WWE issued a statement earlier this evening about Monday night's controversial angle between Charlotte and Paige, where Charlotte's deceased brother Reid was brought up during the main event segment. WWE accepted responsibility for the angle.
It was speculated earlier that the WWE would insist that Charlotte herself had pushed for the angle, which ended up not being the case. Conrad Thompson, who co-hosts Ric Flair's Wooo! Nation on the CBS Radio Play.it podcast network told us that Charlotte absolutely didn't come up with the angle.
"The reports that Charlotte was the one who came up with the idea to get heat using her brother's death are 100% false," Conrad said.
