WWE's The Shield Visits the Children's Blood and Cancer Center
Yesterday, the Children's Blood and Cancer Center (CBCC) at Dell Children's Hospital in Austin, Texas, welcomed the WWE's most fearsome wrestling stable, The Shield.
Last week, members of the Texas Stars pro hockey team dropped by. This week it was pro wrestlers.
For example, this young boy wanted to meet The Shield but was nervous about approaching them…
Seth Rollins (left) and Dean Ambrose size him up…
Roman Reigns gives him the once-over too…
They invited him over and asked him to slap fives, as hard as he could…
The kid gave them all he had…
And the guys were impressed.
They later made stops to talk to kids in exam rooms, hallways and the waiting room.
Like the visit by the Texas Stars, the visit by the Ringling Bros. clowns, and by the University of Texas Lady Longhorns basketball team (members of which visit every Friday), the stopover by The Shield put smiles on young faces that hadn't smiled in far too long due to fatigue or illness.
Afterward, Seth Rollins said they had been humbled by their visit – a common response by CBCC visitors. But if the visit humbled them, it thrilled the patients, and the value of both the former and the latter defies hyperbole.
