Former WWE, ECW, and TNA star Rhyno filed to run as a State Representative for his district in Dearborn, Michigan this week. Rhyno recently spoke to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports about his campaign. Here are the highlights.
On Vince McMahon’s reaction: “I told Vince, ‘I hope I make you proud.’ He said, ‘You already have.’ He then followed up by saying if there was anything (WWE) can do to help to let them know. He didn’t ask what party I was running for or this and that. The McMahons’ love for their country is just contagious.”
On if his opponents will use pro wrestling against him: “I don’t think it will hurt me at all. I think candidates that run against me will try to make fun of it to discredit me so they can win the election, which is understandable. But I want to go out and discuss how we can make this state better, how we can make people’s lives easier and educate the kids.”
