WWE: Congress/Vince McMahon ‘war of words’ rumbles on

The war of words continues between Nebraska Congressman Lee Terry and Vince McMahon. McMahon responded to Terry’s comments earlier in the week that he flipped his finger to Congress for no-showing Wednesday’s Congressional hearing.

Rep. Terry told the Omaha World-Herald that he was not backing down from his comment towards McMahon, especially because McMahon’s excuse for no-showing was because of his attorney Jerry McDevitt unavailable to make the hearing.

Terry said, "He probably has more than one attorney, so it sounded pretty hollow," He added, "There’s no doubt that the entertainment factor is that they are physically huge freaks that’s part of the show, so there is kind of a belief that steroids are very ubiquitous in the wrestling entertainment industry."

WWE spokesman Gary Davis told the publication that Terry’s comments "represent stereotypical assumptions made by people who don’t follow professional wrestling.”
