    She won't run a third time, even Vince isn't that stupid, I can see them making some cuts in the roster since they need to balance the profit, an union seems like a dream as some stated before, but I don't see PG going anytime soon

    I'd imagine the deal she puts on the table is "You pretend that I have a chance in politics, and I'll pretend that you're not just using your company to rub up against young women"

Given the "independent" views of many wrestlers, though, that's not likely to happen.

    Perhaps the negative publicity will force the WWE to take better care of the mid-card talent, as it forced their hand with the Wellness Policy, the anti-concussion initiatives, etc, but other than that the complaining by un-named talent is most likely going to continue.
    These guys like Piper, Foley, Ventura all talk about the need for a wrestlers' union...but when is one of them going to quit flapping his yap and make a move to actually start one? Prediction: never. It all sounds righteous when standing on the soapbox--stating the obvious, no less--but this whole "I've got a great idea. Now all I need is someone else to do the actual work" routine is waaaay tired.

    When I hear someone like zack Ryder is sleeping in a friends apartment, you know for a fact the system is fucked up.

    WWE tried to clean up its image during the Senate campaign in an attempt to make itself more presentable as family fare. Still, Democrats found ways to remind the electorate of an online scene featuring a wrestler simulating sex with a corpse in a casket.

    this made me laugh

    not a good day for sports personalities running for Senate.

    Connie Mack IV, who carries one of the most venerated names in baseball, was defeated in a bid for a Senate seat in Florida.
    George Allen, with familial links to the Washington Redskins past and present, also was blocked from the Senate.
    Ben Chandler, the grandson of onetime baseball commissioner Happy Chandler, was ousted from his U.S. House seat in Kentucky.
