With Donald Trump being the first WWE Hall Of Famer to serve as President of the United States, it looks as though another could potentially run for office in 2024.
Joe Biden successfully succeeded Donald Trump in January 2021 to become the 46th President, however when he is up for re-election in 2024 there will no doubt be string of people looking to take a seat in the Oval Office.
One of those could be Trump’s fellow WWE Hall Of Famer and former AWA World Tag Team Champion, Jesse ‘The Body’ Ventura.
On the latest edition of the Talk Is Jericho podcast, Jesse Ventura discussed the possibility of running for the presidency.
I tell them, ‘Look, if you want the key to whether I’m going to run for office, look at what my hair is doing cause I said, ‘If I’m gonna run, you’re going to see me get a haircut.’
Now it’s more serious than ever. I mean, I dabbled with the Green Party two years ago ’til I found out they were split and were completely dysfunctional. But I’ve been communicating and working very close now with Andrew Yang, and Andrew Yang is the real deal and Andrew Yang is forming what’s going to be called the Forward Party. And we’re calling it that because we want to look forward into the future — we don’t want the past, we don’t want nothing to do with the [Democrats] and [Republicans].
They’re the past, this is going to be the Forward Party, and we’re hoping to get ballot access and candidates on the slate and have a presidential candidate and a convention by the 2024 election. And I’ll tell you why, Chris, right now, 60% of the country doesn’t want [Joe] Biden or [Donald] Trump.
Jesse Ventura is familiar with the political landscape, having spent four years each as the Governor of Minnesota and the Mayor of Brooklyn Park.
