‘WWE Was Willing to Look the Other Way to Compete for Profits’

James Caldwell of Pro Wrestling Torch has a good analysis of Linda McMahon’s appearance two days ago on Connecticut Public Radio’s Where We Live. See “WWE News: Former CEO Linda McMahon continues to be defensive on WWE topics, addresses suspending drug-testing in 1990s,” http://pwtorch.com/artman2/publish/WWE_News_3/article_40344.shtml.

The money quote:

McMahon is essentially saying WWE was willing to look the other way and it was more important to compete for profits – the same profits McMahon is using to fund her Senate campaign – rather than effectively monitor the health & well-being of their wrestlers as they formed life-endangering habits that might not come up immediately, but certainly set them up for death or their bodies being ravaged post-wrestling.

The interviewer, John Dankosky, pressed McMahon on key issues and didn’t let up when McMahon showed a bit of strain having to answer so many WWE questions, so it’s worth listening to …

Again, the link to the interview is http://www.cpbn.org/node/19682. My own full taped interview with John Dankosky is scheduled for a future edition of Where We Live.
