Donald Trump Makes Undertaker-Themed Entrance at Republican National Convention

Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for president of the United States, could be described as a sports guy.

In June, he had this to say, per Nick Corasaniti of the New York Times, about potential speakers at the Republican National Convention (which is underway this week in Cleveland): "We're going to do it a little different, if it's OK. I'm thinking about getting some of the great sports people who like me a lot."

And here's a fun fact sports fans may or may not be aware of: Trump is actually a member of the WWE Hall of Fame. His Trump Plaza in Atlantic City, New Jersey, hosted WrestleMania IV and V, and he was also involved in the "Battle of the Billionaires" at WrestleMania 23. 

So it's not a big surprise Trump made a WWE-themed entrance at the RNC. 

Ahead of his wife Melania's controversial speech, Trump hit the stage to Queen's "We Are the Champions." The visual aspect of his entrance, however, was eerily reminiscent of Undertaker's:
