute. There's no semblance of realism or sport; it's devolved into a snarkfest one-upsmanship with everyone at the table, in the ring and behind the curtain.

Besides that, I've mentioned this before, but my number one pet peeve is that bullshit zoom-in with the camera and then zoom-back out super fast upon impact of a big move in the ring. That is annoying as all fuck. It's something you probably wouldn't notice unless you watch a lot of old stuff like me and then occasionally once in a blue moon turn on Raw. Just brutal. Hire the old World Class camera dudes or Jackie Crockett and knock off the cute shit. The shaking camera was passé with ECW 15 years ago.

When ECW was around, they fucking called them "Extremists".  That's 10X worse

'Sports Entertainment' is another WWE-exclusive and it's just bad

'Divas' is another WWE-word. I just don't hear it used anywhere else.

The fact that the announcers (especially Cole) refer to Kane as "Corporate Kane" seemingly non-stop.
