John Cena turned a child’s fantasy into a real-life storybook ending – showing up to meet a boy whose family was said to have fled Ukraine… just to meet the wrestling superstar.
WWE released this video earlier in the week, showing JC appearing in Europe to meet Misha Rohozhyn – a teenager with Down syndrome, who has been forced to flee his hometown of Mariupol in recent months due to the Russian attack.
The story goes… Misha, who doesn’t speak, was confused and upset about leaving the house – as he didn’t quite understand what was going on. So his mother told him a story to help him.
She convinced her son that they had to leave so they could go have a one-on-one with Cena… who is Misha’s hero. The kid has a ton of clothes with John’s face on it, so hearing that…he may have been convinced to embark on the dangerous journey.
As a sweet feeling is in itself, it gets even better…because John was apparently made aware of this teenager’s dream and ventured to Amsterdam – where they had successfully eloped – and come full circle on what had been promised. Totally. Impressive.
The video itself tells the whole story, so we’ll let John speak for himself as to why he did this and what exactly it means to him… but more importantly, to Misha.
Seems like this encounter was everything the teen could hope for and more. Once again, John proves why he’s a class act – especially when it comes to his work with children.
Our sincere thanks to
