Candidates send messages to 'Raw'

What’s the next best thing to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton settling their differences once and for all on a wrestling mat?

Appearing in specially taped messages during World Wrestling Entertainment’s “Monday Night Raw” cablecast, it would seem.

Having declined WWE’s invitation for a smackdown, the two Democratic contenders agreed to tape special messages for the “Raw” aud. WWE then also reached out to presumptive GOP presidential nominee John McCain.

All three candidates were set to appear in their own respective tapings that were to run during the special three-hour cablecast of “Raw” on the USA Network on Monday night, the eve of today’s Pennsylvania Democratic primary.

“In particular, Sen. Clinton and Sen. Obama will be appealing for votes from WWE fans in Pennsylvania, where they are locked in a tight primary battle,” WWE announced Monday.
