A Bet Between Billionaires
Normally I am not one that gives a care about what the rich and famous are up to. I will never be a billionaire, probably not a millionaire either. But the latest duel between billionaires cannot go unnoticed.
Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell brought in the New Year trading barbs. It went from night time talk shows with Donald to Rosie's bully pulpit of The View. Actually it was not worth the time that it took up.
But hot on the heels of taking on Rosie in a battle of words, comes Trump's venture into the world of "sports entertainment". Yes, friends, the Donald himself, standing in a professional wrestling ring. And on the line is the one thing he is known for, other than his money. His mane.
It's time for a haircut.
The owner of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Vince McMahon incorporated the idea of the feud with Donald as a great follow-up to Trump last sparring. Besides both men being billionaires, they have been friends for years. McMahon invited Trump to appear on the WWE's Monday night show, RAW. In the ring, McMahon challenged Trump to a match at Wrestlemania. Or so the script went. After sparring with words, the two billionaires came up with the idea of putting their hair on the line. Each man was to choose a wrestler who would represent them in the ring and the losing billionaire would get his head shaved by the winner.
The match will be one of many matches at "the grandest stage of them all", Wrestlemania on April 1st at Ford Field in Detroit. There are all kinds of matches to be held that night but none will be picked up by the mane-stream media like the Hair vs. Hair match.
If the match wouldn't be enough fun, the special guest referee will be none other than the beer drinking, hell raising, McMahon hating WWE superstar, "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.
So for the last 6 weeks or so, the three televised wrestling shows have added other pieces to the "hairy" puzzle.
Now the guess seems to be that the owner himself will be the one to get his head shaved. But knowing the bizarre that seems to accompany wrestling, it's not a sure thing. Now if McMahon loses and Trump gets to shave his head, it might make the bottom of the newspaper on a back page. But just imagine what would happen if Trump's wrestler lost. It would be the lead story on the morning shows, the nightly news, and all the news channels all day Monday.
And besides, there is always a rematch possibility on Monday night's show. And if the other wrestler won, both billionaires could end up with shaved heads. That would be a ratings boom.
Maybe that is what WWE's billionaire is hoping for.
