It seems any time Dwayne Johnson gets in front of a microphone or camera, he's asked about a potential run for the presidency in 2020.
While he's been somewhat dubious in his answers, there's no doubting The Rock's charisma and personality would certainly win him fervent support from the public. With that in mind, should Johnson decide to run for President in 2020 and if he's elected, we've come up with a potential cabinet that he could potentially call upon to help him shape the future of the world.
There's fifteen secretary positions to fill, and we've got fifteen WWE superstars who are perfect for the job. We begin with...
SECRETARY OF STATE - 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin
The Rattlesnake is a skilled negotiator and he's also stunned the current US President and the current Administrator of the Small Business Administration and former WWE CEO Linda McMahon. Not only that, Austin's a well-traveled man from his time with the WWE and he knows how to be firm and fair with his opponents.
TREASURY SECRETARY - 'Million Dollar Man' Ted DiBiase
Ted DiBiase is no stranger to high finance and the corporate world, and as the owner of the Million Dollar Belt, he's got a keen eye for making good deals when needed. Given his relationship with Irwin R. Schyster and his vast personal wealth, there's no doubt in our minds that we'd all be living the Million Dollar Dream with Ted DiBiase as Treasury Secretary. He doesn't even need the money, folks.
VETERAN AFFAIRS SECRETARY - Sgt. Slaughter
A veteran wrestler and former US Marine drill instructor himself, the men and women of the US Armed Forces would definitely respond to Sgt. Slaughter's no-nonsense approach.
EDUCATION SECRETARY - Matt Striker
A former teacher himself, Matt Striker was a host of NXT and an in-ring talent where he had a gimmick as a teacher. Perfect choice, really.
HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES SECRETARY - AJ Styles
You're probably wondering why AJ Styles would be Health Secretary, right? He's more used to dishing out and receiving injuries than be able to sort out health issues of a nation. However, once upon a time, AJ Styles was an ambulance driver - so he's at least got some kind of experience with the healthcare industry and its problems, right? Right? (tumbleweed)
COMMERCE SECRETARY - JBL
If there was anyone on the list who could potentially be a real Secretary of Commerce, it's John Bradshaw Layfield. He's employed currently as a Senior Vice President of Northeast Securities, he's also known for shrewd investment in the stock market, and he's also got one of the most devastating clotheslines in wrestling. These three items make him the perfect Secretary of Commerce, and he could power-bomb anyone who doesn't make a good deal with him through the table.
AGRICULTURE SECRETARY - Bray Wyatt
He's from a rural part of America and he's in touch with nature. That makes sense, right?
LABOR SECRETARY - Kevin Nash
Well, he did say it was all a work. Work = labor. You see where this is going.
HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT SECRETARY - 'Hacksaw' Jim Duggan
He's been carrying that 2x4 around with him for the past thirty-odd years. Time to put it to use and help build affordable housing for all, Jim Duggan.
TRANSPORTATION SECRETARY - Diesel
If it doesn't work out with Kevin Nash as Labor Secretary, he can always come back as Diesel and try again with Transportation Secretary.
ATTORNEY GENERAL - The Undertaker
The Undertaker was known for handling disputes behind close doors with fellow wrestlers with the so-called Wrestler's Court, essentially a kangaroo court that was presided over by Taker and a number of veteran wrestlers. Justice was swift and decisive, and Taker's long years of wise counsel would stand to him as a top-notch choice for AG.
INTERIOR SECRETARY - Ric Flair
The Secretary of the Interior is responsible for "the management and conservation of most federal land and natural resources," and as we already know, Ric Flair's been all over the place and he's the Nature Boy - so nature is already in the title. This seems like a good fit, but don't be in the least bit surprised if 'Ol Naitch tries to make a run for the top job after a year or two in office.
ENERGY SECRETARY - Kofi Kingston
Nobody knows how to get a crowd pumped and bring real energy to the ring like Kofi Kingston. All they'd need to do is hook him up the US National Power Grid and his high-flying antics would provide clean, renewable and fun-filled energy for generations to come.
HOMELAND SECURITY SECRETARY - Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns, formerly known as The Shield
Aside from APA, The Shield were the best hired goons money could buy in the WWE. Reform The Shield, stop this whole business of trying to put Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins over and get them back together.
DEFENSE SECRETARY - John Cena
Well, he always did have that soldier thing as part of his gimmick, so that could work.
