Vince McMahon Sells WWE Monday Night Raw to Donald Trump

Ryan MichaelSenior Writer IIIJune 16, 2009


Just announced live on Monday Night Raw, Vince McMahon has sold the Raw brand of World Wrestling Entertainment to none other than Donald Trump.

To make matters more interesting, Trump has promised to air Monday Night Raw next week without any commercials as his first move of business.

I'm not sure exactly what to think of this but for the time being, I'm simply going to report on what we do know.

A little over two years ago, McMahon and Trump had a rivalry that culminated in Vince getting his head shaved bald at Wrestlemania 23. Vince selected Umaga to represent him and Donald Trump selected Bobby Lashley who defeated Umaga which resulted in Vince McMahon's being shaved bald.

There has been no word as to whether or not Raw will have a General Manager or not. I seriously doubt that Donald Trump would appear on Raw every week so it should be interesting to see what they might do with the situation.

Donald Trump says that he will be on Raw live next week, the same week in which Vince will ask permission to deliver his farewell address.

During the dialog between Vince McMahon and Donald Trump (Trump appeared via satellite), the delivery of the lines between both men made me inclined to believe that Trump's dialog was clearly recorded prior to the live event.

Stay tuned to Bleacher Report for updates regarding the situation.
