Vince McMahon sick of Sen. campaign WWE smackdowns
Question of the Day
STAMFORD, CONN. (AP) - Vince McMahon, chairman and CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, says his wife’s political opponents are taking unfair shots at his business to try to discredit her U.S. Senate candidacy.
In an interview with The Associated Press, McMahon says the wrestling empire’s detractors have taken snippets of footage out of context, such as a necrophilia scene and one in which a woman licks his shoes and barks like a dog.
He concedes the WWE has made some mistakes. He says the company two years ago decided to move away from “shock TV” to more family-friendly scenes.
Linda McMahon, former CEO of WWE, faces two opponents in the Aug. 10 Republican primary.
