Football News

Donald Trump is in the middle of a highly publicized campaign to become the Republican nomination in the next Presidential election.

Don't worry though, we're not going to talk about primary numbers and foreign policy, instead we're talking about Trump's infamous stint working with the WWE.

On the latest episode of The Steve Austin Show, 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin talked about working with Donald Trump at WrestleMania 23.

Trump Stunner

Austin was the special guest referee in the "Battle of the Billionaires" hair vs. hair match between Trump, who was in Bobby Lashley's corner, and Vince McMahon, who was siding with Umaga. 

After the match had finished, which Trump won and forced McMahon to have his head shaved, Austin hit the billionaire with a Stone Cold Stunner, which he revealed Trump wasn't originally supposed to take.

According to Austin, Trump was not originally booked to take the Stone Cold Stunner, but McMahon put Trump on the spot by asking whether Trump would take the Stunner shortly before the match was to begin.

"And, boy, right then, Donald Trump's number one advisor, his right hand guy at the time, gave him every single reason why he does not need to take the Stunner," Austin revealed.

"Hey, man, this is not a good idea; you don't need to do it; you're doing enough by being here.' Donald looked at Vince and he goes, 'sure, I'll take it.'"

Awful Sell

Austin said he briefly explained how to do the Stunner to Trump before the match and the rest is WrestleMania history, even if it was the worst Stunner of All-Time, and a sell job that made it look like Austin missed.

"He was a standup guy to me and I always appreciated him taking that bump because he didn't have to," Austin added.
