Rhyno on Getting Into Politics, Vince McMahon’s Reaction Backstage at RAW, Platform, Donald Trump

Mar 5, 2016 - by Marc Middleton

– As noted, ECW Original Rhyno filed to run as a State Representative for his district in Dearborn, Michigan this week. Rhyno spoke to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports about his campaign and why he’s running. You can read the full interview at this link. Rhyno, who is running as a Republican, says he informed Vince McMahon of the decision backstage at a RAW event in December:

“I told Vince, ‘I hope I make you proud.’ He said, ‘You already have.’ He then followed up by saying if there was anything (WWE) can do to help to let them know. He didn’t ask what party I was running for or this and that. The McMahons’ love for their country is just contagious.”

Rhyno also said he’s not backing WWE Hall of Famer Donald Trump in the 2016 presidential election, he’s backing Ohio governor John Kasich. He said:

“I’m not sold on Donald Trump. I think a lot of people might identify me in this race with Donald Trump as a gimmick and this and that. No. Helping people out is a passion of mine. I like Kasich because I think he will reach across the (partisan) aisle and work to get stuff done with give-and-take to make things happen to help people.”

Rhyno says he will be running on a platform that includes improving teacher salaries, road construction and more government accountability with tax dollars. He admitted his campaign, which will be online soon at TerranceGuidoGerin.com, will be grassroots and will rely on volunteers. He says he’s proud of his wrestling accomplishments but won’t be surprised if his opponents try to use it against him:

“I don’t think it will hurt me at all. I think candidates that run against me will try to make fun of it to discredit me so they can win the election, which is understandable. But I want to go out and discuss how we can make this state better, how we can make people’s lives easier and educate the kids.”
