The terms of the deal were not disclosed. Trump is to make his first live appearance as the new owner of the "RAW" franchise Monday.

"This was an offer I couldn't refuse," WWE Chairman Vince McMahon said in a statement.

"The 'Monday Night RAW' franchise has been one of the top cable franchises since its launch 17 years ago," added Trump. "I'm going to do things on the show that have never been done or seen before. As my first act as owner, I am doing something unprecedented. I am giving back to the people who have been loyal all these years. For the first time in more than 838 episodes of 'RAW,' next week's show will be live and commercial-free."

"Donald Trump is one of the most entertaining personalities with one of the sharpest business minds of our time. He's always had the midas touch, which will only add to the level of excitement for the loyal fans of WWE 'Monday Night Raw,'" said USA's Chris McCumber.
