Linda McMahon Loses Connecticut Senate Race Again

Democratic Rep. Chris Murphy is the projected winner against Linda McMahon in Connecticut’s U.S. Senate race, according to The Associated Press and NBC News.

The Associated Press called the race for Murphy just 30 minutes after the polls closed, as he was leading 54% to 45%.

The former WWE CEO spent $50 million of her personal fortune in her failed 2010 campaign against Richard Blumenthal, and is believed to have spent $42 million against Murphy. Between both campaigns, McMahon has now spent a cumulative total of over $90 million in pursuit of federal office. That is more than any other American in history.

    Linda McMahon losses again what a surprise NOT!!!! Vince needs to now realize his wife political future never will be. Tell her she is done bring back Attitude era to the WWE. Yes I agree he should have spent the money the money to bring back the WWF and tell the World Wild Life Fund that thier lettering is actually WWLF not WWF and they need to give the World Wrestling Federation the WWF letters. Also Vince here some advice after you do that you can take your company in a new direction. WWE parent company you make Raw WWF, Smackdown rename it WCW Revolution.Main Event rename it ECW Hard Core Heat.

    The Mcmahons spent almost $100 million of their own money hurting themselves. It directly led to the company losing a lot of its value, vince losing a lot of his own net worth, and the companys product getting to the point where it is literally unwatchable. Things have been better over this past year in terms of the actual product, but they have lost a lot of viewers, including myself, and until real change happens, that will continue. Now is the time to move forward. Now is the time to tell Linda to go fuck herself. Now is the time to turn this around b/c if things dont change, the entire wrestling business will be dead within 10 years. Take advantage of this! The kids you geared your product to over the past 5-6 years are now older. Now is your chance to do something you did when Attitude first came into the product after the family friendly programming you had before that. I’m not saying you have to do drastically crazy things to make all kids go away. I’m saying that now you have a chance to open up the product and have more room to work with. In doing so, the audience will expand, just as you wanted from this PG era (which by the way, you ended up losing people from doing that b/c all you have now is the kids) and you will add the adults to the kids you have. Have other shows geared towards kids if you want, but leave Monday Night Raw alone. Now is your chance. TAKE IT

  • Brody Lawrence

    Face it Mcmahons. Republicans can’t win in Connecticut. So enough with Be a Star, editing your DVDs, and all the other phony PR ploys and enough with the PG era. Get angry and return WWE to prominence without having to apologize about the Attitude Era. Bring back the edgier WWF/E we all remembered from years past. You’ll make that $90 million back in no time.
