WWE superstar John Cena has long been a supporter of the Make-A-Wish organization, and has spent precious time with countless recipients of the organization’s amazing work. During most encounters, the fans can’t stop talking to their hero during their meeting.
But heck, sometimes these Make-A-Wish kids are downright speechless.
For example, meet Carson. He’s one of the latest kids to get the chance to meet with John. This particular meeting was shared on John’s FB page, which showed the little boy holding a sign over his face. “I practice invisibility,” laughed John, as he tried to get the little boy to talk. “Are you excited for tonight?”
And while little Carson remained tongue-tied, the moment shows just how much these meetings can mean to little ones dealing with big challenges.
John is just one of the many WWE wrestlers who volunteer their time to meet with Make-A-Wish recipients. In fact, back on August 19 a group of wrestlers including AJ Styles, Dolph Ziggler, Nikki Bella, and Seth Rollins, as well as WWE Ambassador Dana Warrior, met with Make-a-Wish children and their families before SummerSlam.
“Knowing what the parents go through and the struggle the kids have been through and the battle,” AJ said in an interview with the Miami Herald. “These kids are so strong, but also their parents.”
