Lashley (who is now the Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion) wants to relive that moment from 2007 as he has invited Trump to be in his corner for his Slammiversary 2017 match against Alberto El Patron (f.k.a Alberto Del Rio in WWE).
Below is the press release:
Lashley Wants President Trump In His Corner For Slammiversary on July 2nd
Nashville (June 23, 2017) – IMPACT Wrestling World Champion Bobby Lashley made an unprecedented Presidential appeal on Thursday morning. Via Twitter, Lashley (@fightbobby) asked President Donald Trump to be in his corner for his title defense at Slammiversary on July 2, when Lashley puts the gold on the line against Alberto El Patron. El Patron earlier this week announced that his father, legendary Mexican wrestler Dos Caras, will be in his corner at Slammiversary. Lashley asked Trump to join him at Slammiversary, which will be held on pay-per-view and filmed at the backlot of Universal Studios Florida in Orlando.
“Well, it looks like I need to find a cornerman for Slammiversary? @realDonaldTrump? It won’t be the 1st time! #reallegend,” Lashley tweeted.
IMPACT Wrestling is waiting for an answer from Trump.
