Roman Reigns, Seth Rollins, Sasha Banks, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon and WWE Ambassador Dana Warrior paid the kids a visit to celebrate their courage and make them honorary WWE Superstars.
The pediatric patients have been working on their WWE persona during the past two weeks including developing their character and name, creating ‘ring gear,’ picking entrance music and designing graphics.
The patients were announced in front of the crowd and cheered on by the WWE stars at Children’s Medical Center Dallas.
Other patients, families and team members were in the crowd to celebrate the superstars as they walked across the stage
Jacob Mowl, a 15-year-old patient, said becoming a WWE Superstar was “the best moment of his life.”
