WWE made a big blunder during WrestleMania 39 Saturday when they apparently used footage from the Auschwitz concentration camp to promote the match between Dominik Mysterio and Rey Mysterio. The company has not commented on the situation publicly, but it has caused some outrage among fans who noticed.
The match between Dominik and Rey had been heavily promoted on TV in the weeks leading up to WrestleMania, with Dominik adopting the character of Prison Dom and harassing his father until he agreed to face him at the event. The blunder occurred during the kick-off show for WrestleMania Saturday, when WWE used footage from Auschwitz to hype the match.
This mistake has drawn criticism from many people, with some calling it insensitive and offensive. It’s not clear how the mistake occurred or who was responsible but it’s likely that WWE officials will be unhappy about the situation.
Despite the blunder, WrestleMania 39 Saturday featured a number of exciting matches and moments. Charlotte Flair defended her title against Rhea Ripley, Logan Paul faced Seth Rollins, and Pat McAfee made a surprise return to compete against The Miz. The main event saw Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens win the Undisputed Tag Titles in an emotional match against The Usos.
WrestleMania 39 Sunday promises to be just as exciting, with matches such as Gunther vs. Sheamus vs. Drew McIntyre, Edge vs. Finn Balor, and Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes. Despite the blunder during Night 1, fans are still eagerly anticipating the second night of WWE’s biggest event of the year.
