Donald Trump Buys WWE Monday Night Raw
McMahon sold the WWE Raw franchise to Trump despite his personal misgivings about Trump himself. No doubt, McMahon will not be happy not that Donald Trump owns Raw.
Trump appeared on the big screen during the WWE Raw broadcast and announced that one of his first actions of new WWE Raw owner was to make the next Raw broadcast commercial-free.
This isn't Trump's first appearance with the WWE, having been a part of WrestleMania 23. During the pay-per-view extravaganza, Trump took part in the Battle of the Billionaires, where Trump's fighter Bobby Lashley took on McMahon protege Umaga. Stone Cold Austin served as the referee. Lashley ended up winning the fight; afterward Trump and Lashley shaved McMahon's head. Austin then performed a Stone Cold Stunner on Trump.
For our money though, Trump's strongest connection to the squared circle is that he seems to have based much of public persona on former WWE legend Ted DiBiase aka The Million Dollar Man. The dishevelled patch of hair on Trump's head is also oddly reminiscent of George "The Animal" Steele's back.
