The event, dubbed "Watergate" after the hotel, was the biggest political scandal to hit the United States in recent memory. As a result virtually every political scandal that has happened since has had the suffix "-gate" applied to its name. Even scandals that aren't political in nature have followed this naming convention (see TheOtherWiki for [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_scandals_with_%22-gate%22_suffix a proper list]]).

Incidentally, the "gate" in Watergate refers to the wooden toll gate marking the place where the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal empties into the Potomac River. The Hotel overlooks said gate.

** Daniel Bryan was fired. No one speculated that he wasn't. WWE announced it on their corporate site which is not used for Kayfabe. They also do not mess around with sponsor demands because that would cost them millions. Bryan said he was surprised by the firing and actually surprised Vince by not trying to fight it.
