WWE has issued an apology regarding Auschwitz footage being depicted in a promotional video that ran during WrestleMania 39.

During the entrance for Dominik Mysterio on night one of WrestleMania, footage of Dominik inside of a prison was accompanied by an image of the Auschwitz concentration camp.

During the Holocaust, over one million people were killed at the concentration camp.

WWE has since removed the footage from the entrance presentation for Dominik and replaced it with generic footage.

The controversy was called out by the Auschwitz Memorial outlet

A WWE spokesperson has issued an apology to the Washington Post for the error:

We had no knowledge of what was depicted. As soon as we learned, it was removed immediately.

To learn more about the Auschwitz atrocities, you can seek out education from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
