WWE has just released the following statement concerning John Bradshaw Layfield's "Nazi Salute" from the 6/5 Smackdown brand show in Munich
"WWE and John Layfield deeply regret Mr. Layfield's actions in the ring at our event in Munich, and apologize if it has offended or upset our fans.
Mr. Layfield has been reprimanded for his actions."
From what has been said, WWE management in Munich basically just told him not to do it again and there was nothing else done about it at that time. He
wasn't even fined at the time.
But once the story broke in the wrestling media, it became a public matter and WWE had to react. WWE has already felt some heat over Bradshaw's
actions from some of the people that they do business with. The issue has been raised at CNBC, where Bradshaw works as an on-air analyst, and it would
not be surprising to see something arise from that situation.
