According to MyFoxNY.com, McMahon actually spent $15.7 million of her personal money on the campaign, which would bring the total thus far to approximately $66 million.
After the race was called Tuesday night, theDemocratic Senatorial Campaign Committeeimmediately attacked McMahon over her WWE past.
“Linda McMahon is a greedy CEO who made millions marketing sex and violence to little kids, all at the expense of the health and safety of her own employees,” said Executive Director Guy Cecil. “Everything about McMahon’s record, principles and agenda prove that she is wrong for Connecticut. There isn’t enough money in the world to convince Connecticut voters otherwise.”
This goes with what we’ve been exclusively reporting about mid-carders being frustrated with the way they are being treated and is also one of the main reasons why they’re speaking up now. The negative media will likely continue in the coming weeks as WWE tries to defend against these claims. As we noted, WWE plans to “fix” the Brazilian tour bonuses after what they are claiming was a “clerical error”. Those checks are expected to be re-issued in the coming days. We hope to have the new figures soon once talents receive their checks.
