Donald Trump 'feared Vince McMahon had DIED and called WWE offices after being duped by limo explosion storyline'
DONALD Trump feared WWE Chairman Vince McMahon had been killed in a limousine explosion after mistaking the wrestling storyline for real life, it is claimed.
The businessman-turned-politician even called up McMahon's office and asked if "something happened to Vince", Triple H revealed.
In a 2008 interview on the Opie and Anthony Show, Triple H briefly mentioned the limo explosion storyline, revealing that Trump was unaware that the taping was not real and called to check up on his friend.
“Oh man, I was scared to death. If I hadn’t seen the pre-tape where he got in and out of the car, you know what I mean. What kills me is so many people called, like Trump called and was like ‘something happened to Vince,’” Triple H said during the show.
“That’s the magic of television.”
The president has been a friend of WWE Chairman McMahon for several years and has even appeared in a storyline at WWE WrestleMania 23.
Trump has been well-documented with the WWE, he appeared on the television show for several weeks to hype up the Battle of the Billionaires storyline that took place at WrestleMania 23.
The relationship between McMahon and Trump continued even into Trump’s presidency, as McMahon’s wife Linda was made the head of the Small Business Administration until 2019.
She was then given a new role as the Chairman of America First Action, which is a committee that looks to aid in Trump’s re-election campaign.
At the start of the coronavirus pandemic the WWE was deemed an “essential business” in Florida, allowing the company to continue live shows without fans during the COVID-19 outbreak.
The president even took some time out of his business schedule to wish Triple H a happy birthday on April 25, retweeting McMahon’s tweet and added, “@TripleH is a total winner!”
