Family in India blames WWE for teenage son’s death

A family in Kolkata, India, is blaming WWE for the death of their son after the 14 year old was found dead with a rope tied around his neck.

“He was watching the WWE and aping a karate move. He had climbed a chair and tied one end of the belt to the window. His mother had gone to the toilet at that time. When she came back, she saw him lying on the floor with the rope tied in a knot around his neck,” said a relative of the family according to a story on NewKerala.com. The same relative said the boy was a big WWE fan “so he was emulating the move.”

WWE, while sorry for the teenager’s death, disassociated themselves completely from the story.

“While WWE offers its condolences to Agnidev Dutta’s family, he could not have been imitating a WWE manoeuvre because tying a rope or anything around one’s neck doesn’t relate to anything seen on WWE programming,” said WWE SVP of Marketing and Communications Brian Flinn in an emailed statement.
