Former WWE Wrestler Goes After McMahon

Republican Linda McMahon's senate candidacy in CT had been forged in no small part on the WWE wrestling empire she and her husband built, which itself is mourning the death of a 29-year-old wrestler Lance Cade from heart failure.
McMahon says she and the organization should not be held responsible.
A former WWE wrestler (and Harvard alum), Chris Nowinski, has a different view. In a television interview last night, Nowinski says wrestling organizers "have an environment that is absolutely unsafe to work in that ring. They have no oversight over what actually happens in that ring. And they are encouraging steroid use."
Nowinski also said McMahon's comment about maybe having met the now-deceased wrestler only once was, "kicking dirt on the guy's grave."
