The exit of two candidates from Connecticut’s GOP Senate primary shows what former WWE head Linda McMahon and her money are capable of.
And as she establishes herself as a front-runner, her opponents will increasingly focus on where that money came from.
The WWE isn’t far removed from a congressional investigation into its ties to steroids, and the sport has been marked in recent years by the deaths of a number of its most well-known superstars.
In a lengthy interview with The Hill on Monday, McMahon acknowledged that steroids were revealed to be a significant problem when WWE relaunched its testing program in 2006. But the recently departed CEO, who is married to current WWE Chairman Vince McMahon and still talks as if she is running the company, said the sport never relied on drugs for its bottom line.
