    Good. Maybe Vince will wake up and bring back

    PG-13 / Attitude 2.0!

    • jdl

      The senate runs had very little to do with the PG era, they're PG for superior sponsors, not to protect Linda's shot at the senate.

      • Ken

        Hey there. Wanna buy a bridge?

  • kbos2791

    Hopefully now the mcmahons will focus more on the wwe

  • Dan

    Good.

  • Van

    Lets just hope it'll be the last time she runs.In her first campaign thining it'll help out her votes,she made Vince turn WWE PG to make it look family friendly and yet she lost.During this run,she had almost everything from the Attitude Era off the internet because they were using clips from that era to make her look bad.Who knows what would happen if she were to try again thinking 3rd times the charm?

  • Isaac

    in the words of daniel bryan YES! YES! YES!

  • Chris

    Time for the "now no more PG" comments to flood in!

  • Frenchfry

    Sorry Linda

  • PainOfDemise

    Good. Now cut all this crap off WWE. Linda will never win.

  • AntGilroy

    Now we can have the attitude era back

  • Ant

    I am partially to thank or to blame depending on how you feel. I voted for Murphy.

    • Alex

      Thank you

  • Marc

    Yes, Attitude Era 2.0, here we come!

  • Stoney

    for everyone who thinks that WWE will drop the PG rating since Linda lost, think again PG isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

    • Alex

      I agree. The only way PG will ever go away is if they get some legitimate competition again like they did with WCW. The fact of the matter is that Vince always publicly hated the attitude era. He only did it out of necessity to combat WCW & ECW. To use, it was one of the greatest eras in wrestling. To Vince, it was just a means to an end.

  • thoughtswithin

    Maybe she'll get the hint that no one wants her in the Senate.

    The majority of people in the world don't even make that much in a lifetime and she pisses it away like it's change.

    Very sad/

    • WNW FAN

      She earned it and it was her money. She can spend it however she wants. Get over it.

  • Dig Baddy

    Hahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!

  • Charles

    Why did this bring a rye smile to my face?

  • Me.

    $100 million down the toilet. Must be nice to light that much money on fire.

  • Bigdaddychuck

    Tomorrow morning she will announce she will run in 2014…

  • Kris Hardy

    Y'know, I predict she will be running for Connecticut House in 2014. I bet she will not stop.

  • mjledesma

    Yes yes yes yes yes yes!!!!!!

  • CynIsIn

    LOL.

  • buddah5050

    Lmao!!!

  • bejealous

    As Nelson would say: HA HA!

  • christopher525

    Ok, I think Vince needs to tell her that they just can't afford another run from her. HE might have been able to get votes, somehow, but Linda just isn't going to pull it off.

  • Moose666

    Knock the shock off my face…

  • joe

    YES YES YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!!!

  • jchoff1

    I feel bad for her . However, now is the time for the WWE to bring back an attitude style product. The entire WWE could now be repackaged. We can only hope !

  • Hitman310

    Got your wish Richard..

  • Ray

    It won’t change anything. WWE pg is selling too well to change.

  • sweeeeeet

    Totally off topic but, is anybody else having problems with the nWo the revolution blu ray DVD? I bought mine today and my blu ray player couldn’t read neither of the 2 discs. I thought it was my blu ray player but it wasent because I tried some movies that I already have and they worked… Just wondering if anyone else is having the same problem for the blu ray version of it. Hope they let me exchange it for a better copy…

  • JonnyVC

    Would a cena heel turn cost them 100 million in merchandise? And what they save in little kid/ ugly women/ fat dad t shirts would improve product quality and ppv buys?

  • Matt

    I was rooting for Linda as she's done a lot for Connecticut, but hopefully this loss will mean she can come back to WWE and they can make good programming again!

  • Maxx Stylez

    Sorry, but for everyone thinking that Linda’s loss equals the attitude era coming back or a tv-14 product again, you are very sadly mistaken. The tv-pg initiative was launched to gain a much larger variety of sponcers for the product, which in turn makes Vince, Linda and the shareholders, more money. Even though it was one of my favorite times in the WWE as well, I know it’s gone just like ECW. So please accept and be thankful of what you have, as disappointing as the product can be at times.

    And thankfully she did announce in her concession speech she is not running in 2014.

  • Wwe4L76

    Focus on wwe! They dont want you in the politics!

