Find out which WWE Hall of Famer was indicted on criminal charges today (June 8), making breaking news around America.
Former United States of America President Donald Trump, also known to WWE fans as a 2013 Inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame, was indicted on seven charges.
Donald Trump was indicted by a federal grand jury in Florida on seven counts over allegedly mishandling classified documents according to NBC News.
Trump first revealed the news himself on Truth Social, revealing that he faced seven counts which was corroborated by his lawyer and another source according to NBC.
Charges reportedly include false statements and conspiracy to obstruct per the same report.
While Trump’s social media post referred to the probe as a “box hoax,” the charges the former President faces are allegedly quite serious.
According to CNBC, the list of charges includes willfully retaining documents in violation of the Espionage Act.
This isn’t the first bout of legal trouble for the former President however, being indicted by a New York grand jury in March 2023 for his alleged role in a a scandal relating to hush money payments.
The payments were allegedly made to the pornographic film actress known as ‘Stormy Daniels’ during the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Professional wrestling news has been no stranger to the term ‘hush money payments,’ over the past year after the shocking departure (and then subsequent return) of Vince McMahon regarding allegations of sexual misconduct that were investigated by the WWE Board of Directors.
Donald Trump featured on WWE television in both 2007 and 2009, being involved in notable on-screen angles including the famous “Battle of the Billionaires” at WrestleMania 23 in 2007.
In 2009, Trump appeared on an episode of WWE Raw where he featured heavily throughout the night in a running angle which saw him buy WWE Raw and sell it back to Vince McMahon.
He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013 in a class that also included Mick Foley, Trish Stratus and Bob Backlund.
Donald Trump also hosted the American reality competition series, The Apprentice for 15 seasons, before the series ended as he had moved on to other projects.
He ran for President of the United States of America and won, serving as the country’s 45th President.
