Congressman Asks Linda McMahon Question Every Wrestling Fan Wants To Know

"I want to address the 800-pound gorilla in the room that no one has asked you so far."

Rep. Rod Blum (R-Iowa) had one final question for former WWE CEO Linda McMahon on Wednesday, when the now-Small Business Administration head appeared before a congressional hearing.

“I want to address the 800-pound gorilla in the room that no one has asked you so far,” Blum said, with 45 seconds left of his questioning time.

“Why did it take John Cena so long to propose marriage to Nikki Bella?”

Cena surprised his longtime girlfriend, Nikki Bella, in the center of the ring with a proposal during WrestleMania 33 on Sunday.

McMahon smiled and said the congressman would have to ask Cena himself. 

President Donald Trump tapped the former GOP Senate candidate to run the Small Business Administration. McMahon co-founded the professional wrestling franchise WWE and was its CEO before launching a career in politics.
