As news broke today of Joe Biden being projected as the next President of the United States, those in the wrestling industry have begun to react. Two days ago, Linda McMahon — who was formerly Trump's Small Business Administration Administrator — tweeted out in support of Trump's effort to stop the vote count in battleground states.
After Biden's victory, CM Punk responded to McMahon with the classic photo of Punk — with Biden's face photoshopped in — blowing Vince McMahon a kiss after he won the WWE Championship against John Cena at WWE Money in the Bank in 2011.
Seen in the tweets below, Sasha Banks, Sami Zayn, Mick Foley, JBL, The Iron Sheik, Mickie James, Chelsea Green, Batista, Shane Helms, Joey Janela, MJF, and Ricochet commented about the Presidential results.

The first woman and the first person of color has been elected to a Presidential ticket, long overdue but so good to see. Forget politics-let's be the UNITED States now. Congrats @KamalaHarris pic.twitter.com/sHwJZyigXP— John Layfield (@JCLayfield) November 7, 2020
