– 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.
