Election day saw a number of wrestling superstars tweet their political thoughts on a historic day that saw Republican Donald Trump become the unlikely President-elect.

Of course, Donald Trump has a long history with the WWE and Vince McMahon. Rumour has it Vince put a gagging order on all of his employees in the run-up to the election as he did not want any stories of Trump's dealing with the company being made public.

Still, the likes of Renee Young, William Regal, Kofi Kingston and Mick Foley gave their thoughts on the quite unbelievable result.

Former WWE superstars like Matt Hardy, Gail Kim, Gregory Helms and Eric Bishoff also chimed in. And no, Hardy did not try and delete Trump.

In 2007, Trump took part in a storyline with McMahon that was billed as the "Battle of the Billionaires." Trump had Bobby Lashley represent him at WrestleMania 23 against Vince McMahon's handpicked wrestler, Umaga.

The loser of the match was to have their head shaved bald. Lashley ended up being victorious, and thus, McMahon was the one who had his ears significantly lowered.

In 2009, Trump was involved with the WWE yet again. This time, he was reported to have bought Monday Night Raw from McMahon. However, the very next week, in storyline, McMahon would buy the show back from Trump for twice the price.

Dave Meltzer confirmed last night on twitter this was because the WWE's real-life stock took a dramatic plummet when it was believed that Trump had actually bought the company.

With the stock markets taking a dive today also, the Trump effect does not appear to be a good one.
