In late 2010, Linda McMahon was running for the U.S Senate. She was attacked for WWE’s past business and ethical scandals, and especially for some of the controversial story lines they portrayed on-screen (IE: Objectifying women, Satanism, Attempted murder, and so on).
Much of the controversial on-air material was from The Attitude Era which had taken place several years before.
Linda’s loving/opportunistic husband Vince McMahon responded by doing what he does every time anyone dares to question him or his company- he got ultra-defensive and cranky much in the same way a toddler would when you tell him he can’t have a cookie before dinner.
So, in October of 2010 he posted the above video on WWE.com, as well as airing the this self-congratulating puff-peice video on WWF Raw.
He might as well have stolen Jeff Jarrett’s catchphrase and just called the video “Ain’t We Great?”.
If you took a drink every time WWE patted themselves on the back during that video that aired on Raw, you’d be dead of alcohol poisoning by now!
We here at WrestleCrap did the only thing we could do in such a trying situation in which our favorite sport is put directly in the crosshairs by politicians and the media…
We mocked the entire situation unmercifully for our own amusement and shameless promotional purposes, of course!
R.D Reynolds himself (in spiffy dress shirt and tie- I.R.S never looked so good!) encouraged YOU; the WrestleCrap Universe to Sit Down For WrestleCrap.com!
Well said, Boss! That was some fine speachifying you did, there. Bravo! That was very inspirational. It would bring a tear to a glass eye, it would!
So; there is a bright side to Vince’s endless whining about the media being so unfair- it gave R.D a fine excuse to make a really funny parody video.
And they say politicians are useless?
