'Apprentice' star Donald Trump wins at 'Wrestlemania' to keep his coif
By Christopher Rocchio, 04/02/2007
Donald Trump will be keeping his famous coif after all.
Following a mid-February bet with World Wrestling Entertainment chairman Vince McMahon in which both put their hair on the line, The Apprentice star and real estate mogul came out victorious during the "Battle of the Billionaires" at Wrestlemania 23 last night in Detroit, Peoplereported on Monday.
If the thought of McMahon and Trump wrestling each other is surprising it's because neither of the two men actually fought during the match, as McMahon tabbed "The Samoan Bulldozer" Umaga and Trump called on Bobby Lashley. However the excitement must have gotten to Trump during the match, as People reported he jumped into the squared-circle and "pummeled" McMahon with punches.
When Lashley defeated Umaga, McMahon honored the bet and had his head shaved in-front of a live pay-per-view audience and 80,000 wrestling fans at the Detroit arena.
But Trump didn't get off totally scot free. Following the match, People reported Trump received a "stunner" by special guest referee "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. The shoulder to the head came as Trump celebrated his win with a beer.
