In a recent attempt to help reopen the United States economy, Trump has created an advisory group and one of the names in the list came as a huge surprise.
Donald Trump has named ‘the great’ WWE chairman Vince McMahon, in an advisory group to help in improving the United States economy. The US president announced this week he’s putting together a group including the commissioners of the nation’s top four sports leagues and other executives.
As well as ‘the great’ WWE chairman Vince McMahon, Trump also named the likes of NBA’s Adam Silver, NFL chief Roger Goodell, MLB’s Rob Manfred and NHL boss Gary Bettman. Furthermore, he noted that UFC president Dana White is part of the team, alongside Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
It is certainly a shocking decision to have a wrestling promoter be put in charge of the US economy advisory group but we do have to acknowledge that Vince McMahon is probably one of the most successful businessmen in the world.
Speaking during a briefing, Trump talked about the importance of bringing sports back into everyday life after the coronavirus pandemic forced leagues to halt play.
“We have to get our sports back, I’m tired of watching baseball games that are 14 years old. ‘I haven’t actually had too much time to watch – I would say maybe I watch one batter and then I get back to work.’ The conference came after it was revealed WWE would be allowed to continue to hold live shows – without a crowd – at the Performance Center in Orlando.”
