WWE issues statement on Lana’s promo at Battleground

WWE issued the following statement earlier today concerning the mainstream media’s negative reaction to Lana’s promo at last night’s WWE Battleground PPV referencing the Malaysia Airlines tragedy in Ukraine:

“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.”
