8. Stone Cold Talks About How Vince McMahon Convinced Donald Trump To Take A Stunner At WrestleMania 23
During a recent interview with Complex, WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin talked about how Vince McMahon convinced WWE Hall of Famer (celebrity wing) and current President of USA, Donald Trump, to take a stunner at WrestleMania 23. Below are the highlights:
On how they broached the Stunner to Trump:
“Vince says to me, ‘Steve, I’m going to see if I can get Donald to take the Stunner.’ I said, ‘you think?’ He says, ‘Oh yeah, it’ll be great, it’ll be great.’ He goes up to Donald and says, ‘Hey Donald, this is Stone Cold Steve Austin.’ I shook Donald’s hand. He goes, ‘Listen, I want to know if after the match, when everything is done, if Steve could hit the Stone Cold Stunner on you.’
Donald says, ‘You think it’d be a good thing?’ and Vince goes, ‘Oh, of course it would be. It would just blow the roof off the place.’ And Donald’s right hand guy was saying, ‘No, no, no! You don’t need to do this, we got other things to do!’ He’s trying to talk him out of it. And Donald says to Vince, ‘You think it’ll help?’ and Vince goes, ‘I promise you it’ll help.’ And Donald says, ‘Okay, I’ll do it.’
On how Trump actually took the move:
“It wasn’t a picture-perfect stunner, but I give Donald Trump a hell of a lot of credit for being a man. He was a stand-up guy, he was there to do business and we did business, so I respect the man for that.
If I see him giving a speech on the TV, I don’t think, ‘Hey, I gave this guy a stunner.’ We were doing business and we did business. The fact that he is going to be the next President of the United States, it’s a hell of a story.”
