Joe Biden has been named President of the United States after beating Donald Trump to the necessary 270 electoral college votes.
Biden will be inaugurated as the 46th president of the US in January, with Pennsylvania’s 20 votes pushing him over the line.
Multiple news agencies – including the likes of BBC, CNN and the New York Times – have called the result, while some states are still yet to declare a final count.
Everyone around the world is talking about the result, and pro wrestling is no different, with WWE legend CM Punk amongst those to quickly weigh in on the news.
The former champion shared a photoshopped picture of his big title win at Money In The Bank 2011, when he blew a kiss to Vince McMahon and hopped the barrier with the gold in hand.
He replaced himself with Biden in the snap, and shared it as a response to Vince’s wife Linda McMahon, who previously served as a member of Trump’s cabinet, and had tweeted a message of support for the outgoing president.
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley – who has been outspoken throughout the election – also weighed in, tweeted some rather celebratory emojis and adding: ‘FEELING HAPPY’
Wrestler-turned-actor Dave Bautista hasn’t shied away from his anti-Trump stance, and it was no surprise to see him comment on the result.
He tweeted: ‘Thank you to all my brothers and sisters who stood up and spoke out against lies, hate and division for 4 exhausting years to fight for decency. I’ll see you in Georgia.’
Meanwhile, plenty of wrestling fans have been sharing a clip of Trump being hit by a Stone Cold Stunner.
There’s no video-editing wizardry here – this actually happened during the much-hyped Battle of the Billionaires, which saw Trump and WWE owner Vince McMahon represented by Bobby Lashley and Umaga respectively at WrestleMania 23 in 2007.
Lashley won the match, which meant McMahon got his head shaved – but the exclamation point saw Donald take Steve Austin’s signature move.
