Sportskeeda have quoted one member of the WWE creative team to suggest that this concept may have an actual possibility.
“FOX have asked for Trump so I’m trying to write something short and easy for him that makes him look good. Vince doesn’t like us to say anything bad about Trump so I’m just doing the best I can.”
Donald Trump and the McMahon Family
Vince McMahon and Donald Trump have a long and storied history. The two billionaires go long back. Trump sponsored WrestleMania IV and V in 1988-1989 when WWE were in dire need of financial support. He was also present at WrestleMania 20, and, most notably, participated in a feud with Vince McMahon in the mid-2000s that culminated with a hair vs. hair match fought by Umaga and Bobby Lashley on their behalf at WrestleMania 23. Following that match, he was even the on-screen owner of WWE for a very brief period.
Vince McMahon’s wife, Linda, served as the Administrator of the Small Business Administration on the president’s staff. She is now the Chairman of America First Action, a pro-Trump Super PAC.
Given, Donald Trump’s close ties with the McMahon family, it is not too out there to see him walk down a WWE ramp once again.
