Conn. wrestling fans: We’re no lock for McMahon

HARTFORD, Conn. – Connecticut fans of World Wrestling Entertainment say Republican U.S. Senate candidate Linda McMahon’s ties to the company won’t guarantee their votes on Election Day.

Pro wrestling fanatics in Hartford on Saturday said the former WWE CEO’s campaign has no bearing on their enjoyment of the WWE. The company was in Hartford’s XL Center for Fan Appreciation Day.

McMahon is running against Democratic state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal for the seat of retiring Democratic U.S. Sen. Christopher Dodd. A recent poll showed Blumenthal leading McMahon.

WWE representatives say the weekend show wasn’t about rallying voters. They say it was held to thank fans for supporting the company despite what they call unfair attacks on its image from state Democrats and the media.
