Yesterday’s feature “Survivalist Series: WWE vs. Glenn Beck,” by Grantland contributor The Masked Man, takes a close look at the feud between the conservative media personality and the wrestling mega-business. The piece examines the WWE’s history of using racially-charged storylines with a focus on the current characters Swagger and Colter and their conflict with Beck.
The Masked Man asks the question: could McMahon and Beck be conspiring to combine pro wrestling and political radio into an unholy amalgam of lowbrow hucksterism? You can view the entire feature by clicking on the above link.
The Masked Man (@AKATheMaskedMan) is David Shoemaker, author of the "Dead Wrestler of the Week" column.
