Throwback To The Time Trump And McMahon Had A 'Battle Of The Billionaires'

Donald Trump is the new president of the United States and it's only time that we remember the time when he was involved in a WWE storyline with fellow billionaire Vince McMahon.

The two had a big feud on WWE television which culminated in the match billed as 'the battle of the billionaires' at Wrestlemania 23.

Wrestling legend and a long-time nemesis of McMahon's, Stone Cold Steve Austin, was made special guest referee for the match, which saw McMahon and Trump each pick a competitor to fight for them.

McMahon went for the Samoan monster and Intercontinental Champion Umaga, while Trump had ECW Champion Bobby Lashle representing him.


As you can imagine, there were lots of shenanigans throughout the course of the match and at one point Vince's son Shane got involved.

Relive the encounter here with the following clip:

Like he did last night in the election, it was Trump who emerged victorious when his man Lashley pinned Umaga after a stunner from Austin and then a spear - leading to chairman Vince McMahon having his head shaved on the grandest stage of them all.


There were celebratory beers at the end of the match and the whole thing ended with the Texas Rattlesnake hitting a stunner on big Donald. Not many men can say that have stunnered the president, Steve Austin can.
