WWE toured India last week. The tour featured names such as Roman Reigns, Usos, Darren young, Charlotte etc. The tour was largely a success. However going into last week's live events in New Delhi, India, there were calls by Hindu religious group Aadvanshi Veer Sena and some local wrestlers to protest WWE's arrival, because of a 1998 RAW segment that a news outlet WebIndia dug-up and posted on social media. The Online article featured a video of the RAW segment where Kurt Angle took the Indian flag and wiped his nose with it on WWE TV. The Hindu group demanded WWE apologize for it.

WWE's representative issued the following comments in response:

"This case is about 20-years-ago and we did not deliberately do that. We have a great respect for the country. We are sorry that it happened, but we had no intention of doing it. India is a reputable country and we apologise for this."

Where's Canada's apology after what HBK did to the flag? :rolleyes:

What a pussy move by yet another religious group. Its wrestling. WWE has to apologize about shit from 20 years ago, and people wonder why the product is so cringe and watered down.

Get the fuck over it. So many whiny groups in the world who think they can get what they want by complaining, like the Oscars.

those guys are full of shit, India has one of the biggest set of hypocrites probably only 2nd to the middle east
they always demand apologies and make a huge deal for the most petty of things yet you wouldn't believe the kind of shit that goes on there like child abuse which they you never hear them protesting about
