Report: Vince McMahon Issues Gag Order to WWE Wrestlers Asked to Comment on Trump
Donald Trump famously appeared at WWE Wrestlemania in 2007, where he bodyslammed WWE founder Vince McMahon and subsequently shaved his head.
Now, according to a new report, the wrestling mogul doesn’t want any of his talent to weigh in on the republican presidential nominee.
The website Daily Wrestling News reports that McMahon has imposed a company-wide gag order on all media inquiries related to Trump.
This comes after former WWE wrestler and Celebrity Apprentice contestant Maria Kanellis blasted Trump for the comments he made in the leaked 2005 Access Hollywood tape.
“He must have a very low opinion of the females that he’s worked with—maybe not females in general, but to say something like that about a married woman, it’s disrespectful, rude and uncouth,” Kanellis said. “At least, of the women he’s made these comments about, he must have a low opinion of them.”
McMahon and Trump are reportedly longtime friends. And the wrestling mogul’s wife, Linda McMahon, has previously run for the US Senate in Connecticut as a republican.
