US President forming group of advisers to help the country during Coronavirus
American president Donald Trump has appointed WWE Chairman Vince McMahon, among others from the sports world, to help restart the US economy during the coronavirus pandemic.
He will be joined by other sporting leaders, such as Roger Goodell (NFL), Adam Silver (NBA), Rob Manfred (MLB), Gary Bettman (NHL), Dana White (UFC), New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban.
Donald Trump and Vince McMahon have a long standing relationship going back to when Trump Plaza hosted WrestleMania’s IV and V. Donald Trump even was a part of WrestleMania 23 in the ‘Battle of The Billionaires’.
Earlier this week, Florida state officials announced that wrestling would be considered an “essential business,” allowing them to continue to tape live events from the WWE Performance Center despite the statewide “stay at home” order.
