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.

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 ...

You're a douchebag. You don't think a young wrestling fan would love to be at Wrestlemania? Use common sense. Why do some people have to find something negative in everything? What Cena is doing is tremendous and he's a hero for it.

Guaruntee you that the only pictures which are ever released from this event are those taken by the family of the children involved..

Cena has been a super ambassador for M.A.W for years now. in fact, no other celebrity has done more than him. 99% of the time you never hear about it. these guys and gals travel the world 300 days out of 365...they break things and pull things and some can't walk by the age of 50...it's "fake" but it's all too real. Cena may not be the best wrestler but he is the most giving and asks for nothing in return.

F*** Ina Garten and her "busy schedule"....she doesn't hold a match to Cena and his efforts. i'll forgive her when she takes a bump over the top rope.

At least there is someone who is willing to donate their time out of their REAL busy schedule to help MAW come true for alot of sick kids. John Cena I thank you! & to the comment made that this is a PR stunt. He has helped over 200 wishes come true for sick & dying kids. These are children with diseases that will eventually kill them. At least he is taking the time out to help make their wish come true! I love that MAW is doing this for the kids. At least for one day they wont have to worry about dying for 1 day.

This is one of the only good things about WWE. They have always participated in the Make a Wish Foundation and other children charities. Vince may be a creep, treat women and people of minority like dog poop but he does believe in charity and even takes the crew to honor the troops yearly. John Cena is like Superman. He does this stuff all the time and I don't think he has time to sleep at night.

John Cena is a good man, along with the others in wrestling that help kids. Keep up the good work.
Good job too, Gordon and Dale, Jr.

Whether you like wrestling or not. Knowing that guy has put in that many days of his life to make sick kids happy is a pretty cool thing. Props to Cena.
