I don't think they will be riding up on a mini-tank like those crazy renegades of Degeneration X did on Billionaire Ted and the WCW, but Vince McMahon and the WWE have dispatched a camera crew to Glenn Beck's studio to try to obtain a quote from the controversial, right-wing political commentator.
Glenn Beck, who is known for his conspiracy theories about President Barack Obama and the federal government while scribbling on a chalkboard, has recently taken aim at the WWE for what he says is an inaccurate depiction of the Tea Party as racists on the fringe of conservative politics. Of course, we're talking about Zeb Colter and Jack Swagger. Whether you believe that's true or not is your business.
Glenn Beck has stated that WWE's audience is nothing but "stupid wrestling people." Colter and Swagger, on behalf of WWE, responded with a five-minute promo/rebuttal to Glenn Beck's statements that portrayed the radical Republican supporter as out of touch with the TV audience, promoting the WWE's international viewership and the company's historic 20-year run of Monday Night Raw.
Tonight, don't be surprised if we get a Glenn Beck impersonato on an episode of Raw that should be building to WrestleMania. WWE likes to take aim at media icons that make public statements against the company. Think: Rosie O'Donnell. WWE is going to eat up this kind of coverage as it hope to drives ratings and mainstream news coverage.
