Many WWE fans find is humorous to announce that Donald Trump is the first WWE superstar to become the President of the United States. It is also a true fact. Trump helped back the WWE in its early days and had an onscreen role over the years as well. President Donald Trump is also a member of the WWE Hall of Fame.

Former WWE superstar Bobby Lashley spoke to the Daily Star and made an interesting claim. Lashley feels that, over the years, the president is the biggest celebrity the WWE ever brought into the company.

Donald Trump and his WWE appearances

The partnership between President Trump and the WWE began way back in 1988. At that time, the WWE hosted "WrestleMania IV" from Trump Plaza in Atlantic City. They then repeated the appearance for "WrestleMania V," the only time they appeared in the same location in two consecutive years. He also showed up at "WrestleMania VII" and was interviewed at "WrestleMania XX."

In 2007, the WWE started a rivalry angle between Vince McMahon and Donald Trump in a Battle of the Billionaires.

This concluded in a match between Bobby Lashley and Umaga. Lashley won the match and Trump was allowed to shave McMahon bald.

According to Lashley, the McMahon family dropped $250,000 in real money into the crowd when Donald Trump walked out in 2009 and bought the company, easily gaining their allegiance. Lashley said everyone loved Trump after that. In 2013, Trump entered the WWE Hall of Fame.
