UK Website Claims “Outrage” Over Lana’s Battleground Promo

lanaUK website The Daily Mail has covered Lana’s Battleground promo last night, citing her line “You blame Russia for current events?” as sparking outrage in light of the recent Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 disaster.

The following is an article excerpt:

In a show last night, the characters ‘Lana’ and ‘Alexander Rusev’ launched into an anti-American rant in which they made reference to the flight MH17 being shot down and hailed Russian president Vladimir Putin for ‘making fools’ out of the U.S..

The Rusev and Lana roles often use Cold War-style rhetoric as part of their act, but their mention of last week’s MH17 disaster, in which 298 people died, has shocked the wrestling community.
