i'm sorry but the stand up for wwe campaign is pointless. i'm sick of hearing about it and its taking up air-time. the fact that they think there gonna change the company in a suitable manner by doing this is beyond me. they think having the wwe superstars talk about how great the company is will make everybody see that wwe is a positive company. the media will never have a positive view of wwe. you have the politics, the injuries, steroid abuse, the long schedule, and lets not forget the deaths of wrestlers but wwe wants to paint a positive picture of its company. come on! i love wrestling but i don't want my son to think that wrestling is positive and all great. i would teach him the reality of wrestling and not the fairy tale bullshit wwe is trying to put out. wwe did do alot of great things in and out of the business but leaving out the reality of wrestling isn't being truthful imo. i love wwe and would hope to wrestle in there company but if i see another "stand up for wwe" clip on raw tonight, i'm going to turn the channel. what do you think about this campaign? is it helping or hurting the company?

Please allow the most stand out forum poster in the EWN community give his infinite wisdom on this matter. Let me tell you what the WWE does that you might not know about. They work with the MDA (the muscular dystrophy association) so they can bring awareness for MDA. The wwe and countless superstars mostly John Cena works with make a wish foundation. You know that Slurpee drink you got at 7-11 over the summer, you helped a kid get his wish come true by enjoying it. Ever heard of GET R.E.A.L its an in-school program that brings Superstars into schools to deliver positive messages about Respect, Education, Achievement and Leadership, and how these four tenets can help students achieve these goals. The WWE also partners with AmeriCares Haiti relief efforts. AmeriCares has delivered millions of dollars worth of supplies and medical assistance to the affected area since the catastrophic earthquake occurred on January 12, 2010. On top of that they support Toys For Tots. Each year, WWE donates millions of dollars worth of products to various charities. As many people around the world struggle to make ends meet due to economic hardship, WWE and Mattel have joined forces to encourage the WWE Universe to think of those less fortunate this holiday season.
Last but not least they put on a show for OUR TROOPS WHO PROTECT US EACH AND EVERY DAY with Tribute to the Troops special. how many other companies do you know that go to IRAQ and put themselves in danger to give our troops a little entertainment. The WWE does wonderful things to many communities including bringing in much needed money for all the restaurants around the arena's and such. I'm so sorry the STAND UP FOR WWE is taking up your precious air time. I'm really dumbfounded by your reaction to this. Of course we can all talk about the deaths in pro raslin but when does personal responsibility come in. I guess some people like yourself go throughout life thinking the cup is half empty but I will always go through life thinking the glass is half full.

U MAD???

its annoying when people like you twists my words up and make me look like a fool. like bodom said, i like what wwe does for the troops and efforts for the MAW fund but to show us videos of wrestlers and employees telling us how great it is to be in the wwe is annoying.

I wasn't trying to make you look like a fool at all, i was just giving wisdom on the matter that you might not be aware of. Whats wrong with a company standing up for itself and talk about the great things it does. You said it yourself the media tries to take pot shots at it every chance it gets. Especially when something bad happens. Thats how the news works, when was the last time you heard a good story on the news, I'll help you out almost never. The WWE pay's pretty damn well and it's empolyes are taken care of so they can take care of there families. The WWE has 3rd generation superstars working for it. It can't be that bad to have generation after generation of families working for it. Thats something to be proud of as a company. Did you see the political ads attacking Linda? They used the clip of her kicking JR in the NUTS? Thats just wrong. They had to get footage of her on a fictitious TV program and attack her because they couldn't find any dirt on her in real life. They didn't bring up the issues real people want to talk about, they had no class. No wonder politics in this country is a joke. You see not only did they do that but they tried to ban people from wearing WWE Clothes to the polls. What kind of shit is that? What did you want the WWE to do, sit back and let them do what they wanted and take away peoples right to wear the clothes they want? If I was Vince I would have done the same thing, sue them and win and even though Linda didn't win, Vince proved they cant f with him or any fans of the WWE. So yeah I stand up for the WWE and my rights. You have the right not to watch but getting mad at a company for standing up for themselves and saying positive things they do seems to me your forgetting the whole point why they had to do this in the first place. U MAD???

um your wrong about everything there bud. You can have political signs and and banners at polling centers, they have to be a certain amount of feet away(I think its 40 feet from the front door) but you can have them. As for the shirts the polling people cant wear them and I'm not sure if its a big deal to wear them in the polling place, they might ask you to turn it inside out but most people that work the polls don't give a shit as long as you don't try to get people to vote for a certain person within the 40 foot limit.

There's a level of self-involvement running rampant in the IWC that seems to prevent many from being completely reasonable human beings and seeing things this way. You've got a couple of million people all expecting a single company to cater specifically to their exact wants, needs, and/or interests, and anything that deviates from that is met with a predictable chorus of digital whining. And in some instances, many seem to go out of their way to find things just to have something to piss and moan about, as if the world is in desperate need of more things for people to perpetuate negativity about.

Of all the things to bag on the WWE for, this is seriously about the silliest. Heaven forbid we be forced to endure a couple of minutes of tastefully done video packages.

I admire and respect all the contributions the WWE has done for the community. Here is the thing. We ALL know about it. They don't need to wave it in our faces for 5 minutes a night. As said before, it doesn't matter what the WWE has done or no matter who stands up for them - face facts! People will ALWAYS talk shit about the WWE. You can't make people not say bad things about you. You may as well take away the first amendment. So I ask you - what was the point of this campaign?

I'll tell you. To help Linda McMahon look good in her race towards a house seat. Thats the only legit reason, at least I can come up with, he actually went OUT OF HIS WAY to do this campaign. If she was not running for senate, he wouldn't have given a rats ass about what those politicians were saying. Don't get me wrong. I thought it was complete bullshit that they were turning people who wore wrestling shirts away at the voting polls; now THAT is something I will stand up for. However, I thought Vince was throwing gasoline onto the fire when he was giving away or selling the shirts AT the polls.

I do enough standing up for WWE just being a wrestling fan. Don't expect me to go out of my way to make you guys look good, though.
