This past Monday, during a live WWE broadcast on USA Network's top-rated WWE Monday Night RAW, Stone Cold Steve Austin was announced as the special guest referee for the highly anticipated "Battle of the Billionaires" at WrestleMania 23.
The participants in WrestleMania 23's Battle of the Billionaires are set. Bobby Lashley will defend Trump against Vince McMahon's representative Umaga. Stone Cold Steve Austin will police the action.
Austin will be the ref for the "Hair vs. Hair" match at WrestleMania 23 between business icon Donald Trump and WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. If Donald Trump's designated wrestler, ECW World Champion Bobby Lashley, beats Vince McMahon's designated wrestler, "The Samoan Bulldozer" Umaga, then Trump will shave off McMahon's hair. If McMahon's wrestler wins, Trump will have his hair shaved off live in front of a worldwide pay-per-view audience and more than 75,000 cheering fans at Ford Field in Detroit on April 1.
Last night, Austin made his first ever appearance on Sci Fi Network's ECW. During the live broadcast, Austin vowed to be unbiased at WrestleMania 23, but guaranteed that a billionaire will leave Detroit bald on April 1. Austin also promised to be at WWE Monday Night RAW in Washington, DC this Monday (March 12) on the USA Network for a contract signing where Trump and McMahon will meet in the ring and make the "Battle of the Billionaires" official.
