Vince McMahon Makes Changes To WWE SmackDown

According to PWInsider Elite, Vince McMahon is not in Portland for tonight’s WWE SmackDown show, but he did review the creative plans for the program remotely. McMahon made minor changes to the original script, but no major changes were made.



WWE has released a statement apologizing for the use of Auschwitz footage in a promotional video that aired during WrestleMania 39. The footage was shown during the entrance for wrestler Dominik Mysterio on the first night of the event. It featured footage of Dominik in a prison along with an image of the Auschwitz concentration camp, where over one million people were killed during the Holocaust.

The fact that Auschwitz image was used to promote a WWE match is hard to call “an editing mistake”. Exploiting the site that became a symbol of enormous human tragedy is shameless and insults the memory of all victims of Auschwitz.

Following criticism from the Auschwitz Memorial outlet, WWE removed the footage and replaced it with generic footage. A spokesperson for WWE has since apologized for the error, stating that they were not aware of the content that was being depicted and that it was removed as soon as they became aware of it. The spokesperson made the statement to the Washington Post.

A WWE spokesperson has issued an apology to the Washington Post for the error:

We had no knowledge of what was depicted. As soon as we learned, it was removed immediately.
