Linda McMahon, wife of WWE honcho Vince McMahon (and she herself a former CEO of the WWE) lost her bid to the U.S. Senate in Connecticut this week. That in itself isn't really newsworthy. The fact that she went through 97-MILLION dollars in her failed attempt IS newsworthy!

Despite an overwhelmingly large Republican majority in the state, the Republican McMahon lost by a wide margin to Democrat Chris Murphy.

McMahon says she wasn't trying to buy her way into the Senate, but wanted to serve to bring a different voice and perspective to Washington.

Remember this election when your ticket to the next World Wrestling Entertainment event or the cost of the next Wrestlemania goes up dramatically.
