Go online the day after a WWE pay-per view, or the day after RAW. Millions of people will be sharing their opinions on the product WWE set forth the night before. Many of those opinions lately are negative. It’s easy to grab your Smartphone, tablet, IPad, or any other device and share your opinion in today’s world. We complain about booking, who is over, who is not over, horrible finishes, and the #1 complaint is always John Cena. Well we are right in the middle of the holiday season, the time of the year we want to see the good in things. Well I am going to give you some great things WWE does do, things that we can be proud to say were fans of.
The first is there partnership every October with the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Please no negative comments about how much money goes to actual research because that’s not why I bring this up. For one month a year, the WWE puts there marketing machine behind breast cancer awareness. A cause so important to many that have lost loved ones. I will admit I am a little bias to this cause because I lost my mother to this dreadful disease. Knowing a company is trying to raise awareness and money to battle this killer is comforting, knowing its WWE is pleasing.
How many have heard of “Connor’s Cure”? Connor Michalek was an 8 year old boy from Pittsburgh, Pa. He lost his battle with pediatric brain cancer in 2014, but not before he touched the WWE Superstars. If you haven’t see the video WWE put together you need to, YouTube it, but a fair warning it’s emotional. HHH and Stephanie started a foundation called “Connor’s Cure” to raise money for research into pediatric brain cancer. Not only are they raising money for this, but it’s also what they did for Connor before he past. They made all of his wishes come true, they gave him happiness. When Stephanie is on TV she is playing the character of the evil, non-caring, greedy owner, but look on her wrist and you see why that’s just a character. On her wrist she wears a “Connor’s Cure” bracelet.
As if those two things are not enough, think of all they do for the U.S Troops. Tribute to the Troops, free entrance at live events, and donations to the Wounded Warriors Project are just a few things they do. Who can forget that very emotional SmackDown segment with SGT Dan Rose? I will never get the site of him walking out of my head, which was a very inspirational thing.
Take into account the hundreds of charity and make-a-wish appearances WWE Superstars do a year it’s hard to ignore all the great things they do.
I am not asking you the readers to start liking everything you see just because of these things. I am just asking during this Holiday season in the spirit of giving, can we give WWE a little break for all the great things they do.
