The Tea Party (not tea-baggers…for now) are pissed that World Wrestling Entertainment is making fun of the Tea Party Conservative Movement with WWE Superstar Jack Swagger and Zeb Coulter..who??? From Infowars and Lunticoutpost:
” Former 80s wrestler and successful wrestling booker in Puerto Rico Dutch Mantell has a character that goes by the name of Zeb Coulter on WWE television. He serves as the mouthpiece for “The All American-American” Jack Swagger and espouses a strong belief in an America of yesteryear.
World Wrestling Entertainment has jumped on the bandwagon of demonizing Tea Party Americans as racists by creating a xenophobic character who espouses anti-immigrant rhetoric, as WWE commentators quip that he receives “fan mail” from Alex Jones, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.
Further, Swagger is scheduled to face World Heavyweight Champion Alberto Del Rio. Previously, Del Rio was portrayed as a villainous Mexican aristocrat but due to injuries and failed projections for two masked wrestlers in Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara, the need for a strong bankable Latino star was too strong and thus Del Rio became a good guy. Del Rio now wrestles for lower-middle class populations, presumably ethnic as well.”
I knew this was gonna happen! but the movement are too late to the bandwagon. WWE has been doing crap like this back when it was called “WWF”!
Then again, Why complain? It’s working for Jack Swagger’s Wrestling career. Before this episode of Monday Night Raw, there was a Pay-per-view event called the “Elimination Chamber”. Jack Swagger won that match and is Going to Wrestlemania 29 in New York/New Jersey to battle a Mexican Wrestler named Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship…I can see why the tea party is pissed…Why not for the WWE Championship?
It’s no big deal! It works! I love Jack Swagger! AND He’s going to Wrestlemania and BECOME World Heavyweight Champion!!!!
Jack Swagger will battle Alberto Del Rio for the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania 29! April 7, 2013!!!
