WWE Apologizes To Fans In India For Controversial Segment Involving Kurt Angle From 1998

Posted By: Ben Kerin on Jan 18, 2016

WWE has issued an apology to Indian wrestling fans for a segment in 1998 where Kurt Angle took the Indian flag and wiped his nose with it on WWE TV.

WWE International President Gerrit Meier issued the following apology via WebIndia

"This case is about 20-years-ago and we did not deliberately did 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."

The apology was reportedly issued following protests at recent WWE live events in New Delhi, India by Hindu group Aadvanshi Veer Sena and some local wrestlers.
