America is shocked by the events of Capitol Hill, where the day that should have greeted the session of United State Congress with the final green light to the new President, Joe Biden, has turned into one of the darkest pages of Western democracies in recent years.
Donald Trump's fans broke into the classroom with lots of weapons, forcing MPs to hide under their chairs. There was also no shortage of wounded, with images that shocked everyone. Also indirectly putting WWE in trouble again.
The focus of Stamford's company was one of its iconic men for decades, namely Mick Foley. The former Mankind is known for his sympathies for the Democratic Party and has failed to witness the unfortunate events in Washington without thinking that the same Donald Trump who has exacerbated the spirits by speaking for two months of stolen elections is a member of the WWE Hall of Fame.
Foley then broke his silence on the American political issue by sending a very clear request to Vince McMahon on Twitter. "Hey Vince - how about throwing this sorry s** of a b**** out of our Hall of Fame??" Wrote the three-time world champion.
Using terms much more colorful than those used by us.
Trump and the elections lost in November: all the WWE stars teased him
The November 2020 elections were won by Democrat Joe Biden against a Trump who was absolutely certain of his reappointment as President in the previous weeks and who never accepted the outcome of the polls in the following months.
There was no lack of colorful reactions also from important names of the present and of the WWE past, going in part to disprove the cliché that wrestling is populated only by conservative-minded people. One of the very first to expose himself was CM Punk, putting Biden's face in place of his own after the famous conquest of the title of WWE Champion at Money in the Bank 2011.
Peppery speeches had also arrived from two Canadians who have lived and worked in the United States: Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn. The first had compared Trump's victory to his Goldberg against him at Fastlane 2017 (where Goldberg obviously won), while the second even accused him of snatching his heel gimmick.
