Every summer since 2006, ESPN airs ‘My Wish,’ a week-long featured series focusing on children battling life-threatening conditions and illnesses.
Over the years, the WWE has granted many wishes for children who have gone through these conditions, and in on Tuesday’s episode of the series, one 17-year-old girl made a wish that she wanted to do since she was a child — meet her role model, WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon and WWE superstars.
With the details reported before the episode aired by wrestlinginc.com, the story follows in 17-year-old Rhianna Sammut, from the United Kingdom.
Sammut, who has been suffering from systemic mastocytosis, came over to America and she got to meet her idol and be given a Superstar treatment during her two days in the United States.
She was also given her own Superstar name, going by the name, ‘Rhianna Roxy,’ and also got to meet fellow superstars such as Nia Jax, who welcomed her when she first arrived.
As part of this year’s @ESPN #MyWish series, I had the pleasure of meeting Wish Kid Rhianna, who was so inspiring & strong. She came all the way from the UK to meet @StephMcMahon and see everyone in action! Watch @SportsCenter today to see her story! https://t.co/9To5zXxa6c pic.twitter.com/kfml23OybP— 🌺 (@NiaJaxWWE) July 16, 2019
The day before the episode was shown, McMahon tweeted out to the WWE fans that she got to meet Rhianna and said that she had big plans for her meeting.
Sammut and her family also had courtside seats for a taping of an NXT episode where she was recognized by ring announcer, Alicia Taylor Warrington.
