Vince cries as Linda concedes



Go to 1:55

It must have been the 100 mil down the drain.

Mods: I see a prior thread was locked for being about "politics", but I think wrestling fans are pretty united on this issue and it's effect on the WWE and it has nothing to do with her politics. We actually had a long civil thread about it before, but I can't find it now.

Vince realized the 100M was wasted because Linda wont be in Washington trying to hook WWE up with more tax breaks

Was expecting Triple H to be there, to wipe the tears from Vince's face.

That look on his face.

That look will always be remembered.

"Company's going to hell in a handbasket, I wasted 100 million on this campaign only to lose twice... what have I done with my life?"

Definitely looked like he didn't want to be there.

Vince McMahon is probably thinking, "I've lost 100 million in the last two years for this ******** and my product ****ing sucks."

We all knew it, but watching Vince cry and that upset makes me believe one of the MAJOR reasons he went to PG was for Linda. It wasn't for sponsors or anything like that. They can't be happy with recent ratings.

It won't be right away, but we definitely might see a more edgy product. AT LEAST pushing the PG boundaries. Recently we've been on G.

Yes.

Hopefully this lights a fire under his ass to make his product better.

I agree with this. I think this all was the reason Vince has been going bat**** insane for the past few years. I think he did it all to help Linda, and instead, it's hurt the interest of the WWE and it cost the McMahons 100 million. I actually feel sorry for the man. Maybe he's gone crazy for a good reason.

It's a good question as to who's wagging the dog here. Vince acts like he doesn't really give a crap if she runs for Senate (he doesn't do many public appearances for her and the skit on Raw the night before the 2010 election implied he thought it was too much money to spend) but I think he absolutely wants that seat and the power it provides in Washington.

She has to be done right? No way she makes another run in 4 years right?

Well, let's put it this way. I doubt the Republican party is going to break their bank trying to defeat Blumenthal, so if she's willing to waste her own money again, they might go for it.

She ain't running for governor in 2 years either, that's an actual tough job.

Linda McMahon spent $97,000,000 on her two runs and she STILL has to pay people that were involved in her campaign.

Blood isn't a political thing. It's a safety thing.

universal precautions. HIV dies in 5 seconds of air contact but other diseases can last up to 6 months without proper cleaning. Also the skin to skin contact.

She's running in the wrong state, too.


Regardless of anything, right or wrong, she was never getting past that clip of her kicking Jim Ross in the nuts.
