Upcoming WWE Attitude Era DVD Under Fire


World Wrestling Entertainment’s “attitude era” has gotten plenty of unwanted attention since Linda McMahon, whose family owns the Stamford-based wrestling empire, became interested in politics.

McMahon has run on her experience as a “job creator” and used her wrestling fortune to fund her campaigns.

Although WWE programming is today family-friendly and rated either PG or G, her critics love alerting voters to the period about a decade ago when the company’s scripts contained plenty of sex, violence and other material that could turn off some voters.

Now in this 3-Disc DVD set, fans can own all the infamous moments from this controversial and revolutionary era that redefined sports e
