REMEMBER when Donald Trump appeared at Wrestlemania?

The frontrunner for the Republican nomination for the US Presidency has quite the penchant for cameos, it would seem.

We take a look at some of his most outrageous.


Wrestlemania 23

Well, you could argue that nothing is more American than pro-wrestling, so maybe Donald just proves how he is really just an everyman.

In 2007 Trump appeared in front of 80,000 WWE fans at Wrestlemania in a ‘Battle of the Billionaires’ match.

He faced WWE owner Vince McMahon, with the loser getting their head shaved.

Unsurprisingly, Trump won the encounter meaning he would keep his famed quiff.

However, special referee Stone Cold Steve Austin gave him a stunner – making him the only Presidential candidate to have that on his CV.





Home Alone 2

Yes, the billionaire businessman even managed to sneak his mug into one of your favourite childhood Christmas movies.

As Kevin McCallister enters the Plaza Hotel in New York, he asks the businessman for directions to the reception.

He didn’t even take a credit at the end of the movie for all his hard work. Champ.



Blink and you’ll miss it, but the businessman also made an appearance in Ben Stiller’s cult comedy Zoolander.

He appears at the opening of the movie being interviewed on the red carpet.

The quaffed one is a fashion icon in his own right.


Sex and the City

Well if there’s two things that come to mind when you think of Trump it’s sex and being in the city, right?

Well that’s what the producers of the hit show thought anyway, as they saw fit to cast him as a cameo in the show’s pilot episode.

It wasn’t the Carrie or Charlotte who grabbed network executives attention when they commissioned a full run of the show. Clearly it was Donald’s.


Wall Street 2: Wall Street never sleeps

The 2010 sequel to the 1980s classic also featured Trump.

Perhaps it wasn’t his appearance that most stands out from the cameo- because it didn’t make the final cut - but the stories that surfaced after.

It was reported that everyone on the production team had to sign a contract agreeing that they would never touch his hair.

This made filming particularly difficult, as Trump was meant to be appearing in a scene shot in a barbers.
