When You’ve Lost Rowdy Roddy Piper…

Filed in National by on November 8, 2012

you’ve lost the rasslin’ universe.  Especially all the Little Hulksters who said their prayers and took their ‘vitamins’. I’m a proud subscriber to Wrestling Observer/Figure Four Weekly. Make of that what you will, armchair psychoanalysts.

Which is where I got this tidbit:

Roddy Piper was not happy about hearing about what Linda McMahon spent: “Can spend 90 million on losing elections but won’t give the people that earned that money for them medical or retirement help of any kind.” (You see, one way that Vince and Linda ‘built this’ was to designate their superstars as ‘independent contractors’, not employees. Hence, no pensions or health insurance. Oh, and WWE owns the monickers for the characters, so the wrestlers get screwed out of royalty money as well.)

The election was not even as close as it appeared last night.  As of a few hours ago, Chris Murphy was ahead 55% to 43% or more than any of the polls indicated.  A key difference according to analysts in Connecticut is that women voters did not trust her. Male voters were split on whether she was intentionally misleading people in advertising, while women voters overwhelmingly believed that to be the case. So, her own ads helped do her in.

Finally, watch and enjoy Linda’s concession speech:


Pay particular attention to the face of bat-shit crazy Vince McMahon, who first appears around the 2-minute mark. I know what he’s thinking: “I pissed away 90 million fucking dollars for THIS??”

Yes you did.

    I, for one, like the GOP strategy of nominating unelectable douche-bags to run for Senate seats. I hope they stick with it.

    They should nominate Trump next, Jason

    Katie Vick must be rolling in her grave.

    Billionaire would be politicians take note, America does not like you. The attempt to buy political office is anethma to most Americans, no matter how far right they are. McMahon should form a support group with Meg Whitman, or just join the one that Adelson and the Koch Brothers need to start.

    X Stryker FTW!
