After being challenged by his son-in-law Triple H, Vince McMahon got into the charitable spirit by participating in the Als Ice Bucket Challenge.

Not only did WWE set up multiple camera angles for their Chairman to take part in the challenge, but he also wore a suit while doing it. McMahon said that anything Triple H can do he can do better and encouraged all WWE fans to donate to Als research.

McMahon challenged billionaire Donald Trump, Muppet character Kermit the Frog, and TV personality Maria Menounos to participate in the challenge. All three have appeared on WWE television in the past, with McMahon and Trump having a friendly rivalry over the years.

The challenge went viral throughout 2014 and was the idea of former Massachusetts resident Pete Frates, who has had Als since 2012. Als (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) is progressive neurodegenerative disease that impacts nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. »
