Many Latinos are still upset with The Donald, the American GOP contender and real estate mogul who came out and target Mexicans specifically in his anti illegal alien rant when he announced his run for the presidency.
Now wrestler Tigre Uno will challenge Trump on Athe air on Wednesday, July 22 at 9/8c on Destination America. Masked lucha libre wrestler Tigre Uno made his TNA Wrestling debut in 2014, and is now the TNA X-Division Champion. Like other professional luchador wrestlers, the high-flying superstar specializes in aerial maneuvers to defeat his opponents in the ring.
Business partners may be dumping Trump in the wake of his latest controversy, but “the Donald” does have one offer on the table. Luchador and TNA X-Division Champion Tigre Uno, who resides in Tijuana, Mexico, has had enough of Donald Trump and he is not going to take it! Following days of wall-to-wall media coverage on Trump’s anti-immigrant comments about Mexicans, Tigre Uno is fed up and is standing up for the heritage and people of the nation he proudly represents each week on IMPACT WRESTLING, which airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Destination America.
In a series of tweets that lit up the wrestling Twittersphere last night, the magnanimous Mexican wrestling icon shared that he is fighting mad about Trump’s incendiary remarks against Mexican people.
Translation: I’ve been silent long enough! @fightbobby tell your good friend @realDonaldTrump that I am proud of my country. My people. My culture.
Translation: I’ll fix this myself. @realDonaldTrump if you are man enough to face me I am @IMPACTWRESTLING #TigreVsTrump
Following the tweets, TNA executives reached out to the usually mild-mannered Tigre to ensure the legitimacy of the posts. In addition to confirming he authored the tweets, Tigre plans to address his fans, the people of Mexico and Trump directly on the all-new episode of IMPACT WRESTLING that will air Wednesday, July 22 at 9/8c on Destination America.
