Thread: WWE Tasteless

We know that WWE has a reputation of being tasteless, and sunday night at Battleground they took things way too far.
My country Holland and the rest of the world is still trying to recover from the MH17 attack/accident, and WWE still had Lana refer to Putin and the situation in Ukraine. Extremely tasteless to me, as they had Lana simply playing that Russian witch, while not showing any sensitivity over the situation.
Maybe it's just me, because I know people who died there, because the world lost 300 innocent people and our country lost (so far known) 193 innocent people, but I think this is just extremely tasteless.

It's the same thing like they did back then when there was war in Irak and Sgt. Slaughter turned on America and praised the Irak. I got to agree with you, this is a way to get a lot of heat, but there's also a line where it's enough. And I agree that they crossed this line tonight!

WWE announced that the statement Lana made had nothing to do with the plane crash.

Second Rusev is Bulgarian (nothing to do with Russia ?!)
Third point is WWE is just once again manipulating their whole "universe".
In case you did not notice, THIS IS PROPAGANDA !
But w/e extremly tasteless like it was already said.
This is sport / entertainment and politics should stay out of the ring.

Well since it got kinda quiet around this topic in public media, here a pretty nice interview with Marie Harf:
If you dont know who Marie Harf is:
I do not want to be the judge in this case. But more and more controversy is coming up. People from a lot of states have been murdered. (Germans too)
I just do not want to believe everything the mainstream media is telling me to believe.
But back to the topic ...
Now WWE is pushing Swagger again with this "We the people" crap and the people start to believe in the crap they are selling and are really chanting "We the people". Just sad.
I know there were previous "We the people" chants but i think they were more likely a credit for the awesome performance Cesaro did back in that times.
Now they chant it because they believe in it. They believe in the USA. They believe Russia is the big bad wolf.
Just sad once again
