Due to the fact that tonight’s WrestleMania PPV is the “Super Bowl” of the wrestling business, both fans and WWE management would expect billionaire Donald Trump to be enthusiastic and dedicated to his role in tonight’s show. However, that does not appear to be the case.
Several people in the WWE locker room see Trump as being very distant backstage, acting as if professional wrestling is beneath him. There’s a certain amount of resentment for Trump due to him stressing on more than one occasion that the reason he agreed to do the angle is because Vince McMahon has promised to make a sizeable donation to a charity of his choice.
The revealing factor of Trump’s feelings came when he failed to mention tonight’s WrestleMania pay-per-view this past Friday night when he made an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman.
