Yes, WWE has found a new bad guy for fans to root against, ripped straight from yesterday’s headlines — a Tea Party character “with twisted values on what his country should look like, complete with a xenophobic and slightly racist manager named Zeb Colter.” Here’s the basic plot; try to follow along.

Yeah, the WWE is back to being racist. The Real American against the wealthy Mexican whose fighting for the poor.

The immigrants-draining-our-resources thing might make sense if the Mexican guy wasn't RICH though. #wwe

So the #wwe announcers just said Jack Swagger is like Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh. They had a Don't Tread On Me poster.

Wow, never thought that the @WWE would invoke the Tea Party into its shows, but that's what they did.

Only the @wwe can think a "tea party" wrestler 4 years late is a good idea.

For some, the years-late parody isn’t stale; it’s long overdue.
Yes, it took a pro-wrestling skit to show the Tea Party the error of their ways. Thanks, WWE!
