Kurt explained that it is a norm to greet back by saying ‘you are welcome,’ when someone says a ‘thank you.’ But, in the arena of professional wrestling a thank you should not be greeted back by saying you are welcome. The host further said that be it thank you or no thank you one should not say you’re welcome.

“You know, when you say thank you, and the person says, you’re welcome. That’s usually the proper way to say it. But in pro wrestling, when you say thank you, the other person is supposed to say thank you back. So it’s like, ‘thank you,’ ‘No, thank you.’ You don’t say you’re welcome,” said Kurt.

He also narrated an incident. An incident where the wrestler revealed how he was told by one of the wrestlers that he was been banned for greeting back you are welcome. The wrestler had replied for a thank you from the chief of WWE. This did not go well with Vince McMahon and thus resulting in a ban for a month.

“I was told one time a wrestler told Vince, Vince said, ‘Hey, thank you for the match tonight.’ He said, ‘You’re welcome. Vince actually took him off the roster for about a month. And suspended him for a month because he didn’t say thank you, he said, ‘You’re welcome.’”
