The nail in the coffin for the Linda McMahon Campaign

No matter how hard they try to distance themselves from the Pro Wrestling stigma, they can’t and probably will never do that. Also, she has reportedly spent about twice as much as any other Senatorial campaign in the country so there might be some unemployed wrestlers in a few weeks.

Fun with Linda’s campaign

As a former resident of Connecticut, Ive been following Linda's 2nd Senate campaign as closely as the first when I got to vote against her. This one is a LOT more fun.
 
Started off sort of innocently with a local editor doing the standard, WWE was raunch pre-2008 column. Unlike the 1st campaign, the WWE fired back with lawsuit threats and claimed they were being "bullied" – I have no idea how they got that. http://www.darientimes.com/news/darien-features/local-news/5003306-wwe-threatens-columnist-with-libel-suit-over-pornography.html
 
In response, basically every CT newspaper has called out the WWE for being the bullies. And the local editor, under threat of lawsuit, fired back with a tremendous burn on Linda McMahon: http://www.journalinquirer.com/articles/2012/05/30/chris_powell/doc4fc6ea7f645fd394119365.txt
 
And here's a good roundup basically calling out the WWE for turning this into a PR nightmare. http://blogs.rep-am.com/worth_reading/2012/05/29/the-empire-strikes-back/
 
PS – My favorite part is the "Trish barking like a dog" YouTube video being taken down by the WWE after newspapers started linking to it.

I think that any libel case filed by WWE can be destroyed in 5 seconds with four words:  Edge's Live Sex Celebration.  That was simulated sex on a WWE TV show, which is pretty much the definition of pornography.  
Linda is many things, but a smart politician is WAY down the list.  

WWE begins new viral campaign

WWE has began to randomly play this on its site.

Where does the blog think this is going? Let the speculation commence.


They're adding yet another TV show to their roster of internet properties that no one watches.  I'm assuming this Revolution one will be replacing NXT.  The first set of tapings is currently scheduled for later this month.

What that would have to do with the video shown, I don't know.
