WWE, the company run by CT GOP Senate candidate Linda McMahon is pushing back against statements from a former wrestler who accused the organization of lacking protective oversight for its employees. The former wrestler, Chris Nowinski, also took a shot at McMahon for saying she probably had only one passing conversation with a 29-year-old wrestler who recently died of heart failure. Nowinski said McMahon's comments equated to kicking "dirt" on the now-deceased wrestler's grave.
Today, WWE (not McMahon's campaign, but close enough) sent out a statement questioning Nowinski's credibility.
Among their statements:
Mr. Nowinski states, “They have an environment where it's absolutely unsafe to work in that ring." "They have no oversight into what actually happens in the ring.” If so, then why would Mr. Nowinski have ever wanted to be a part of such an environment?
