Home » WWE News » Jesse Ventura Explains Why Vince McMahon Hasn’t Spoken To Him Since 2010

In his latest interview with CYInterview.com, Jesse Ventura discussed numerous political, entertainment and wrestling topics among other things. Speaking with Chris Yandek and Jay Bildstein, the former Governor of Minnesota says Vince McMahon got mad at him because he wouldn’t support Linda McMahon’s failed United States Senate run in 2010. He hasn’t spoken to Vince since.

“I haven’t spoken to Vince since he got mad at me ‘cause I wouldn’t endorse Linda for the senate…He got mad at me because I was on Good Morning America or something and they asked me would you support Linda McMahon? And I said no. But let me explain, I don’t support any Democrats or Republicans. She’s running as a Republican and I don’t support anyone from those two parties no matter who they are and so it was nothing personal against Linda, but Vince got real mad at me that I said that on national TV, but he should’ve known better.”

Governor Ventura supports former Governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson in the 2012 Presidential Elections. Mr. Johnson is the Libertarian candidate and will be on the ballot in all 50 states:

“I will fully support Governor Johnson. I know him. We were Governors at the same time. He is a terrific man. He’s left the Republican Party because he sees what a farce they are and I urge everybody that reads this book vote for Gary Johnson for president. Don’t vote for Democrats or Republicans. Vote for Governor Johnson.”

    @Unique and CC
    I only know about wwe from what i read on the dirtsheets, and from what i’ve read, it’s not very good. the low ratings speak for themselves.

  • barry horowitz

    @ ant and Sym, Sym theres this thing called google try fucking using it, and ant jesse wasnt just a commentator he was also a wrestler although relatively briefly. you guys both need wrestling educations.

  • King Albert

    Jesse is a retarded mofo, i’ll knife the cunt in a heartbeat.

  • ant

    @SYM former commentator he used to commentate with vince mcmahon back in the day and hes a big conspiracy theorist too i actually liked that show he had on tru tv but anyways yeah and hes also a former governor

  • SYM

    Can someone explain who jeese ventura? Is ? A former ring announcer? Manager?

  • CC

    @Unique. I was about to say the same thing. I remember a guy who used to post on a message board I used to visit a few years ago constantly saying he no longer watched WWE, but used to come on regularly slating things in WWE that you could only know if you watched it.

  • Unique

    @paul E
    How do you know if you haven’t watched it in such a ‘long’ time???

  • scooter

    So it had nothing to do with the fact he pubicly trashed the WWE a week after hosting raw?

  • Paul E Not-so-Dangerously


    I stopped watching WWE a LONG time ago. It’s been garbage since the Attitude era ended and it’s been getting worse over the past four years.

  • Stone Cold Truth

    Jesse is right when he says that both parties are bought and paid for my the same interests. That’s why nothing ever changes. I can’t wait to see who wins in November. Our choices are Obamney or Robama.

    As for Linda. If she wins, she’ll just become another Status Quo Politician.

  • mark

    yet another story why Vince should just hang it up and let HHH take over.

  • JAck45

    So over hearing about little girls getting their knickers in a knot over something they read about on a dirtsheet.

    Honestly if people are so butthurt over Vince and his actions, stop watching his product then!
    Complaining on here wont solve anything and wastes every ones time.

  • CM Mark

    Oh god forbid someone doesn’t do EXACTLY waht King Vince wants.

  • William

    I will vote for who I want to vote for, not because Jesse Ventura told me to vote for somebody!!!!

  • “Bad Man” Bigelow


  • Stevie P

    TBH, I wouldn’t want his support anyways. Dude is crazy.
