Before he was elected President of the United States, Donald
Trump entered another elite club when he was inducted into the WWE
Hall of Fame in 2013. Now,
various media outlets have reported
that Trump could make a
return to the world of wrestling with an appearance on WWE’s
when the show debuts on
Fox in October
. If true, it’s unclear whether the
commander-in-chief will actually appear in the ring
as he has done
in the past, or just show up in a pre-taped

A member of WWE’s creative team
that it was Fox executives who asked WWE
to get Trump on the show. “FOX have asked for Trump so I’m trying
to write something short and easy for him that makes him look
good,” the anonymous source told the website. “Vince doesn’t
like us to say anything bad about Trump so I’m just doing the best
I can.”

Trump is no stranger to the WWE. WrestleMania IV and V took
place at Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, and he’s been on Raw many
times. His most famous wrestling moment came in 2007, when he
picked Bobby Lashley to represent him at WrestleMania 23 in the
“Battle of the Billionaires: Hair vs. Hair match” against Vince
McMahon and his pick, Umaga.

The highlight of that match came after the pinfall, when Trump,
Lashley, and special referee “Stone Cold” Steve Austin shaved
McMahon bald. While the match was nothing spectacular, it did
feature the future president clotheslining Vince and throwing a few
half-assed punches at the WWE CEO.

Trump and the WWE have also been intertwined through politics in
recent years; Linda McMahon, formerly the WWE’s CEO, was part of
Trump’s cabinet, serving as Administrator of the Small Business
Administration before
stepping down
in April to become chairwoman of America First
Action, a pro-Trump Super PAC (a political action committee with
the goal of getting the president re-elected). Though Trump’s
appearance on WWE TV is purely a rumor at this point, their history
together certainly gives it some credibility.
