Donald Trump has purchased World Wrestling Entertainment's MONDAY NIGHT RAW, and was quick to announce big and immediate plans for the popular franchise.
Calling Monday Night RAW (which airs on USA Network) "one of the top cable franchises since its launch 17 years ago," Trump said in a statement, "I'm going to do things on the show that have never been done or seen before."
For starters, Trump will reward the program's loyal fans on Monday, June 15, by serving up the first live and commercial-free broadcast in RAW's 838-episode history.
During that landmark outing, Trump will make his first live appearance as the franchise's new owner.
Although the terms of Trump's RAW deal were not disclosed, WWE chairman Vince McMahon said, "This was an offer I couldn't refuse."
Will wrestling get even more soapy? Stay tuned.
