i just watched pro wrestling from a luxury suite...and found hope

The JMatt, courtesy of his employer, scored some free tickets to the fancy pants section of the RBC Center for tonight's taping of Monday Night RAW. Stay with me, though, because here's what I found interesting.

Before the show, the WWE ran a "famous people who have been on our show" video package that included the embarrassing appearances from earlier this year of presidential hopefuls John McCain and Barak Obama. McCain scored zero reaction, but the crowd popped pretty large for pre-taped Obama(it was even a better pop than video packages of rasslin' fan favorite John Cena and hometown favorite Jeff Hardy).

If the rasslin crowd is ignoring McCain and popping for Obama in this state, maybe North Carolina really is poised to go blue in November. Wouldn't that be great?
