The stipulation for the match was simple: The loser has to have their head shaved in the middle of the ring.

To add even more intrigue to the match, the special guest referee chosen for this epic confrontation was none other than Stone Cold Steve Austin.

The highlight of the evening came when Austin tried to toast with Trump, who looked incredibly awkward and stiff in the ring.
