WWE issues reparation ‘to a Russian people’ after The Big Show ripped down …
September 30, 2014 - WWE
If you’re not informed with Rusev, he’s an anti-American beast billed as Russian favourite who has been annihilating scarcely each competition he’s faced given ripping onto a stage in April. Before scarcely each match, his partner Lana will broach a debate derisive Americans and praising Russian boss Vladimir Putin. The gimmick was widely criticized when Lana referenced a Malaysian Airlines tragedy in July, and a WWE has been walking a excellent line with a duo.
Rusev didn’t combat on Monday Night Raw yesterday, though he still took a ring to call out The Big Show. After Rusev’s signature hulk Russian dwindle was unfurled over a ring, The Big Show came out to respond, and when Rusev ran away, Big Show ripped down a flag.
The WWE released a brief reparation for a occurrence Tuesday.
“We during WWE would like to apologize to a Russian people for a occurrence on Monday Night Raw that could have been construed as disregard for their nation’s flag.”
