Exhibit A: Donald throws down with the one percent
Long before Trump set out to gamble with America’s future, he was caught up in a more personal wager opposite WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. It was dubbed the “Battle of the Billionaires,” and took place during WrestleMania 23 in April 2007. If Trump’s muscle, WWE superstar Bobby Lashley, could take out Mr. McMahon’s behemoth goon Umaga, America would watch as Vince shaved that controversial mop off Donald’s top. (And, as with any bet worth its nine figures, vice versa.) But as you can see 55 seconds into this clip, once McMahon began taunting guest referee and quintessential blue-collar everyman “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Trump’s fists began flying in solidarity, even if his locks ultimately remained in place.
