WWE issued a press release inviting political commentator Glenn Beck to appear on Monday Night RAW this coming Monday to address the WWE fans.
In a segment on his show TheBlaze TV yesterday, the former Fox News employee called wrestling fans “stupid people” and criticized the storyline involving Jack Swagger, Zeb Colter, and World Heavyweight champion Alberto Del Rio.
WWE wrote in the press release that just like TV shows and movies, WWE is in the entertainment business, creating fictional characters that serve as protagonists or antagonists.
“WWE is creating a rivalry centered on a topical subject that has varying points of view. This storyline was developed to build the Mexican American character Del Rio into a hero given WWE’s large Latino base, which represents 20 percent of our audience,” the press release reads.
Swagger was featured on theblaze.com in a couple of stories – including the one of his arrest – which you can see at http://bit.ly/YGl2jj.
