WWE ran a sizzle reel for the Television Critics Association that featured many highlights of WWE history, but was void of any current political figures.
During the clip, notables such as Donald Trump, Barack Obama and Arnold Schwarzenegger all were absent from the reel, which garnered questions as to why that was the case. Both Trump and Schwarzenegger are WWE Hall of Famers, who have been prominently featured on the program.
"To pick one is trying to get to a destination you’re trying to get to," said Triple H, per a Deadline report.
Linda McMahon -- mother in law of Triple H, and mother of Stephanie McMahon, is currently in Trump's cabinet, heading up his Small Business Administration. When pressed on the situation, Stephanie McMahon said that WWE as a company does its best to stay free from political bias.
“WWE is non partisan. We are the greatest combination of every culture, gender, socio economic background [et cetera]. We made a strategic decision to not put forth any type of partisan politics at all…[it’s a] decision we made in our programming, not just in our sizzle," said Stephanie McMahon.
