Ding! Ding! Will Glenn Beck soon appear in the WWE squared circle?
On his TheBlaze TV show Thursday, the conservative commentator slammed the wrestling organization due to its portrayal of Zeb Colter, an overly patriotic grappler who Beck feels is "demonizing" the Tea Party.
"You're making a villain out of what?" Beck asked, adding that the company is alienating its fans: "Probably 80% of your audience who's tired as it is of being miscast? They're tired of this."
Beck went on to wonder: Has Vince McMahon been influenced by liberal billionaire George Soros?
"Did George Soros buy the WWE? I expect that from Hollywood, but I don't expect - if I'm getting my entertainment from somebody that I think is on my side - and I'm sorry. I just don't see a bunch of progressives going and buying their tickets to the WWE. Do you?"
In response to his rant, WWE executives have invite Beck to appear on Monday Night Raw, saying in a statement:
"WWE is giving Beck the opportunity to address our 14 million weekly viewers and our global fan base, as he believes we are offending our 'conservative' fans with this storyline."
Should Beck accept the offer?
