A Mississippi boy fighting illness gets his wish after meeting WWE superstar Roman Reigns.
Markel Smith suffers from cerebral palsy and has endured several procedures since birth. The Mississippi native is also a WWE fanatic.
Thanks to the Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, Markel got to experience the live action of ‘WWE Friday Night Smackdown’ first hand and got to meet his favorite wrestler.
During Markel’s wish, he experienced a warm welcome by WWE staff, who lined up to greet him while the fight song played.
He was also gifted a WWE replica championship title belt to wear during his big night.
