SLATED AS BEING ONE OF THE most electric sporting events of the year, the five remaining Republican presidential candidates will meet again at WrestleMania 32 on April 3.
Prior to the hotly anticipated cage match between Shaun McMahon and The Undertaker, the latter will adjudicate the scheduled republican debate from inside the metal structure.
McMahon is fighting the wrestling great for control of Raw, one of the most popular programmes in the WWE stable.Commentators are predicting that this year’s WrestleMania could be the largest ever attendance at a
Commentators are predicting that this year’s WrestleMania could be the largest ever attendance at an indoor sporting event.
The debate will take place just prior to the cage match, but before the title bout for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship between Triple H and Roman Reigns.
Front runner, Donald Trump is looking forward to returning to his old stomping ground, where in 2007, he shaved his friend-turned-enemy Vince McMahon’s hair off after the “Battle of the Billionaires” at Wrestlemania 23.
“It was all for the show, Vince and I are on great terms,” said Trump.
“I love wrestling. Once I fired an intern for saying it’s fake. It’s not fake. Vince McMahon and the WWE are about as American as you can damn well get.”
Hitting back at the GOP, Democrat Hilary Clinton said mixing politics and explosive sports entertainment is unethical and in poor form.
As she faces off against Vermont’s Bernie Sanders for the Democrat nomination, Clinton isn’t pulling any punches when it comes to her political rivals – no matter what side of the fence they sit.
“The WWE is another reason why the terrorists hate us,” she said this afternoon.
“It’s a smorgasbord of everything that’s wrong in America. The corporate greed, the showboating and violence. For the Republicans to hold a political debate at WrestleMania is equivalent to Bernie and I debating on Wall Street.”
Pay-per-view provider MainEvent is televising the event in Australia via the Austar network. Prices start at about $50, or about half the price of a slab of black rats from the pub.
