Believe it or not, Donald J. Trump will take office to become the 45th President of the United States on January 20th, 2017. The self-acclaimed real-estate tycoon defeated Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on a wave of populism despite claims of his campaign being based on racism, xenophobia, misogyny and fear of the other.
Despite this, Mr. Trump won the Presidential Election with a near clean sweep of the Electoral College despite losing the popular vote. Mr. Trump will also become the first President of the United States to appear inside a WWE ring.
Trump’s time in the WWE was certainly entertaining and led to some very good television. From his feud with Mr. McMahon to becoming a WWE Hall Of Famer, let’s take a look at Donald Trump’s top 5 moments in the WWE.
5: ‘The Donald’ meets The Boogeyman
It was Wrestlemania 23 and Donald Trump was backstage with former Miss USA Tara Conner. Trump was on the phone and complaining that Vince hadn’t shown him the courtesy of getting him any food or water when The Boogeyman appeared from behind the couch.
Boogeyman freaked the hell out of Tara Conner who ran away almost as soon as WWE’s resident worm-eater arrived. Trump, on the other hand, wasn’t flustered and told Boogeyman that he was hungry and ordered him to get food. Boogeyman continued his shtick before leaving as Trump ended his phone call after saying, “What a place this is, what a total mess.” So Trumpian.
