MAN OF THE PEOPLE: President Trump Expected to Appear on WWE SmackDown Live in October

The former star of WrestleMania is likely to make a return to the world of sports entertainment.

Published

President Donald Trump is scheduled to return to WWE programming, over a decade after he appeared at WrestleMania 23 participating in an iconic billionaire hair vs. hair match with WWE Chairman Vince McMahon.

Trump is set to appear on WWE SmackDown Live in October. This will help kick off the show after the television program moves to FOX, who acquired the brand for $1 billion dollars in 2018 to air on Friday nights.

FOX reportedly floated the idea of incorporating Trump into their first broadcast of SmackDown Live. According to internal e-mails and documents, they have been “talking to Vince” and prodding McMahon to “make the call” to Trump to finalize the deal for him to appear on the program.

“FOX have asked for Trump so I’m trying to write something short and easy for him that makes him look good. Vince doesn’t like us to say anything bad about Trump so I’m just doing the best I can,” a member of the WWE creative team told Sportskeeda, adding fuel to the speculation that Trump will appear on SmackDown.

Trump has a great relationship with McMahon and the WWE going back many decades. Trump hosted WrestleMania IV and V in 1988-1989 at the Historic Atlantic City Convention Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey, and appointed his wife Linda to a role as Administrator of the Small Business Administration (SBA). She now works on a political action committee to ensure Trump’s presidential victory in 2020.

“She has been a superstar,” Trump said of Linda McMahon. “She’s going to go and help us with a very, very important year and a half that we have coming up,” he added. “And the re-election as they call it. And we look forward to that.”

“I wish to thank the President and I will continue to be a strong advocate for him and his policies,” Linda McMahon said as she departed the SBA.

When McMahon and Trump have appeared on WWE programming together in the past, the results have been incredibly entertaining:

If Trump does end up appearing on an edition of SmackDown Live, it will mark the first time that a sitting President of the United States has ever appeared on a pro wrestling show. It would be yet another milestone that Trump could add to his already massive list of achievements.

‘WHAT A DISASTER:’ Iowa Caucus Results Delayed in Vote Count Catastrophe

The nation is left with more questions than answers on the night of the Iowa Caucus.

Published

on

The Iowa Caucus was intended to kick off the Democratic Presidential primary by highlighting candidates with a credible shot of winning the nomination.

Instead, the first-in-the nation caucus seems to be more representative of the Democratic Party’s incompetence, after results for the caucus are delayed for an unforeseen “quality assurance” tabulation process. The development has many election hawks and Democrats howling mad, with many suspecting the DNC is dipping into its bag of old tricks with the hopes of blunting or preventing a Bernie Sanders victory in the caucus.

There are many reports of caucus precinct coordinators being totally ignored when trying to report the results of their local caucuses to the Iowa Democratic Party. At least one caucus organizer was outright hung up on by the party when he called in to report results- while speaking to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer live on air.

The mass of confusion is being traced to the failure of an app designed to report results. Iowa Democrats simply explained the unusual delay as the result of “inconsistencies,” offering little to no in depth explanation for what seems to be third world election practices.

Although we’re inexplicably left without any vote tallies the night of the election, exit polls and crowd sizes suggest that polling frontrunner Sanders has a strong chance to win. Pete Buttigieg also appears set for a strong second place performance. Sanders expressed confidence in a strong performance when addressing his supporters in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden appears slated for an embarrassment, outright failing to advance to the “viable” stage in many precinct and regional caucus. It’s not entirely impossible that Biden finishes fourth in the primary, a surprise development that would leave the candidate many assumed to be an easy frontrunner for the Democratic nomination struggling as he lags to New Hampshire and later primary states.

MSNBC talking heads could be overheard referring to the caucus as a “disaster” in a some capacity in leaked audio.

As of late Monday night, the Iowa Democratic Party is yet to report any vote results, let alone declare a winner. Big League Politics is continuing to monitor the situation.
