Linda McMahon Verbally Attacked For WWE During Debate

Justin LaBar

Thursday night, former WWE CEO Linda McMahon took part in a Republican Senate debate in Connecticut.

In addition to McMahon, the debate included attorney Brian Hill, attorney Peter Lumaj, former congressman Christopher Shays and attorney Kie Westby.

Westby attacking McMahon for her past with WWE by saing, “I have been in private practice for over 32 years, and during the course of that time, I have worked with dozens upon dozens of entrepreneurs. These are real jobs, not men bulked up on steroids or women prancing around in bikinis.”

McMahon responded that she earned her fortune as WWE CEO "the old-fashioned way" – “I’m very proud of earning my money the old-fashioned way, and putting people to work throughout the state."
