Trump trumped World Wrestling Entertainment owner Vince McMahon in the "Battle of the Billionaires" at the WWE's largest annual pay-per-view event. After the real estate mogul and reality TV star triumphed, he gleefully took the shears to Mr. McMahon's head.
Trump and McMahon didn't actually battle it out in the ring, but instead had WWE wrestlers representing them grapple to see who would go bald. The winner, Trump's guy Bobby Lashley, bested McMahon's chosen wrestler, Umaga.
Trump wasn't just a cheerleader during the match, however — he leaped off his feet at one point and drove McMahon into the ground, then pummeled him with some close-fisted punches.
It wasn't all laughs for Trump, though.
After celebrating in the ring with a cold beer — Austin's preferred post-victory beverage — an unsuspecting Trump was given a "Stunner" by Austin — he had his head driven into Austin's shoulder. Lashley tended to Trump while Austin jogged toward the dressing room to the roaring approval of the crowd.
The "sports entertainment" event was held fittingly on April Fool's Day and was filled with loud music, pyrotechnics and screeching, flashbulb-snapping fans.
The Trump-McMahon showdown was one of the featured matches at the 23rd edition of the professional wrestling extravaganza, which returned to Detroit after two decades.
Wrestlemania 3, held at the Pontiac Silverdome in 1987, drew 93,000 fans and featured a seminal moment when Hulk Hogan bodyslammed Andre the Giant.
Sunday's event drew 80,103 fans, a new Ford Field record, breaking the previous record of 78,129 set during the December 2003 college BasketBowl between Michigan State and Kentucky.
