See WWE Superstars Meet Make-A-Wish Kids Ahead Of WrestleMania 39
The annual Circle of Champions allows Make-A-Wish Kids' dreams to come true by meeting with their favorite Superstars ahead of WrestleMania.
Ahead of WrestleMania, WWE held its annual Circle of Champions event in conjunction with the Make-A-Wish Foundation that offered 20 fans the chance to meet some of their favorite Superstars, get a tour of Universal Studios and, of course, attend the greatest night in sports entertainment, WrestleMania 39 in Hollywood.
On Friday, Superstars Liv Morgan, Carmella, Finn Balor, Omos, Bayley, and the American Nightmare himself, Cody Rhodes, joined host Alicia Taylor for a wonderful day of giving back as they met up with a slew of Make-A-Wish Kids and their families who were all bonded by one thing, their love of wrestling.

In a video for USA Network from the event, the talented Superstars can be seen mingling with the kids, singing autographs, and just generally having fun with some fans who really earned their facetime with them.
“We played, we laughed, we smiled, we colored,” Morgan says. “They gave me so many tips and tricks and advice on how to win my WrestleMania match on Sunday, so everyone better beware!”
She added: “I’m grateful, I’m happy, I’m leaving here humbled but so happy because they were so full of life and so happy to see us and they’re so happy to go to WrestleMania!”
Balor was in attendance with WWE Make-A-Wish Kid correspondent for WrestleMania weekend, Evan St. Amand, who was really excited to get to pal around with the Superstar as he made other kids’ dreams come true.
“This week is always a very very busy week for us,” Balor says. “But this is the one thing we actually really enjoy doing so we’re very happy to be here.”
Omos adds: “Today was a freaking amazing day just to hear their stories and how much they look up to us was truly inspirational.”
In addition to the Superstars, the kids were treated to a brief show from a Minion as well as Scooby Doo himself, all on hand to brighten their day and make everyone smile — including the tough-as-nails Superstars. (Because who doesn’t love Scooby?)
The event is a regular part of WrestleMania and continues a partnership the WWE has had with the Make-A-Wish Foundation for more than 30 years.
“This is always the coolest part of the weekend for me,” Bayley says in the video following the meet and greet but before the tour of Universal. “We get to meet so many kids, so many wrestling fans enjoying their first WrestleMania!”
Taylor concludes the team’s thoughts on the event noting how much it means to her to have this fame to do this work:
“That’s what it’s all about, using our platform here, reaching out to the community, and hanging out with all the Make-A-Wish Families is always super cool.”
