PRESIDENT TRUMP IS TOTALLYGOING TO SHOW UP AT SLAMMIVERSARY, ISN'T HE?
(all opinions about everything are my own)
So in case you hadn't heard, Alberto El Patron (formerly Del Rio) is facing Bobby Lashley at IMPACT Slammiversary on July 2nd. It's a title unification match, with El Patron holding the GFW Global Title and Lashley the IMPACT Heavyweight Championship.
Also, since it's such a momentous occasion, it being the 15th Annual Slammiversary and all, El Patron is going to have his father, the legendary Dos Caras in his corner.

Well, that makes it an unfair fight, now doesn't it?
Bobby Lashley certainly seems to think so, because he's extended an invitation to a former corner man of his--none other than President Donald J. Trump.
Well, it looks like I need to find a cornerman for Slammiversary? @realDonaldTrump? It won't be the 1st time! #reallegend https://t.co/7bX7GN5hJL— Bobby Lashley (@fightbobby) June 22, 2017

Remember, Trump, back when he was just a pompous ass with a reality show, was in the corner of Lashley at Wrestlemania 23 in a match against Umaga (who was cornered by Vince McMahon of course).
So Lashley currently has a record of 1-0 with Trump as his good luck charm, so this might be some sound strategy.
And look, if it were any other president, I'd say there's no way in hell this happens, but this is Trump, and he seems to be looking for any story to get the media off this Russia scandal, so maybe?
Also, how much would Trump love to get to do THIS to a Mexican legend?
Then he could get up and yell to the crowd: "I TOLD YOU MEXICO WOULD PAY FOR IT!"
Plus, he could do in-ring introductions for Lashley.
I think it would sound a little something like this:
