WWE Legend Asks Vince McMahon To Have Donald Trump Removed From Hall Of Fame

POLITICS - George Johnston Article


Donald Trump was a reality star before becoming the leader of the free world. His show entitled “The Apprentice” was a ratings success and had a huge viewing audience.

Trump has also participated in the world of pro wrestling from a business standpoint and also as an entertainer. During that time, his Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, New Jersey, hosted WrestleMania IV and WrestleMania V, making it the only place to serve as a venue for the promotion’s biggest annual pay-per-view for two consecutive years. He would also later participate at WrestleMania 23 in Detroit in front of one of the biggest crowds in history. Trump was also apart of one of the higher rated Monday Night Raw shows in history

A WWE legend however believes his history with WWE should not be honored anymore by the Vince Mcmahon led empire. In a series of tweets, WWE legend Mick Foley aired his thoughts on the unrest that took place on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, urging company chairman Vince McMahon to remove Donald Trump from the Hall of Fame for his perceived role in the protests. Both Trump and Foley were among the class of 2013’s inductees.

About an hour after tweeting footage that showed the riots on the steps of the Capitol and suggesting that the president was to blame for what was going on, Foley went straight to the point in a tweet he shared on Wednesday afternoon. Tagging McMahon in his post, the former world champion wrote that the WWE boss should consider “throwing this sorry son of a b*tch” out of the Hall of Fame.

In a subsequent post, Foley tweeted that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Vice President Mike Pence are seemingly “in the midst of a surreal babyface turn.” This was seemingly in reference to Pence’s refusal to overturn the results of last year’s presidential election, as well as McConnell’s similar stance on the matter. Most recently, the Kentucky senator suggested that democracy would “enter a death spiral” if Trump is able to successfully overturn the Electoral College’s results.

411Mania reported another wrestling legend in Dave Bautista wrote that the riots were more of an “attack” than a protest, while RETRIBUTION leader Mustafa Ali suggested that the steps of the Capitol “would be red” if people of color “[tried] to do the same thing.” Former WWE Women’s Champion Gail Kim also agreed with Foley, likewise tagging McMahon and asking him to “do it” by removing Trump from the Hall of Fame.
