New York Times Falls for Both the Little Carnies and the Über Carnies

From Great Britain, Mike Aldren of Wrestling Globe Newsletter tells me that the New York Times story on Linda McMahon made him chuckle for a different reason: the passage at the end about Dawn Marie’s purported charity Wrestlers Rescue, which she says she set up to support retired wrestlers.

According to Aldren, “Nobody seems to know where all the money has gone nor has anyone seemingly benefited from the money that Dawn has raised over the past three years. Her former friends have told me she uses the money to fly herself to conventions around the country so she can profit from autograph signings. She has agreements with several promoters where if she flies herself in she will get a free table to sell her merchandise. When I started asking reasonable questions, Dawn set her attorney on me, who admits Wrestlers Rescue is not a registered charity.”
