John Cena

30x the 'Wish' Granting

Power

3/29/2011 2:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

WWE's John Cena is about to make a whole bunch of little wishes come true -- because TMZ has learned he's taking 30 kids from Make-A-Wish to WRESTLEMANIA!!!!!!

Reps from M.A.W. tell us 30 kids with "life-threatening medical conditions" from the U.S., Canada, and even Australia will attend Wrestlemania XVII this weekend in Atlanta.

But that's not all -- the kids will be going to a private autograph session with WWE Superstars and Divas ... and afterward, they'll hit a pizza party hosted by Cena!!!

We're told the M.A.W. Foundation also plans to honor John at the party for passing a huge milestone -- 200 wishes granted -- an honor shared by only three other celebs ... Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr., and Hulk Hogan.

You may not like wrestling but you have to admire John Cena for what he does for the M.A.W foundation I wish more celebrities would donate their time like Cena does.

That's swell, but I doubt there are 30 kids on the planet who's dying wish would be to attend WrestleMania. It will scare the begezuz out of them.

I hope this doesn't unleash a slew of celebrities advertising their work with MAW. Respect the kid's privacy and do it away from the cameras please.

Great job guys! Let's hope the folks at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter Universal Orlando are kind enough to follow suit. Pardon this next bit it's off topic for Harvey and the TMZ team.

Harvey,

Please consider doing TMZ live with an iPad or tablet.
Consider the benefits of having access to all your tmz photos, video and articles right at your fingertips while you broadcast live to us. As well as having the capability to control what we see on TMZ live you could interact with the media to help display and explain what we're seeing.


If you needed "Jaws Cam" to go through the office you could directly point out cool stuff in your office by drawing on the iPad or tablet. If doing a live feed you could freeze and circle points of interest on the fly.

With an iPad or tablet you could flip through comments and questions without rolling up the questions on paper. That might be an issue because who doesn't love that part?

Point is there are new advances in technology that you could take advantage of. Don't need to grip the iPad or tablet like it's do or die but it's just another tool to have that could be fun. Goto camera 6 draw devil horns on Max, it could be fun.

Might need to call ahead to the folks at Apple or Microsoft for a TMZ specifics app, which I'm sure they have ready to customize for you. You could have access to all your feeds if I'm not mistaken or at the very least it would look way cool!

I'll admit I'm not a fan of Cena when it comes to wrestling but I respect him for doing stuff like this. Sure wrestling is scripted but these guys and girls travel 300 days a year and still make time for the kids.

Wrestling died the day Hulk and Rock shook hands. That was the end of wrestling, afterwards there was nothing but scripted advertising bull, and that show is still on, and it will be on, until stupid people believe what they see.

This is a simple way of promoting your work, to advertise yourself, very great PR. If he was a really nice guy, he would not invite them on wrestlemania, where they will witness Snooki'ss epic win, but managed to give them a simple party with no paps involved.

Do not buy what he is selling. Nice guy my ...
