for all the ardent trump fans here, this thread isn't meant to bash him but, a simple look at one of his past ventures.
for the believers in the new world order, maybes a little light is shone onto how this conspiracy took off.
for the rest, hopefully a little light relief from the usual.
back in 1996 a burgeoning internet began to take off big time, the browser battle between netscape navigator and internet explorer began, and search
engines from yahoo and aol wanted you to make them your homepage.
these search engines would show the most searched for terms, rather than promote the highest bidder which happens now, so it was prevalent to get some
free advertising, and led to the dotcom bubble shortly after.
on tv on monday nights, outside of the nfl season, two wrestling companies vied for viewers in what was called the, 'monday night wars', wwf, not
the panda loving tree huggers but the world wrestling federation were established but coming off the back of drug scandals from past stars, were now
trying to push smaller, less steroid abusing looking guys like bret hart and shawn michaels.
their opponents world championship wrestling or wcw, picked up all the old, shamed stars but what could they do with hulk hogan? in the eighties he
was famed for telling kids to take their vitamins and basically being the good that stood up to bullies, now had a rather large, dark cloud over
enter the new world order of wrestling, or nWo, ironic because this stable was filled with old superstars, genius because those old fan favourites
were now the baddies!
the audience generally being young, and the young already trying to use the internet started searching using search word nWo, it was huge.
enter alex jones and david icke types, desperate for web traffic for their radio shows about government cover ups and lizards, for these guys a light
flicked on, lump them together rename these evil governments, and lizards, the new world order and we can get web traffic our way!
which kinda worked, people switched off from icke's lizard led agenda and jones, well he kept
the end of the world.
fast forward to september 11th 2001, the same conspiracy types claiming they had the truth now got a healthy bump online, but what to do with this new
world order malarky from years back?
pages and shows had been dedicated to garner web traffic back in the day, would they just let it go away and start over?
so that's where the new world order started kids, hulk hogan!
later the wwf lost naming rights to the world wildlife fund and renamed themselves wwe, the e is for entertainment.
wcws owner ted turner bought the biggest search engine on the planet, aol, and gave them his tv channels and wrestling company in return.
the guys at aol didn't like wrestling so wcw was sold and bought by, wwe!
after some aborted attempts to relaunch the nWo, wwe decided to let it become a memory, but still hold the naming rights.
fast forward to 2007
, trump freshly fired from reality tv show the apprentice, kept his
media profile high by joining the wwe and headline wrestlemania in a hair vs hair match.
the appearances by trump led to him being inducted to the wwe hall of fame in 2013
wwe own the trademark nWo, trump has made several appearances for the wwe.
