President-elect, Donald Trump, announced on Wednesday that he would be nominating pro wrestling magnate and former Senate candidate Linda McMahon to head the Small Business Administration.
Trump noted that McMahon had helped the WWE grow from a 13-person operation to a publicly traded global enterprise with more than 800 employees worldwide.
After the announcement was made, some of Linda's family and former WWE co-workers took to Twitter with their reactions.
Here comes the money!
Jim Ross spent many years as the McMahon's right hand.
This is the most excited JBL has sounded commentating on anything wrestling related in years.
Tommy Dreamer's reaction was predictably extreme!
Everybody knows I hate politics but @Linda_McMahon is a great person.? Tommy Dreamer (@THETOMMYDREAMER) December 7, 2016
She will make any job appointed to her better.
Vince should probably start by apologizing for trying to hit her over the head with a trashcan at Wrestlemania 17, but this was also nice.
We all know Stephanie will probably be President, one day, right?
Does Triple H mean Linda will bring in Hulk Hogan to run wild on big business tax loopholes?
Regardless of how the WWE feels about the nomination, this is likely the first time most wrestling fans will have ever been aware of who was in charge of the SBA. That has to count for something. I guess.
