WWE Diva Publicly Endorses Linda McMahon For U.S. Senate – Could She Get In Trouble?

WWE ring announcer Lilian Garcia posted a message on Twitter today encouraging her followers living in Connecticut to vote for Linda McMahon as U.S. Senator.

“Voting day!!!! If u live in CT I hope u will vote 4 @Linda_McMahon 4 Senator! Worked 4 her 4 10yrs! Great Lady!! Go Linda!! #Vote,” she wrote.

Some of the Diva’s followers have speculated that she could get in trouble with WWE for publicly showing support for McMahon after Brian Jossie, who portrayed A.W., claimed in an August interview with Connecticut’s The Day that he was released from his contract with the sports-entertainment organization because he encouraged his followers to vote for her.

Upon being informed of his termination, Jossie said he received a phone call from Jane Geddes, Vice President of Talent Relations, telling him he committed a major faux pas with his pro-Linda tweet.

“For some reason they don’t want to associate her with anything to do with wrestling because it’s in the past,” Jossie said. “Vince (McMahon) doesn’t want any association with her campaign. They told me it’s two totally different entities, which I didn’t know. I thought I was doing a good thing.”

WWE, however, rejected Jossie’s claims in the article, attributing his release to poor judgment on live television and social media. Spokesperson Brian Finn stated, “WWE is a non-partisan organization. Superstars as well as employees are free to support any political party or candidate they choose. Unfortunately, Brian Jossie, playing the character of A.W., was terminated because he continued to exhibit poor judgment by making offensive and inappropriate comments on live television and on social media.”
