DETROIT – WWE helped make dreams come true for Matthew Sunday night when the teen met his favorite Superstar, Christian, before watching Night of Champions live!
“I met Matthew today. He’s an 18-year-old, big WWE fan from Flint, Mich. He made it down here to Detroit to catch his first-ever show live,” Christian told WWE.com.
“His dad tells me he’s an avid fan. He and his brothers watch every single week – they never miss a show. But this is the first time they’ve gotten to experience WWE live, so they were pretty excited about it.”
In-ring veteran spent time with the teen from Rainbow Connection before the live pay-per-view at Joe Louis Arena.
“I kind of filled them in that it’s nothing like what they see on TV – it’s a whole different feeling when you’re here and you see everything up close and personal,” Christian explained. “The atmosphere is unreal. They couldn’t have picked a better show to come and check out.”
Captain Charisma had no problem keeping the conversation with the teen since he is such a huge WWE fan.
“It was great to get a chance to sit down, one-on-one and have a conversation and say to Matthew: ‘Any questions? Just ask me whatever you want.’ He started to ask me different questions about different things about different Superstars and stuff like that. It was really cool.”
Christian was thrilled but humbled that he was able to help make Matthew’s wish come true.
“It’s very important and it’s a great honor to be able to do things like that and make a small difference in somebody’s life. To see the smiles on their faces is what it’s all about.”
