WWE Superstars John Cena, Samoa Joe, Natalya, Sasha Banks, WWE announcer JoJo and WWE Ambassador Dana Warrior welcomed 28 Make-A-Wish children and their families, as well as kids from seven other wish agencies from around the world, to Mardi Gras World in New Orleans during WrestleMania Week.
The kids took part in a mini-Mardi Gras float parade in the streets of New Orleans with their favorite Superstars, made Mardi Gras masks, and most importantly, were inducted into WWE’s Circle of Champions by Cena.
“The Circle of Champions is very important to me because it is what WrestleMania is all about – allowing families to come together and experience something wonderful, something exciting, something magical,” Cena said.
World Wish Day is April 29 – a milestone of the first date that inspired the creation of Make-A-Wish. World Wish Day marks a month-long effort throughout April to highlight how wish-granting can provide the mental strength kids need to fight their illness and to harness the collective muscle of donors and volunteers to make the impossible, possible. Cena is the cornerstone of this year’s campaign, “It takes more than magic, it takes muscle.”
