Superstars weigh in on Spitzer
Over the past several weeks, the Eliot Spitzer prostitution ring scandal has been all over the news and covered by every media outlet imaginable. Even with a new governor in New York -- and his own issues to boot -- there's no relief in sight for the former executive official, especially with supsicious money transfers cropping up everywhere. Although we hate to kick a guy when he's down, WWE.com spoke with several Superstars for their opinions on the shamed former governor:
WWE.com: What were your initial reactions to the Spitzer scandal?
Mark Henry: My deal with the governor is how stupid he was. I mean, if you're going to do something like that, be smart enough to have somebody do that for you. You can say, "Hey man, we need to set up a little party with some girls," and let someone else do it.
Nunzio: He's a hypocrite. For years, Spitzer was trying to take people down on a lot of different things, and then he turns around and boom! He gets caught with a hooker. And how his wife can stand next to him.... I give her a lot of credit. If it were my wife, she'd be kicking me in the ass.
Zack Ryder: The girl was smoking hot, so I can't say that I blame him. I would have definitely interacted with her, except I wouldn't have had to pay for it.
Matt Striker: The moral to the story is simple: If you want your children to grow up in a country that is firm with morals and ethics, then you will vote Republican, because when you vote Democrat, look what happens.
WWE.com: What do you think the future holds for Spitzer and his infamous call-girl?
Nunzio: I think his career is done. I don't think he'll ever fight out of this. No one will trust him.
Henry: He'll be on Dr. Phil and CNBC, you know, talking about how he wants people to "clean up" like he has.
Striker: She's a beautiful young lady, but what is it about her that made her famous? Was it her mind? No. Was it her heart? No. Was it her mouth, and th fact that she told people about it? Yes. And again, this is the problem with the media today: We celebrate immorality.
Ryder: She'll probably get her own reality TV show.
