#MeToo & Wrestling

Hi Scott,

The whole Meltzer & MeToo semi-controversy recently has got me thingk"

Considering that, apparently, everyone who's ever set foot in Hollywood or Washington 
was sexually harassed at one point or another, do you think, it's surprising that the only real sex scandal to come out of WWE has been Garvin-gate from damn near 30 years ago (And, technically Moolah, if anything creepy happened)?

My first thought would've been that Vince must have the WWF on lockdown as far as secrets are concerned but that seems to be impossible. Wrestlers come and go, interviews are constant with ex-wrestlers with axes to grind accuses wrestlers of all sorts of stuff. I'm sure if Meltzer, Keller, and now literally any number of podcasters were privy to some sort of casting couch, we would have heard about it by now. Hell, outside of the random jobber, vaguely implying that he didn't get a push because he didn't sleep with Patterson, you basically don't hear anything. Vince McMahon is a man with a have a history of all sorts of affair throughout his life, who employs some of the sexiest women on the planet, and not ONCE, has anyone ever even suggested that he propositioned Trish, Lita, Mickie, or whoever. 

And I'm not just talking about within the company. There are no stories of wrestlers, Snuka and B*noit excluded, doing anything messed up with women, non-consensually, no roid rage rape stories, no concussion-fueled attack stories where a hungry wrestler throws a boulder through a McDonald's (except the one).

So, at the end of the day, is the wrestlers more ethically than celebrities and politicians? Or is the wrestling world really just an amazingly tight boys club that won't brake ranks even for a Roided-up Weinstein?


Ultimately, it's "just" wrestling, so mainstream media doesn't care.  That's really all there is to it, I think.
