MEXICO: American Pro Wrestler Brian Cage Dons “Vote Trump” Shirt For Pay-Per-View Event

Here’s one way to play the villain: American pro wrestler Brian Cage entered the Mexico City ring in a “Vote Trump” shirt last night for the AAA Triplemania XXIII match which aired on pay-per-view in North America. Cage lost the match to a wrestler named Alberto El Patron.

    Well, the ugly American trope works well as stock villain in lucha libre, just as the evil Communist or the crazed A-Rab does the same in US wrestling, especially when lucha has clearly defined teams and no gray characters like in its American counterpart.

    Who knows, once Trump is out of the field, they’ll write his story to go through some redemption.

    Despite the cheesiness, he’s hot!

      But but but… wrestling is real.

      He does look a lot like a guy that goes to my gym.

    Please alert me when the winner is seen pissing on the shirt. I mean PLEASE alert me!

      Kinky slut!

  • RepublicansSUCKS

    fuck him and Trump

    • Todd20036

      Um, I’d rather just fuck him.

      You do realize his wearing of the shirt is to get some cheap heat from the crowd and my or may not reflect his political views.

    At least Trump’s negotiator didn’t convince him to tattoo the logo on his chest.

    A bit of foreshadowing, I hope?

    Wake me when one of these guys enters the ring in a jockstrap.

    With apologies to honest sex workers everywhere, this little piggie is a whore.

        Didn’t Mel Gibson once say on one of the talk shows that all actors are prostitutes because they sell their emotions? Not sure if I agree, but it did catch my attention as an unexpectedly profound statement, given the source.

          Even violent, bigoted has-been drunks are capable of insight.

      You are as much of a caricature as anything on Mexican television.

  • BKHawkeye

    That’s awesome.

    I mean that in a way that in order to generate heat for himself as a heel (especially against Alberto El Patron, formerly Alberto Del Rio in the WWE), this would have to be the cheapest, easiest way to do it: wear a shirt endorsing a US presidential candidate who just called most Mexicans “rapists” and some of them “good people”, at an event in Mexico against a Mexican face.

    Sometimes it’s better to have a heel or face whose behavior is open to interpretation, in terms of storytelling and booking matches. Sometimes, it’s more fun to simply have a heel because he’s a dickhead and he’s foreign, and who makes it obvious that you are supposed to boo him.

  • He’s not bad looking. Shame about the shirt. He should take it off.

  • Chucktech

    I wonder if this guy was smart enough to get some dinero from Trump for wearing this shirt? Might even have been Trump’s idea.

    I have no intelligent response to this, so here’s a picture of his sad bulge

      You know, there are dozens and dozens of websites with many thousands of NSFW photos devoted to “big boys with small toys” as one of them puts it. Or so I’ve been told. :-P”
