Some would say the early days of Donald Trump's presidency is straight out of a World Wrestling Entertainment storyline. The fact that vice president Mike Pence swore Linda McMahon in as the head of the Small Business Administration yesterday and that Trump himself is a WWE Hall of Famer only pile-drive those points home.
That could explain why rabid WWE fans trolled the hell out of McMahon's swearing-in ceremony on Facebook Live yesterday, littering the feed with pro-wrestling references left and right. Here are some of the more hilarious reactions we spotted.
We would be there for her knocking Trump silly with a steel chair shot.
After all, what's wrestling action without a juicy storyline, right?
Hey, with this administration, you never know.
Don't be surprised if Monday Night Raw broadcasts directly from the Oval Office over the next few years.
All WWE Superstars have entrance music. Get on your job, Pence.
Blood must be shed, even if it's orange.
This swearing-in ceremony was lacking choke slams, body slams, power bombs and the use of foreign objects.
Hey, there's still time for Vincent Kennedy to walk it out.
If only WWE superstar Randy Orton could drop Trump with his finisher.
Don't front, NWO was the clique deserving of a shout out at any time, even if that time happens to be a swearing-in ceremony for a presidential cabinet position.
Or perhaps some "Sweet Chin Music" ala the "Heartbreak Kid" Shawn Michaels.
Trump infamously shaved Vince McMahon's head bald at WrestleMania 23's "Battle of the Billionaires" nearly 10 years ago in April 2017. Let that sink in.
