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.
