Pro wrestling gets a pretty bad rap in the media, but wrestlers DO perform good deeds now and then. Especially John Cena. John recently granted his 300th wish for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, making him the organization’s all-time leader.
As for other sporting do-gooders, it’s not clear if these guys are second and third, but Make-A-Wish notes that Michael Jordan has granted 200 wishes, and Kobe Bryant has granted 100.
On yesterday’s Good Morning America, Cena surprised a 7-year-old boy who suffers from a spinal condition with tickets to the upcoming, 1,000th episode of Monday Night Raw. Cena says he wants to grant 1,000 wishes. He is the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s most requested celebrity.
Hulk Hogan started the trend of wrestlers granting wishes, and back in the ’80s, HE was the foundation’s top dog.
