Chris Christie and Stone Cold Steve Austin: Same Beast

Linda McMahon has a political crush on Governor Chris Christie, but that's not so surprising. His heft and verbal ferocity are reminiscent of a certain WWE star

Two years ago, former World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) chief executive Linda McMahon hoped to represent Connecticut in the U.S. Senate. But despite having spent $100 million of her own money, she was unable to purchase a seat—an amazing feat in a state where people play polo without a sense of irony.

Unable to gain entry into the upper chamber, she has since changed gears. She and her husband, Vince, the current CEO of WWE, have put roughly $1 million toward Republican super PACs and national candidates this year—mostly in her name. And according to Politico, she’s especially enamored with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. No wonder: Christie’s rhetorical style is less Abraham Lincoln and more professional wrestler.

You might say that Chris Christie is the Stone Cold Steve Austin of American politics. So for your viewing pleasure, we provide a side-by-side comparison of the two:
