Former WWE CEO and Two-Time failed US Senate Candidate Linda McMahon has said that she and her family count Donald Trump as a great friend. That friendship might be about to pay off in a HUGE way.
There are rumors that the new President-Elect Donald Trump is considering Linda McMahon for a cabinet post, namely a position in the Commerce Department. Linda and her husband Vince have built The WWE into a multi-billion dollar empire, so it would seem that she has the qualifications to serve on such a committee.
According to Trump's campaign finance reports, the McMahons lent Trump 7 million dollars to help fund his bid for the White House, and this would certainly help in an effort to pay them back.
On election night, McMahon tweeted this statement and photo:
She also attended Trump's victory party in New York City.
We'd like to stress that this is only a rumor at this time, as neither McMahon nor her husband has not confirmed the offer.
Trump is a WWE Hall of Famer, having been inducted in 2013 after being the focal point for the Battle of the Billionaires at Wrestlemania 23.
McMahon has only made sporadic appearances on TV for the WWE, and rarely gets involved in storylines. The one notable exception being when she snapped out of a coma and kicked her husband in the genitals, causing him to lose a streetfight to their son.
And now the woman who was faking a persistent vegetative state so that she could kick her husband in the junk when he least expected it might be our next Secretary of Commerce.
Because that's the America we all live in now.
