Donald Trump’s appearance on the Imus radio show two weeks ago was considered to be an “embarrassment” internally. Trump didn’t know his Bobby Lashley’s first name, and when trying to come up with his last name, he thought it was “Lizzy” or “Lindsay”. What happened is that an NBC P.R. assistant wrote down the wrong name for Lashley, and then Trump read it, got confused and pronounced it differently a few times trying to figure out how to say it right. However, WWE brass were happy that he got the main selling points of the match out so his appearance was considered to be good. Trump also referred to The Great Khali as “Hindu”. He also asked Vince McMahon if every single show WWE does sells out and McMahon replied, “Yes.”
