– A fight broke out at a rally for Linda McMahon at the University of Connecticut on Monday. A McMahon supporter reportedly tore down a sign another student had that accused Linda of profiting from violence against women, a reference to her relationship with WWE.
Linda’s supporters and staff say the student shoved a female McMahon supporter, a claim the student denies. Linda was escorted away by staff while her supporters and opponents yelled at each other.
Linda’s opponents, members of UConn’s Violence Against Women Prevention Program, tried presenting her with a mock award that was a “Lifetime Achievement Award for promoting violence against women in WWE programming.” The group released a press release saying wanted to question Linda about WWE’s content and deliver her with their award but were refused on both.
Campus police were called to the scene but at last word, no arrests were expected.
