McMahon Ripped Over WWE Deaths, Ignores Subject In Response



Christopher Shays, a former member of the United States House of Representative who is running as a Republican against Linda McMahon in the 2012 United States Senate election in Connecticut, took the former WWE CEO to task over the numerous WWE performers to pass away before the age of 50: who McMahon made part of her campaign narrative of corporate success and economic prosperity.

“Let’s think about it. She’s got over 41 people 50 years and younger who’ve died in her jobs. That’s quite a job record that she’s created,” Shays said Wednesday.

In response, McMahon campaign spokeswoman Erin Isaac released a statement saying that the two-time Senate contender is focused on finding solutions for unemployment. No mention was made of WWE or the numerous wrestling deaths.

“Nearly 160,000 people woke up in Connecticut without a job this morning,” Isaac wrote. “Linda spent her day talking with folks about her plan to put them back to work. This positive message and Linda’s proven record of job creation are exactly why she is endorsed by more than 1,800 hardworking families and small business owners and nearly 130 grassroots leaders across the state, including 20 Republican State Central Committee members and 60 Republican Town Committee chairs.”
