    • Lee

  • fan

    instead of blasting WWE for it’s motives for helping, how about applaud that they are? The people in t hose areas are getting help!!! It doesn’t matter what t heir reasons for doing it are!!! I am damn sure those people affected by Sandy don’t care what their motives are just t hat t hey are getting help!!!

      The people that have been homeless for the past 6 months and have been living in transitonal housing are not getting help from WWE. Because the actual organizations that help with those types of issues use the money for rebuilding homes, apartment complexes, and places for people to live again. Being homeless sucks but so does not having people who can help you move from transitional housing to your apartment complex again and move your stuff out of storage to your new apartment type thing.

      • Rebel Youth Oi

        Randy Orton being married to Samantha Speno and having a daughter Alanna really f**king hatefully and wrongfully SUCKS!!!! How come Randy Orton has to put up with things like doing gimmick matches and how come other guys in WWE have to and are encouraged to have to go along with that f**king unfair, unjust crap that some morons call “entertainment” anyway??!!!
