As you may have heard, last week we received some blockbuster news out of the state Connecticut, when Linda McMahon, CEO of the WWE, World Wrestling Entertainment, announced that she was stepping down from her position in the company to run for Senate.

While McMahon announcing her candidacy was certainly a surprise, no one could have expected the shocking response from Senator Chris Dodd.  Take a look.

What is not shown in the video, is that moments after Dodd's speech, Linda's husband, Vince McMahon, clobbered Dodd from behind with a steel chair.  Linda then proceeded to drop the patented "Linda Lacerator" off the top rope, onto Dodd's prone body.

The confrontation serves as a precursor to Dodd and McMahon's upcoming "Hartford Hell In A Cell" match at the WWE's next pay-per-view entitled "Senate Smackdown".

What remains to be seen, is if Dodd's former tag team partner, Joe Lieberman, will come to Dodd's aide, or choose to side with the Republican McMahon.

Feel free to follow me on Twitter if you're someone who does that sort of thing.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
