As a life long wrestling fan, I know that there is a balance between fantasy and reality in the world of professional wrestling. This has been very much evident with the rise of social media over the years that has led credence to the line being blurred between a wrestling persona and the real person.

What is not under contestation, and it not part of some storyline, is the real life dangers of one Donald J. Trump. For the past four years he's been playing at President of the United States, he's made a mockery of that office and subsequently all previous media appearances by him are subject to scrutiny, including his past appearence(s) in WWE and his admittance to the Hall of Fame Celebrity Wing.

Today, Mr. Trump vocally gave the go ahead for his almost cult-like followers to siege the capital building in Washington, D.C. in protest to his losing of the 2020 Presidential election, fair and square, leading to an act of sedition by citizens of this country. As the President, he words have sway and he chose to use this today, and for the past four years, to foment a treasonous act.

WWE is beloved around the world, especially here in the US, and a company as yours will not be looked upon favorably by the fans or international partners after the shocking and, in one case, fatal events that transpired today. We understand that there are members of WWE management that have both a professional and personal relationship with the Mr. Trump, and realize that it would be hurtful to sever those ties. But as a global entity outside of Trump, Inc. that has a history with Mr. Trump, the actions he has taken as President also reflect upon WWE, and how it looks in the global standing of it's fans.

I create this petition with the request that Mr. Donald J. Trump be removed from the WWE Hall of Fame Celebrity Wing, and all footage of Mr. Trump's previous engagements on WWE television and pay-per-view be stricken from your website and the WWE Network. In a time in which we need to be unified and move past a dark period of time in this country, the stain of Donald J. Trump needs to be separated from your brand. I realize this is asking you to rebuke someone that you believe has brought a tremendous amount of awareness and money to your business; however, after the events that have unfolded this 6th day of January, in the year 2021, the only reputation his association with your company will bring is one of support for a man who brought this country to its lowest point in modern history and has encouraged domestic terrorists to commit treasonous acts against this country.
