WWE is almost as much about the wrestler’s entrances as it is about the wrestling itself.
The music adds to the excitement for fans and last week when accepting the Republic nomination for the US Presidency race, Donald Trump took a leaf out of the WWE’s book as he entered the stage.
Trump came out in the shadows to his adoring fans to Queen’s ‘We are the Champions’ before slowly his face became visible.

It was a classic WWE-style entrance similar to The Undertaker’s which went down well to say the least with the audience in Cleveland.
Trump is of course well known to WWE fans due to his many past appearances. Perhaps the most famous has to be when he bodyslammed and shaved the head of Chairman Vince McMahon in some very memorable scenes at WrestleMania XXIII back in 2007.
McMahon and Trump hold a great relationship and the WWE mogul has even had his say on the US President hopeful’s aforementioned entrance at the Republic National Convention.
Trump opened up when speaking with Chuck Todd in his first network interview since the convention, explaining what McMahon thought of his entrance.
“I think I’m a little bit lucky, and a couple of people had that idea and I went along with the idea. And everything just worked right. And it was so good that they wanted to do it on Thursday night. I said. Never in a million years, because you’ll never get it that way again,” Trump said.
“Well, Vincent’s a good friend of mine. He called me, he said, ‘That was a very, very good entrance.’ But I didn’t want to do it a second time, because, you know, it never works out the second time.”
