People on Twitter were slightly concussed by the news, even though Trump has a past with pugilism. He helped promote several Mike Tyson fights in the late-80s and early-90s. He also made an appearance in a wrestling ring in 2004.

"Glad that the former POTUS has nothing better to do on the 9th of September," another wrote.
