A month-long feud between billionaires Donald Trump and Vince McMahon culminated in an epic wrestling match that would decide, once and for all, who had more money.

The stakes in the match were high: the winner got to shave the loser’s head bald. Dubbed the “Battle of the Billionaires,” and being billionaires, Trump and McMahon weren’t going to wrestle each other, so the two men chose a representative to wrestle for them.

The drama all went down in 2007 at WrestleMania 23 in Detroit, with then-Extreme Championship Wrestling Bobby Lashley representing Trump and Umaga representing McMahon. Stone Cold Steve Austin would be the special referee.

About halfway through the match, Umaga attacked Austin, leaving him incapacitated outside the ring. McMahon’s son, Shane, entered the ring and attempted to take over the referee position.

That’s where the video picks up.


Trump didn’t take kindly to the interruption and decided to take things into his own hands.

After Trump put a whooping on McMahon, his man, Lashley, would go on to win the match and the trio of Trump, Lashley and Austin shaved McMahon’s entire head for millions to watch.

They actually shaved it.

So while Scott Walker thinks his experience battling unions in Wisconsin has prepared him to take on ISIS, Trump can actually say he beat up a billionaire CEO, tied him down and then shaved him bald.
