According to my own scale I’ve been watching wrestling “a lot”. I don’t think it was a big deal that Lana referenced “current events” at Battleground, namely because that’s all she said. America falsely accused Russia for current events. The whole gimmick kind of rides the line of goofy wrestling fun/ parodying the start of World War 3, so you had to know a situation like this would pop up sooner or later. While I’m not in love with Rusev (Lana on the other hand…), I’m glad that they’re not pulling the rug out from under him like Muhammad Hassan way back in 2005. What a backwards gimmick that was! Let’s get people to boo the victims of racial stereotyping! His entrance music was cool though.
