WWE Issues Statement on Lana’s Promo at the Battleground Pay-Per-View

– WWE issued the following statement on Lana’s promo at WWE Battleground:

“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 comes following online reaction that Lana’s comments were insensitive – see our report on this here.

    So what was it referencing then? It was referencing something specific, yet they fail to say exactly what it was because they know they are lying now.
