WWE to Glenn Beck:

Call Us Stupid ...

TO OUR FACE!!!

EXCLUSIVE



0222_wwe_glenn_beckThe WWE has a message for Glenn Beck -- if you're gonna talk smack about the organization ... BE A MAN ... AND DO IT IN PERSON!!

Beck has been on the attack against the "stupid wrestling people" at WWE after they introduced a new character named Zeb Colter -- who Beck described as "a villain who just happens to be a racist Tea Partier."

Beck -- clearly offended by the character -- went on a tear on his radio show recently ... blasting the WWE for mocking him ... and claiming the WWE is entertainment for dumb people.

Now, the WWE is firing back ... with Zeb and his pal Jack Swagger recording a new video statement for Beck, in which they break character and explain that what they do is simply harmless entertainment .. that's no different from "NCIS" and "Glee."

The WWE superstars also make a real challenge to Beck -- inviting the political commentator to address the "stupid" wrestling community live and directly on "Monday Night Raw."

Through a rep, Beck tells TMZ, "Unfortunately I am currently booked doing anything else."

Everyone is entertained by something. I don't see wrestling fans calling fans of other shows like The Real Housewives, My Life on the D-List, Stare at my ass for 60 minutes with Kim Kardashian low intelligence people.

People can enjoy whatever entertainment they want to enjoy. No need to belittle others for not gushing about your favorite show as much as you do.

Glenn Beck is a chicken ****. He can say stuff in his own studio, but nowhere else.

And those of you trashing WWE, I dare you to try to do what they do for 1 day. Not a single one of you could handle it. I speak from experience.

I'm a republican and I know Glenn Beck is an idiot. He thought the tv show Friends should have been taken off the air. He's all hot air and has been run off every news network out there. What a douche.

Controversy creates Cash.Both parties are experts at self promotion and gain. Beck loves the attention as does the WWE.

Glenn forgot to add this to his response to TMZ: "...trying to stretch my 15 minutes of fame by just a few more seconds."

And thus ends another day in the life of Glenn "Lonesome Rhodes" Beck....

What is really funny is that Zeb Colter kinda looks like that idiot Alex Jones with a mustache.

I must admit that Glenn Beck is sometimes pretty funny, especially how anyone on his show gets fined for using the President name. I just think when Glenn gets serious he sounds like a real dumbass.

I watch wrestling, I know its fake.. It says in the name WWEntertainment.. I'm a software engineer with my masters, come on, its just something to watch while I'm on my elliptical.. If anything, the wrestlers athleticism is fun to watch.. Relax people.

Kaaybe is dead but I really love how they explained to non-fans like Beck that they have characters and those characters set up the feuds and rile the audience up. I hope this explains to people who STILL think wrestling fans "believe it is all real" that we get it. We like the storylines and the athleticism and appreciate that we get both on one show.
