Donald Trump is making headlines all over the world for what he is saying during the Republican Party presidential primaries, and it is quickly turning the race for the Republican Party's nominee for President of the United States into something straight out of WWE.

Trump has a rich history with the WWE, one that spreads back all the way to when he hosted back-to-back WrestleMania events, WrestleMania IV in Atlantic City, New Jersey in March 1988, and WrestleMania V at Trump Plaza in the same city in April 1989.

Since then, the WWE Hall of Famer has made several appearances in the company which many fans will remember. Here are Donald Trump's five most memorable appearances in the WWE.

5. Jesse Ventura "The Body" Interviews Trump At WrestleMania XX

Looking back on this interview, it's quite ironic as to how things have changed.

Ventura interviewed Trump at WrestleMania XX back in March 2004, where he was asked what WrestleMania meant to him, to which he praised Vince McMahon's work. Jesse, who served as the 38th governor of Minnesota from 1999 to 2003, also asked Donald if he would support him if he got back into politics and ran for president, to which he said 100 percent.

The former wrestler has already said he doesn't support what Trump has said during his presidential campaign, giving his support to Democrat Bernie Sanders instead. Oh how times have changed.

4. Trump gives money to WWE fans

This is what kicked off Trump's most memorable time in the WWE. Back in January 2007, Vince McMahon hosted a "Fan Appreciation Night". The WWE Chairman was upstaged by the businessman when he decided to give fans free money, Vince McMahon's money, which rained down on them from the ceiling.

This paved the way for the Battle of The Billionaires between Trump and McMahon at WrestleMania 23 less than three months later, which was one of the main rivalries of the event alongside John Cena vs Shawn Michaels, and Batista vs The Undertaker.

3. Trump and the Boogeyman

Waiting backstage in his locker room for his Battle of The Billionaires clash against McMahon, Trump had a bizarre encounter by none other than The Boogeyman, who started to recite the "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" nursery rhyme to him.

Not scared at all, Donald stayed in place and blasted orders at The Boogeyman for food. Weird.

2. Trump shaves Vince McMahon's head

At the Battle of the Billionaire's contract signing, the rules for Trump and McMahon's clash at WrestleMania 23 were set. Bobby Lashley would represent Donald and Umaga would wrestle on behalf of Vince in their match, with the winning billionaire shaving the loser's head.

With Stone Cold Steve Austin as the special guest referee, Lashley won the match after a Stunner from Austin and a Spear on Umaga, meaning Vince had to shave his head which made Trump very happy.

1. Stone Cold gives stunner to Trump

After he won the battle against McMahon, Trump celebrated in the usual Stone Cold way, with some beers.

However, all didn't end well for Donald, as he was then on the receiving end of a Stunner by Austin himself, much to the approve on the WWE Universe in attendance at WrestleMania 23. Terrible job of selling it as well.
