Bobby Lashley Invites President Trump to Impact Wrestling Slammiversary
Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Bobby Lashley has invited President Donald Trump to the July 2nd Slammiversary pay-per-view in Orlando. Lashley and Trump previously worked together at WrestleMania 23 for the Battle of The Billionaires, which saw Trump in Lashley’s corner as he defeated Umaga, who had Vince McMahon in his corner. The match ended with Trump shaving Vince’s head.
Lashley issued the Slammiversary invite to Trump after it was announced that Lucha legend Dos Caras will be supporting his son GFW Global Champion Alberto El Patron, appearing in his corner, for the unification title main event. Below is the official announcement from Impact:
