I just looked up briefly “Where do wrestlers fall on the political spectrum” and it’s not even fucking close. Mick Foley, possibly CM Punk, and Jim Cornette vs. Pretty much everybody whose ever put on a pair of tights. The Ultimate Warrior was a well known insane conservative, and Kane is apparently a big ol Libertarian.
I saw on this one link, someone said he got in a political conversation with Val Venis, the porn star wrestler, and it was a huge mistake.
Someone made a pretty good point. A lot of the most influential wrestlers, people like Million Dollar Man, people like Sting, are born again Christians, and they go around the back trying to get a hold of as many of the young bucks as possible. I’m not saying that born again=Conservative, but it definitely means that in wrestling.
Mick Foley is a democrat if you people need a new dream boat.
In the 00’s, Master P supported a group of No-Limit Soldiers who also wrestled. The WCW matched them up with a group of white boys (Including LGP favorite Mr. Perfect), called the West Texas Rednecks. Their angle was basically Rap is Crap, and they’d always come around and shit on Rap music for a solid thirty minutes before some rap reject would come around and fight them. Like everything in the WCW at the time, it was fucking garbage, but the funny thing is, depending on where the event was held, you couldn’t tell if the No-Limit Soldiers or the West Texas Rednecks were the villains based on crowd response, and the WTR’s were clearly the bad guys.
