David Otunga of the WWE gives refugee a WrestleMania treat!
Per a report from Black Sports Online, WWE star David Otunga went out of his way to do something extra special for a Haitian refugee while giving an anti-bullying speech at his high school.
The details, courtesy of TMZ, are below:
Otunga was in Florida on Friday to give an anti-bullying talk at a John F. Kennedy Middle School — and as part of the event … the school raffled off a ticket to Wrestlemania 28 this weekend in Miami Gardens, where The Rock will face off against John Cena.
The kid who won the raffle turned out to be a refugee from Haiti’s massive 2010 earthquake — and now lives with foster parents in the US. Two weeks ago, the boy’s biological mother died in Haiti.
Otunga caught wind of the boy’s story — and was so moved he decided a simple Wrestlemania ticket wasn’t enough … so he personally set up a meet-and-greet for the kid backstage … with ALL the wrestlers at the event.
Truly a heartwarming story, and it should remind everyone that although wrestlers play characters in the ring, it’s human character outside of the ring, in real life, that counts.
