Numerous professional wrestlers took to Twitter on Wednesday to respond to the protestors storming the US Capitol building. WWE legend Mick Foley was among those wrestlers, publicly calling for Vince McMahon to remove Donald Trump from the WWE Hall of Fame. Long before he became the 45th president of the United States, Trump was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013 for his involvement in early WrestleMania events and his various television angles with McMahon — most notably the "Battle of the Billionaires" at WrestleMania 23.
"Hey Vince - how about throwing this sorry son of a bitch out of our Hall of Fame?" Foley wrote. Five hours after posting the message, Foley's tweet had generated more than 64,000 likes.

While the WWE Hall of Fame does not have a physical building, two-time inductee Ric Flair claimed in an interview last month that the company was in talks of constructing a physical building dedicated to the best in the company's history.
"I've had like 36 or 38 (robes), I can't remember the exact number. And [the gold one] was one of my favorite robes," Flair said. "WWE is actually in the process of building a Hall of Fame, a physical structure Hall of Fame, in Orlando. It's been delayed too because of COVID. They bought it, and they wanted to put [the robe] in there as something I wore. They've been tremendous to me on so many different levels. Now I need something in the entertainment wing."
