    No they wouldn't. They'd be mocking Beck for taking the bait.

    WWE loves this ****. It's got people talking about wrestling who aren't already wrestling fans for the first time in the while. Vince McMahon is (a mainstream) conservative, but he doesn't have any truck with the likes of Beck. And Beck is inadvertently helping McMahon get the Jack Swagger character over forty-five days before Wrestlemania.

    It's like Beck literally doesn't understand how the wrestling business works.

    Vince McMahon probably was only mildly at most involved in the characters, and the goal was not to get mainstream coverage. Politics has nothing to do with it, demographics does.

    And where did you get the stat about the politics of wrestling fans?

    The goal probably wasn't to get mainstream coverage at first, but now it definitely is. Swagger broke kayfabe in the response video to Beck and used his real name. You don't break kayfabe in the WWE without authorization from the top.

    And where did you get the stat about the politics of wrestling fans?
    It's anecdotal. I don't have a link to the poll, but in 2008 I recall seeing one that broke down the political affiliations of wrestling fans by demographic. The largest were white conservatives at something like 40%, and the second largest were Hispanics in the 20s. Take it with a grain of salt if you want, as I don't have it on hand.

    Vince knows what he does is fake.

    Beck still thinks what he does is real.

    This makes Vince the intellectual.

    You don't say much of anything without authorization. Breaking kayfabe is not that big a deal and hasn't been for many years. WWE does not really pretend to be anything but scripted entertainment. This is a minor opportunity, but won't have any significant impact on buy rates or ratings.

    It's possible but unlikely.

    Re: Glenn Beck is at war with World Wrestling Entertainment.

    The WWE has been building on its Hispanic base for the last decade, at least, with guys like Eddy Guerrero (RIP) and Rey Mysterio Jr. and Alberto del Rio who have all been World Champions. They tried to build Sin Cara up, who had been a huge star in Mexico as Mistico, but that endeavor has not been very successful. So the demographic of 20% could very well be legit.

    Re: Glenn Beck is at war with World Wrestling Entertainment.

    What is Beck a whiner of epic proportions, can I remember a few gimmicks of the past:

    The-Iron-Sheik.jpg

    NikolaiVolkoff.jpg

    Alberto+Del+Rio+3.jpg

    And then there are hated Sergeant Slaughter (with the Iron sheik), Million dollar man Ted DiBiasi, JBL, Wade Garret. Road Scholars, Christian, Muhammed Hassan, etc. etc.

    This kind of thing has always happened in the WWE/wrestling, Beck should stop whining about this because it is fake.
    Former military man (and now babysitter of Donald Trump) John Kelly, is a big loud lying empty barrel!
