Donald Trump is no stranger to the world of pro wresting. As a matter of fact, the former U.S. President has appeared on WWE television on multiple occasions, the most famous of which transpired at WrestleMania 23.

Trump and Vince McMahon famously butted heads in a “Battle of the Billionaires” match at WrestleMania 23. McMahon was represented by Umaga, whereas Trump acquired the services of Bobby Lashley.

The stipulation called for the loser’s head to be shaved bald. As predicted by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Vince McMahon took the loss and, as a result, got his head shaved bald by Trump, Lashley and special guest referee Steve Austin.

According to the Wall Street Journal, a person who reviewed Trump’s contract for his WrestleMania appearance stated that the real estate mogul won’t be getting his head shaved bald under any circumstances.

“Mr. Trump had his associates review the contract to ensure that under no circumstances would Mr. McMahon be allowed to shave his head, even if Mr. Trump’s wrestler dropped dead in the ring.”

WWE reportedly paid Trump $4 million for his appearance on the grandest stage of them all. The payments went to the Donald J. Trump Foundation and weren’t recorded as company expenses, per se.
