WWE Spokesman – “WWE Is In The Business Of Putting Smiles On People’s Faces”

Former U.S. Rep. Christopher Shays continues to hammer Linda McMahon as he challenges her for the Republican nomination for the Senate seat of Connecticut. Shays, who has been a sharp critic of McMahon, said he questions WWE’s motivation for shifting to a PG-rated format. Not only did a spokeswoman for Linda McMahon say they were not “getting down in the gutter with Mr. Shays,” WWE issued a statement:

“WWE’s 13 million weekly TV viewers and our 100 million social media followers would disagree that WWE’s content is violent,” WWE spokesman Brian Flinn said. “WWE programming is TV-PG and family friendly, with women making up nearly 40 percent of our audience.

    Thats why I have changed to TNA. TNA = Wrestling, wwe = kids show.
    And I was a hardcore Wwe fan. Sad to see that sosial medias, films and everything else then wrestling is WWEs focus.

    I agree completely. Every time I flip the channel to a normal RAW, I smile and laugh and giggle and shake my head and cry and every other way to express my humored frustration with their horrible programming.

    WWE? Out to put smiles on the faces of the fans? That is the biggest crock of bullshit I have ever heard in my life. If they were seriously wanting to make us happy why the hell would they keep fans from seeing their favorite wrestlers? Sooooooo, no, they are LIARS!
