Official WWE statement regarding Charlotte & Paige promo

WWE has issued an official statement to the wrestling media on Thursday regarding the controversial promo on RAW this past Monday night involving WWE Divas Champion Charlotte and Paige where the passing of Charlotte’s brother Reid was used.

“Subject matter this personal is only approved as a result of the strong advocacy of the talent themselves.  Notwithstanding that, WWE is ultimately responsible for what airs in its programming.”

As reported earlier this week, Ric Flair noted on his podcast that he was not given a heads up about WWE using Reid in the promo adding, “I never heard a word about it. I started crying while I was watching. Nobody called me and nobody has called me today. That would indicate that they just assume that was good.”
