WWE issues statement over the Lana and Rusev promo

Following the negative publicity that the company has received from International media outlets regarding the Lana and Rusev segment and the wording used in the promo at the Battleground pay-per-view, WWE issued a statement today defending its angle.

“Last night’s segment during WWE’s Battleground event was in no way referring to the Malaysia Airlines tragedy. The storyline with characters Rusev and Lana has been a part of WWE programming for more than 3 months. WWE apologizes to anyone who misunderstood last night’s segment and was offended,” the statement reads.

The statement doesn’t sound like WWE is going to put a stop to the angle regardless of what is going on in the region at the moment.
