Last night on WWE Battleground PPV, Lana cut a promo on behalf of Rusev.

It has caused a media backlash in some circles, including The NY Post as well as Washington Post

WWE issued this statement on the issue:
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.

This is a video of the promo
