Donald Trump Could Make A 'Stunning Return' To WWE On SmackDown Live
| Last updated
US President Donald Trump could make a sensational appearance inside a WWE ring again, according to shocking new reports.
SmackDown Live is currently broadcasted every Tuesday night on the USA Network and will be switching to Friday night on Fox in October.
And part of the $1bn that Fox paid to secure the rights for the show could include a potential cameo from Trump on the first episode.
According to Sportskeeda, the American network has reportedly been in talks with WWE and CEO Vince McMahon about getting the US leader to return.
It's unclear if the polarising billionaire, 73, has been approached with the offer, but WWE is apparently wasting no time in preparing for his appearance.
A member of the SmackDown creative team told Sportskeeda: "Fox have asked for Trump, so I'm trying to write something short and easy for him that makes him look good.
"Vince [McMahon] doesn't like us to say anything bad about Trump so I'm just doing the best I can."
Trump has had a longstanding relationship with McMahon and WWE, with the Trump Plaza in New Jersey hosting WrestleMania IV in 1988 and WrestleMania V in 1989.
And 'The Donald' also took part in a 'Battle of the Billionaires' storyline with the WWE boss at WrestleMania 23 in 2007.
The hair vs hair match had Donald Trump in the corner of current superstar Bobby Lashley while McMahon was in the corner of ex-WWE wrestler Umaga.
And McMahon's arch-rival, Stone Cold Steve Austin, was refereeing the match.
Lashley picked up the win over Umaga and McMahon was held down in the centre of the ring as his head was shaved.
Trump would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013 and Vince's wife, Linda McMahon, served in his cabinet as the Administrator of the Small Business Administration from 2017 to 2019.
Should WWE bring Trump back?
