How Old Is Triple H?, RAW Matches For Next Week, Benoit/WWE

– Two WWE Superstars celebrate birthdays today as Triple H turns 41 years old while Dolph Ziggler hits 30.

Terri Bey/PWinsider posted this recap: Interview with Marco Rubio (R), Florida Senate Candidate and Linda McMahon. Rubio said he hopes there could be a majority of Republicans in the Senate. Linda talked about Republican challengers that they still had to have a Primary, August 10. She said she was the endorsed candidate. She said Rob Simmons is on again and off again, as far as his Senate bid , but she wants to get past the primary. She said doesn't take anything for granted. Rubio said if elected he wants an agenda to keep America the strongest country in the world and slow down spending and have a pro growth agenda. Linda agrees and wants to put America back to work. She wants a Balanced Budget Amendment. She says that we can't spend more than we are bringing. She said Connecticut voters told her that they are concerned about the economy and they want to get back to work. She said she is told, "Stop the spending." Sean Hannity pointed out that Rubio had a list of 12 ways to cut spending and wanted Rubio's top 5. Rubio then says they have to get rid of "Obamacare" , make pledge to not have energy tax and a bal budget amendment, roll back the budget to 2008 and freeze it and entitlement reform. He wants to make 2003 tax cuts permanent. Linda wants to eliminate earmarks. She said that they all want to bring money back to their states but she thinks that should be done by grants and not stuck onto bills they have nothing to do with. She said the problem with our government is that they stick on the earmarks without realizing how the money is being spent. She said they had to have transparency. Hannity ends the interview.
