The Chairman Shows the Money
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. -- Mr. McMahon could have just showed up with a giant novelty card or perhaps even a shiny balloon bouquet. But no, that wouldn't be the WWE Chairman's style. Instead, he brought $1 million of his own money to the Rabobank Arena to show his appreciation to loyal Raw viewers.
In front of an eager crowd, Mr. McMahon announced the beginning of "McMahon's Million Dollar Mania" sweepstakes.
"Maybe I'm a little eccentric, or maybe I just want to attract more viewers," explained the Chairman, who also spoke about how WWE fans represent "Americana" and how "snobs don't understand that."
During his speech, the Chairman also described how viewers could capture a share of his fortune. He explained that, to win, viewers will be required to register their name, address and phone number by following the proper links on WWE.com. Once they've done that, assuming they're 13 years of age and older and are citizens of the United States, they're eligible.
Contestants will then simply have to watch Monday Night Raw or check with WWE.com to learn the password needed to win. After that, they just need to make sure they're available to answer the phone at the number they submitted between the hours of 9 p.m. ET and 11:15 p.m. ET. If their number is dialed, they will be asked to supply the winning password in order to collect their share of Mr. McMahon's $1 million.
The fact that WWE employees are ineligible to win didn't stop both Superstars and Divas alike from admiring the cold, hard cash as they made their way to the ring. Even Cryme Tyme scoped out the greenback bundles, but Shad & JTG were quickly scared off by the vigilant security.
Unlike Cryme Tyme, you can win your share of the money fair and square by following Mr. McMahon's easy instructions and registering to win today on WWE.com. Good luck!
