As noted earlier, Politico.com has an article up that paints former WWE CEO and United States Senate hopeful Linda McMahon in a very negative light. The article includes quotes from several former WWE employees, who say it would be downright wrong for McMahon to reach such a high position of power in the United States government. Here are some more quotes from former WWE talent::
Superstar Billy Graham: "This campaign is the height of hypocrisy. I believe the voters and citizens in Connecticut deserve to be told the truth. In no way does she have a rightful place in the U.S. Senate. The fact that we were out there experiencing trauma and drawing in untold millions for the company [means] we should have at least had some sort of health insurance."
The Blue Meanie: "We're the guys out there sacrificing ourselves. You'd think they'd throw us a bone. Sometimes you wondered if they saw their employees as humans or farm animals It was like being in the circus. You're shipped here, perform there; it's almost like you're disposable.""
WWE's lack of health insurance is at the heart of the wrestlers' grievances. They allege that McMahon and her husband, WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, ran a billion-dollar company that provided no health insurance for the wrestlers who put their bodies on the line to help turn the WWE into the global phenomenon it is today.
