Peter Rugg, a blogger for The Pitch, a local Kansas City arts and entertainment newspaper, wrote yesterday about his experience the previous evening attending WWE’s Monday Night Raw. Rugg noted that during the show, “there were two touching tributes to the military men and women serving in the Middle East,” one of which came from former President Bush. And according to Rugg, once Bush appeared on the arena’s television screens, he received “thunderous boos”:
The mere sight of Bush elicited thunderous boos — even more jeering than the maniacal [WWE Wrestler] Randy Orton, who dropped Triple H’s wife, Stephanie, on her head and kissed her while a handcuffed Triple H could only watch. Then Orton hit him with a sledgehammer. I’m going to repeat that again, just to be clear: To wrestling fans, George W. Bush is worse than a sledgehammer molester.
