Lars Sullivan makes only a brief backstage appearance on SmackDown

On the same day he was fined and sent to sensitivity training by WWE, Lars Sullivan made an appearance on this week’s episode of SmackDown.

Prior to the night’s main event, Sullivan was booked for a backstage interview segment with Kayla Braxton. Before uttering a word, WWE cued up a video package hyping up Sullivan’s recent path of main roster destruction.

When SmackDown cameras came back from the video, Sullivan didn’t say anything else.

Sullivan’s past sexist, racist, and homophobic comments produced an apology from him as well as a strongly worded message from one of WWE’s biggest sponsors.

WWE found a way to squeeze Sullivan in on the go-home show to a pay-per-view where he is not scheduled to compete.

So maybe WWE is not done pushing Lars Sullivan?
