The Courant has an article up looking at how Rob Simmons has been attacking Linda McMahon and her political campaign over the use of the “Eugene” character in WWE.
Ed Patru, a spokesman for the McMahon campaign, wrote:
“Rob Simmons indicates once again that he doesn’t understand how to separate fact from fiction. In the soap opera world of WWE, the character ‘Eugene’ was developmentally disabled, but rather than the beaten down, pathetic character that Rob presents, Eugene was treated via scripting like all WWE superstars with no special privileges. He competed in the ring or in a steel cage, sometimes winning, but often losing as an underdog. In the end, in spite of any disability, he was victorious and became a hero. Rather than a pathetic character, he was inspirational.”
