Superstars react to Trump's choice
Monday night, Superstars anxiously gathered around the TV in the locker room to see whom Donald Trump would choose as his representative in the Battle of the Billionaires at WrestleMania 23.
When Trump announced his “go-to-guy” would be ECW World Champion Bobby Lashley, the Raw locker room erupted in a mix of cheers and jeers. Some were happy for Lashley, while others were disappointed as they would not have the opportunity to strut their stuff at the biggest show of the year.
“I thought Donald was going to pick me. I actually have champagne waiting on ice back in my hotel room,” said Kenny Dykstra. Dykstra lost to Lashley two weeks ago after accepting an open challenge for the ECW World Title.
“Lashley got lucky when he beat me, it was a fluke,” said Dykstra. “If you watch the tape closely, he thumbed me in the eye. That caused me to not see clearly and walk right into his signature move.”
Two men who have first-hand knowledge of what it is like to be in the ring with the Samoan Bulldozer approved of Trump’s call.
“Good choice,” said WWE Champion John Cena. “I know that there aren’t a lot of people who can even stand in the face of Umaga. However, if there’s one on the roster I’d pick, Bobby Lashley would be the one.”
“I think it’s pretty equal competitive talent,” said former Intercontinental Champion Jeff Hardy, who lost his title to Umaga last week. “Both those guys are tough and vicious when it comes to in-ring performance. I think it will be a good match. I’m going to go with Umaga though, because I’ve been in the ring with him. He’s a pretty tough guy to deal with.”
Last week, Jonathan Coachman had a special meeting with “The Donald” for Superstar 2 Superstar. Did Mr. McMahon’s Executive Assistant have any special insight to Trump’s decision?
“On a professional level, I have to give Donald Trump a lot of credit that he picked a Superstar the caliber of Bobby Lashley,” said Coachman. “But one thing you need to understand is Mr. McMahon picked Umaga for a reason: he’s unstoppable. He is a man that nobody, including Bobby Lashley, is going to be able to beat. So Donald Trump may be feeling pretty good about himself, but the bottom line is the head is still going to be shaved and Bobby Lashley is still going to be down for the one two three.”
