Donald Trump? Really? Is that the best that Raw could do?

Donald Trump is the new owner Monday Night Raw and, yes, Raw will be commercial-free next week. Trump was a one-time rival of McMahon in 2007, when he backed Bobby Lashley and McMahon backed Umaga in a match. McMahon, as we all know, had his head shaved when Umaga lost the match.

But really, Donald Trump as the owner of Raw. There had to be other possibilities for Raw: Ric Flair, Ted DiBiase, Paul Heyman, and Eric Bishoff are all better candidates than Trump.

Trump doen't have any WWE experience, except for the Wrestlemania 23 headline. He will most likely have nothing big to do with Raw and could hurt Raw's ratings in the near future.

This "selling Raw" storyline had so many better outcomes than what the WWE creative team went with, but, considering the short amount of time creative had to come up with this storyline, it's no surprise that the outcome was a complete let-down.

The WWE Universe would surely trade a two-hour commercial-free Raw for someone like Eric Bishoff or Ted DiBiase.

Please give feedback on what you think of Donald Trump as Raw's owner.
