A recent article about Vince McMahon, formerly the CEO of WWE, has been published in the Wall Street Journal.
The business disclosed its discovery of a further $5 million in unrecorded payments tied to Vince in a filing with the SEC one week ago. According to a fresh report from the Wall Street Journal (WSJ), it appears that the donations were made to one of Donald Trump’s charitable organizations.
According to the article, the 76-year-old philanthropist gave Donald J. Trump’s now-defunct foundation a total of five million dollars in philanthropic contributions. The 45th President of the United States is said to have been paid a total of four million dollars for his attendance at WrestleMania 23, as stated in the article. In addition, Vince gave Donald a payment of one million dollars for appearing on an episode of RAW in the year 2009.
At WrestleMania 23, Bobby Lashley and Umaga competed in a battle that was billed as the “Battle of the Billionaires.” Lashley was accompanied by Donald Trump during the event. Umaga was accompanied by Vince McMahon. Whoever came out on the losing end of the match would have to get their head shaved. Donald or Vince. After Bobby’s victory over Umaga, Trump proceeded to shave McMahon’s head after the bout.
According to the article, Trump made sure that his head would not be shaved under any circumstances by having his team personally study the contract that he signed for WrestleMania 23, which says that he will not appear at the event.
