Protestors Demand Donald Trump be Removed from WWE Hall of Fame

This past week, there were protestors outside of Barclays Center protesting that Donald Trump be removed from the WWE Hall of Fame. Barclays Center is where WWE has been the past four days for SummerSlam weekend.

Protestors said that they are tired of Donald Trump being associated with WWE and want him removed immediately. Trump is known by the WWE universe because he got involved in a match between Umaga and Bobby Lashley at WrestleMania 23 in 2007. Trump then received a stunner from Special Guest Referee Stone Cold Steve Austin.

This is likely just the beginning of the protests against the President. At this time, it is highly unlikely that the President will be removed from the Hall of Fame but this could change at anytime.


Due to the President’s close ties to the McMahon family, I think its safe to say he will stay in the Hall of Fame. Vince McMahon’s wife Linda actually serves as the Administrator of the Small Business Association in President Trump’s administration.

WWE put President Trump in the Hall of Fame for his involvement in a WrestleMania match. They didn’t put them in there because they liked him as a politician. So I don’t believe Trump should be removed from the Hall of Fame.

I’m not saying I like President Trump or dislike him. I just don’t think he should be removed from the WWE Hall of Fame based on his tenure as a President. Being in the Hall of Fame should be based on what you did for the company that’s inducting you.

However, 2017 has been a crazy year so who knows what could happen.
