Impact Wrestling Champ Bobby Lashley made an unprecedented Presidential appeal recently.
Via Twitter, Lashley (@fightbobby) asked President Donald Trump to be in his corner for his title defense at Slammiversary on Sunday, July 2, when Lashley puts the gold on the line against Alberto El Patron.
El Patron announced that his father, legendary Mexican wrestler Dos Caras, will be in his corner at Slammiversary.
Lashley asked Trump to join him at Slammiversary, which is on pay-per-view from Universal Studios Florida in Orlando.

“Well, it looks like I need to find a cornerman for Slammiversary? @realDonaldTrump? It won’t be the 1sttime! #reallegend,” Lashley tweeted.
In 2007, Lashley was selected by Donald Trump to represent him in a Battle of the Billionaires match against WWE Chariman/CEO Vince McMahon‘s representative, Umaga, at WrestleMania 23. The match also featured McMahon’s son, Shane, and their long time adversary Stone Cold Steve Austin as the guest referees.
At WrestleMania 23 in what became a Hair vs. Hair match, Lashley defeated Umaga following a spear and then helped Trump and Austin shave McMahon’s head, saving Trump’s hair from being shaved off. Austin ended the segment by giving Trump a Stone Cold Stunner. Trump is a WWE Hall of Famer in the celebrity division.
Impact Wrestling is waiting for an answer from President Trump.
