US Congressman Tim Ryan of Ohio decided to leave last night’s State of the Union address early, and then decided to take a shot at pro-wrestling, just because he was feeling mean.
Rep. Tim Ryan: “I just walked out of the #StateOfTheUnion. I’ve had enough. It’s like watching professional wrestling. It’s all fake.”

Unsurprisingly, this got a bit of a reaction from the wrestling community, including several WWE wrestlers.
As a fan of pro wrestling, politics & Congressman Ryan, I see many similarities between the jobs we so passionately do…
