- Statements by Mick Foley on social networks after the assault of several people on the United States Capitol
- Donald Trump has been a member of the WWE Hall of Fame since 2013
Washington DC has become the epicenter of the world press in recent hours due to the entrance of a large number of people into the United States Capitol. Many of these people have identified themselves as followers of Donald J. Trump and even the current president allegedly encouraged them on social networks to act, something that has cost him the blocking of his official account on Twitter and Facebook.
On the occasion of this commotion, some personalities related to American professional wrestling have demonstrated. The most striking case is that of Mick Foley, who has urged Vince McMahon to remove Donald Trump from the WWE Hall of Fame. “Hi Vince, how about you kick this sorry son of a *** out of our Hall of Fame?” Foley wrote on Twitter.
Hey Vince – how about throwing this sorry son of a bitch out of our Hall of Fame?@VinceMcMahon

Donald Trump was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in the 2013 edition and was introduced by Vince McMahon. Vince McMahon is known to be a great personal friend of Donald Trump. In April, the political group chaired by Linda McMahon, Vince McMahon’s wife, announced an investment of 18.5 million dollars for advertising in favor of Donald Trump in the state of Florida for the presidential campaign. For that reason, Mick Foley pointed directly to Vince McMahon on Twitter.

That Donald Trump has a very close relationship with the McMahon family is a fact, and that was evidenced in the storyline in which he participated in the WrestleMania 23 event held in 2007. Both played their hair in a fight where they had to choose their representative. Vince McMahon chose Umaga and Trump chose Bobby Lashley. Eventually, Lashley prevailed and Vince had to shave his hair.