  • Steve

    I wish people will realise the PG rating has nothing to do with Linda’s campaign. It’s all about advertising and creating more revenue…something you can’t have in 2012 when you have men putting old ladies through tables on your programming. Times have changed, it’s not 1999 anymore.

  • Bishop

    Tey are going to turn this into a story line….great

  • Alex

    Good. It was a waste of money years ago, and everyone knew it. Imagine how many wrestlers wouldn't have had to be cut from the roster or take a pay cut if she didn't have delusions of grandeur.

  • Code

    I'd hate to be near Vince right now

  • Goliath

    YES YES YES!!!!!

  • Ken

    I believe the correct phrase here is "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA LOOOOOOOOOOSERRRRRRRRRRRRRRrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr………………………"

  • Taylor

    The biggest mistake that the McMahons have made during these two elections is they've lied trying to cover up who they really are…. You cannot try and erase the some of the more radical moments of the Attitude Era and pretend to be someone you're not

  • spike westphal

    maybe linda will have better luck running for house of reps

  • MyPointsOfView

    Thank fuck for that, the wwe has been totally ruined because of her pointless spending spree of millions, why not look at the big picture and see what’s going on, $50 million wasted, and wwe fan base and ratings going down and down, you could have spent that on building up better wrestlers building up the product to what it was, I mean ok yeah before attitude era it was PG but you had hulk hogan, randy savage, undertaker, ultimate warrior and jimmy fly snuka…..JUST to mention a few, big time players, now who the fuck do you have, ????????? And don’t even get me started on what they have done to kane, hugging scenes, yeah right….WWE know that attitude era was better just look at wwe 13 game all about attitude era, they keep bring attitude era guys back….the rock, undertaker, Mick foley, shawn michaels….what they gunna do when these guys are too old….ay? PG won’t go away over night and it might not even go away at all BUT atleast build up what you got now, make some credible story lines bigger players and events and FFS get bid of tje wwe and world belt and have one world champion……….I hope wwe see some of these posts and relize what they are doing is NOT what the fans want, well most of them anyways, I mean even if they kept smackdown pg and had raw tv-14 that would work anything is better than watching cartoon caracters, even my 6 year old son thinks attitude era is alot better and would rather watch repeats on YouTube than the current product!!!!!!! Says it all!!!!!!

  • Paul uk

    Give it up!

  • StephenSnel23

    So many thick headed morons think this is the end of PG. Once again, it’s not PG because of her damn campaign. Maybe it was a little bit, but the main reason is MONEY!! PG means they get more company to advertise their product on WWE TV. Also the contract the have with Mattel (they make the toys) also has to do with WWE being PG. So please, stop getting your hopes up, it’s getting annoying.

  • Michael

    WWE might have to turn to tv 14 again to gain that 100 million dollars back

  • beverly

    ok we all know that vince is a mistake and now we know linda is too. vince is screwing with the so called gm of raw vickie guerrero. and we all know that is he is humping eve too. vince shows us clearly he does not know how to do wrestling all he knows is pimping them out . that is one reason phillip aka cm punk is going under mask. just like richardo did.. linda showing she is also screwing around as well. being on the show. she says she quote quit the bussiness. yea really belive that . the only way she will quit is when she gets ready to quit and shows everyone. don't think I would be holding my breath on that one. cause it is not going to happen no time soon

  • WNW FAN

    If Linda would have been a Democrat and not a McMahon would this site suggest that she "bought" a seat?

    • Richard Gray

      Democrat, independent, green… whenever you spend $100 million you “bought” it.

  • Justin

    They're making too much money with the PG product, getting sponsors that are attracted to that rating that pay well. Very unlikely to go to PG-13 or higher, although we may see some edgier storylines now.

  • beverly

  • beverly

    scared to put that on ok. so maybe this is not real world. where you can post what you won't

  • beverly

    where is my post richard

  • eddie27

    I’m willing to bet my life savings that there will be a ” Since Linda McMahon lost will WWE drop PG?” question on Ask WNW

  • An0n

    Shocker? Not really

  • orewazero

    Watch her try and run for president in 2016.

    • JonnyVC

      LOL! When she gets bored and decides the only way to cure the boredom is to run for president .. Everyone will be pleading for WWE PG to come back.. It will change to WTF “world tiddlywinks federation”
