NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — World Wrestling Entertainment is doing its part to help the Tri-State Area. WWE is joining with New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Hollywood celebrities and professional athletes to launch Superstars for Sandy Relief. Fans can bid on hundreds of items in an online auction, including attending a NASCAR race with WWE superstar John Cena, meeting Tyra Banks on the set of “America’s Next Top Model,” or pitching entrepreneurial ideas to Mark Cuban. The auction begins Monday and closes April 9 on charitybuzz.com. Paul Levesque, executive vice president of talent and live events, better known in the ring as Triple H, says he can’t think of a better way to celebrate WWE’s annual WrestleMania event than using the group’s global reach to assist those in need.
I’ve said forever now that Chris Christie is the closest thing to a WWF wrestler in politics. When he was at the RNC last year I honestly thought I was watching Paul Bearer (may God rest his soul) cut a promo. He’s fat, loud, angry, and doesn’t give a fuck. He could probably quit this whole politics thing and go join the WWE and have much more success. Hey Chris! Nobody in the wrestling world asks if you’re too fat to get the job done! You’ll fit in perfect.
On the flip side you’ve got Vince McMahon – who was probably the closest thing to a sheisty politician in the WWF. I bet if he ran for office instead of his useless wife he could have been a Senator or whatever a long time ago.
So these two are like mirror images of each other. Either Chris Christie ditches politics for the WWF or Vince ditches wrestling for office. Either way, one of the greatest tag teams of all time.
