    Reminder: Donald Trump Was Stunned By Stone Cold Steve Austin In Wwe

    Yes, Steve Austin stunned a future presidential candidate.

    On April 1, 2007, at WrestleMania 23, the "Battle of the Billionaires" match took place between WWE owner Vince McMahon and Donald Trump.

    The event took place at the Ford Field in Detroit.

    Each picked a WWE Superstar to represent them in the ring. McMahon picked Umaga and Donald Trump picked ECW Champion Bobby Lashley.

    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.

    Now the match itself wasn't great. But it did provide us with these entertaining moments:

    Commentator Jerry "The King" Lawler: "What do you think of Donald Trump's hair?"

    Commentator Jim Ross: "It's one of the unique mysteries of our time..."

    And when Trump actually shaved McMahon bald.

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

    After chugging a Steveweiser, he returned to Trump only to deliver a STONE COLD STUNNER.

    Trump sold it horribly.

    And Detroit cheered...
