KEY POINTS

  • Mick Foley calls on the removal of Donald Trump from the Hall of Fame
  • Vince McMahon has yet to respond to Foley and the U.S. Capitol riot
  • Foley tells Trump to own up to the Capitol coup

WWE legend Mick Foley decried the riot that took place at the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. and pinned the blame on U.S. President Donald Trump.

Protesters charged the U.S. Capitol that left one woman dead and many injured, CNN reported. Foley was one of the many people who witnessed the carnage. He reposted a video showing police officers hurt as they left the riot.

"This is on you, Mr. President," Foley said in his post. "Every single injury today is on you."

It was an ugly scene that Trump encouraged hours before the Capitol coup happened. He also refused to condemn it afterward. The unfortunate incident comes 14 days before the end of his presidency.

That tweet by the retired professional wrestler did not end there. He followed up with another tweet, calling on WWE top brass Vince McMahon to remove Trump from the Hall of Fame.

“Hey, Vince-how about throwing this sorry son of a b*tch out of our Hall of Fame?” Foley’s other tweet read.

As of this writing, McMahon has yet to respond to Foley’s tweet or give a statement on the Capitol coup. The WWE Chairman and CEO does have ties with Trump and may not react or act at all.

It's no secret that Trump has a close relationship with the McMahon family as the business mogul-turned-president was seen on WWE television on numerous occasions and was involved in several storylines.

Trump was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame along with Foley and luminaries such as Bruno Sammartino, Bob Backlund, Booker T and Trish Stratus in 2013.

Aside from that, Trump appointed McMahon’s wife Linda as Administrator of the Small Business Administration in 2016. She stepped down in 2019 and ended up leading the pro-Trump Super PAC America First Action, per CBR.

McMahon is in a tricky spot, and it remains to be seen if other WWE personalities will air similar suggestions made by Foley in the aftermath of the American carnage.

Incidentally, Foley previously revealed that he was dealing with COVID-19 last Jan. 2 and added that he has been isolating in a hotel room for the past 18 days.

The 55-year-old shared the experience through a video, sharing that he had been experiencing body aches, loss of smell, diminished hearing and fatigue.
