Donald Trump is a familiar name in the WWE arena. Despite his political affiliation, he has always been a professional wrestling admirer. His relationship with WWE started back in 1988, when WWE advertised the Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey [one of Donald Trump’s hotels] at WrestleMania 4.
After that, the relationship went on; Trump even took part in the Battle of the Billionaires at WrestleMania 23. In the Battle of the Billionaires, Bobby Lashley represented the former US president, whereas his opponent, Umaga, was on Vince McMahon‘s side. As Lashley secured the victory, the then-WWE president had to shave his head.
But it appears that Trump’s sweet relationship with WWE is about to suffer a setback. Recently, Trump hired an outside team to search for classified items in his storage unit in West Palm Beach, Florida. According to The Washington Post, Donald Trump’s lawyers discovered professional wrestling belts in storage.
A person who is related to the storage unit confirms that incident and also testifies that the Trump team has no idea about these materials.
“It was suits and swords and wrestling belts and all sorts of things. To my knowledge, he has never even been to that storage unit. I don’t think anyone in Trump world could tell you what’s in that storage unit.”
This search is part of an allegation that Trump mishandled classified documents during his tenure as president. Besides these all-random things, the search party discovered two more items marked as classified in it, and with the help of Trump’s lawyer, the associated party has turned them over to the FBI.
Now that Trump has neglected those two professional wrestling belts, there is a chance the relationship might get broken, but we have to wait and see when the former US president will return to the WWE arena.
