WWE issues statement over Charlotte/Paige angle from Raw

WWE issued a short statement on the use of Reid Flair’s name during the Monday Night Raw angle between Paige and Charlotte which got a ton of negative responses.

“Subject matter this personal is only approved as a result of the strong advocacy of the talent themselves. Notwithstanding that, WWE is ultimately responsible for what airs in its programming,” the statement read.

The segment involved Charlotte mentioning her late brother Reid and how she will keep on fighting like the rest of her family did which was the cue for Paige to tell Charlotte that her baby brother didn’t have much fight in him.

PWInsider.com reports that Charlotte was not forced into saying anything and the whole thing was the subject of long discussions during the day leading up to the show between the creative team and those involved in the segment. The Divas champion was well aware what was coming and was okay with the whole thing as it was her who suggested the original idea in the first place.

Both her parents were not happy that WWE chose to go that route and her mother Beth slammed the company while Ric said that he cried when he watched the segment and heard his son’s name.
