GREENWICH, Conn. -- Happy Birthday To Greenwich’s Linda McMahon!
Linda Marie McMahon, who has owned a home in Greenwich, turns 65 on Friday. Linda, born October 4, 1948, in New Bern, N.C., is an American professional wrestling magnate and a perennial candidate for the Republican Party.
Linda started her career as a receptionist at the corporate law firm of “Covington & Burling” and learned a great deal about intellectual property right. She had little interest in professional wrestling and developed her career in WWE with her husband Vince McMahon and the McMahon family name is now synonymous with the wrestling industry.
She occasionally made on-screen appearances, most notably in a wrestling feud with her husband which climaxed at WrestleMania X-Seven.
She left WWE in 2009 and was the 2012 Republican nominee for Connecticut's other Senate seat to replace retiring Senator Joe Lieberman in the general election in November 2012.
She continued to serve on the board of the Close Up Foundation, a nonprofit which offers youth field trips to Washington, D.C. and joined APCO Worldwide as a member of the firm's International Advisory Council (IAC).
