dsrchris 190 Posted July 21, 2014 Share Posted July 21, 2014 Lana and Rusev have made the news again, and once again it's not casting them in the most favourable light: Two Russian-themed WWE wrestling characters have sparked outrage by incorporating the Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 disaster into their act. In a show on Saturday 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. Source: DailyMail.co.uk Granted this is just the Daily Mail spewing their usual rhetoric and nonsense, but there is a conversation to be had here. Are WWE going to far by bringing up the MH17 disaster just to get cheap heat on Lana and Rusev? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
