Trump has done many things – some good, some bad. One of the most interesting things he’s ever done though is a famous feud with the owner of WWE.

At the time when Snooki first participated in the WWE, she did not meet expectations. She was not liked by fans at all. From that point on, it seemed like she just wanted to keep her name out there so people would recognize it rather than have an honest interest in the sport. The build-up for her match at Wrestlemania speculated Snooki to be one of the most annoying persons in the company – even more than Vickie Guerrero, who people thought as a character was very irritating as well.

What started off as a career in professional wrestling has now become a successful stint in Hollywood and beyond, so much that it can be hard to see as that person who used to just go around delivering a People’s Elbow and Rock Bottom here and there. In Wrestlemania 32, Dwayne Johnson had a face-off match with Erick Rowan. In that match, he thrived and managed to pin him for the next six seconds.
