Update on the ‘Stand up for WWE’ campaign



The Connecticut Democratic State party is not happy with WWE’s latest
publicity stunt, the Stand Up for WWE campaign, calling it “illegal
coordination” to encourage people to vote for former WWE Chief Executive
Officer Linda McMahon in next month’s Senate election. Linda McMahon’s
campaign team denies any involvement with WWE’s campaign saying the company
acted independently. “Linda McMahon’s $50 million attack machine now has
corporate reinforcements, thanks to the ‘Stand up for WWE’ campaign launched
by her husband Vince McMahon. No coincidence, it looks a lot like her
political campaign, except this one is probably against the law,” a
statement from the state party says. State party spokeswoman Kate Hansen
told CQPolitics.com that she thinks it’s “unbelievable” that Linda claims
that the PR campaign is independent considering her husband Vince
specifically cites the Senate race as the reason for the move. WWE’s Robert
Zimmerman defended the campaign and said, “It had absolutely nothing to do
with the Linda McMahon campaign. It’s trying to correct inaccuracies that
have been reported. The attention that’s been put on WWE by Linda’s
opponents have focused media attention on the company.”

    This is going to backfire spectacularly. Vince is trying hard to get everyone worldwide on his cause, and Connecticut is the only place where it matters.

    Anyone gonna take bets as to when Senator Blumenthal will guest host Monday Night Raw?

    This is just mediocre and Linda’s whole campaign is going to continue to have an adverse effect upon the WWE. I’d bet most American WWE fans would be silently pleased if she lost.
