Linda McMahon: ‘The Consequences of Death Is a Very Sad Thing’

RICHARD BLUMENTHAL AT TONIGHT’S DEBATE WITH LINDA McMAHON:

I can’t believe that I just heard Ms. McMahon brag about this wellness policy at WWE. She requires all wrestlers to sign a death clause that absolves WWE of all responsibility if wrestlers are killed in the ring and if the company is at fault — absolves her company of all responsibility. That wellness policy is not working too well. There have been seven dead wrestlers since she started campaigning for this office. I would suggest some other policy might be advisable.

    She doesn’t care if it works well or not. She just wants to cover her ass and that of her company. It’s despicable and I feel it should be illegal for someone to insist on such a contractual clause. You could say it’s sort of their own fault, they could work somewhere else or something, but honestly that doesn’t wash with me. That doesn’t make what she’s doing right or moral. That doesn’t make what she’s doing okay. And it shouldn’t make what she’s doing understandable. This sort of thing doesn’t surprise me, but it does disgust me.
