Linda McMahon and Girls Gone Wild: The WWE Pay-Per-View Extravaganza

Connecticut GOP Senate candidiate Linda McMahon takes heat for her time as CEO of World Wrestling Entertainment, but she says her skills will help her in office. For example, WWE once partnered with Girls Gone Wild for a pay-per-view boobfest.

Back in 2003, with McMahon at the helm of WWE, the wrestling powerhouse teamed up with pervy ex-convict Joe Francis to produce a pay-per-view event for the ages, featuring female wrestlers and Girls Gone Wild girls getting raunchy. Francis at the time said he'd also appeared in a WWE "Raw" event, and that his exploitative empire has "an incredible partnership with the WWE. They own the pay-per-view space, so there's no better people to be in business with." Francis also told a Texas newspaper at the time:

It's real girls and there's nothing else like it. I like girls and I really like them naked and I thought other guys would, too."

Smart guy. And McMahon saw an opportunity in appealing to undersexed young men with disosable incomes. Win-win! McMahon's campaign spokesman directed Politico's Maggie Haberman to the WWE for comment.
