Zach's wish to go to WrestleMania XXVIII!

Zach's Wish to go to Wrestlemania

“ It put a smile on our faces watching Zach experience the atmosphere of being there live... He was never so excited! ”


- Zach's mom, Debbie

As a huge wrestling fan, attending WrestleMania XXVIII was a dream come true for Zach! He could not contain his excitement as the weekend approached, thrilled and in disbelief that his wish was coming true.

The adventure kicked off with a stretch limo that took Zach and his family to the airport. Upon reaching their destination, the group attended a Make-A-Wish® dinner where they were able to meet The Big Show and Seamus, two wrestlers that Zach frequently watched on TV and his numerous DVDs. Zach could not suppress a huge smile as he shook the wrestlers’ hands, knowing this weekend would be one he would not forget.

The next day, Zach went to the Parrot Jungle for the Circle of Champions Luncheon and received a plaque from John Cena®, Seamus, and Layla. He could not believe the attention his idols were lavishing on him, and his parents loved watching his reactions as he spoke with wrestlers that he had only seen on TV. Zach and his family also attended the WrestleMania Axxess event at the Miami Convention Center. Along with his brother Eric, Zach watched live wrestling matches, saw different types of wrestling memorabilia on display, visited The Undertaker’s graveyard, and bought souvenirs to memorialize his weekend.

This all built up to the actual WrestleMania XXVIII show on Sunday night. Sun Life Stadium was hopping with over 78,000 excited fans, including Zach and Eric!

Beaming but exhausted from the non-stop action, Zach went home and proudly put his Circle of Champions plaque on display, along with the multitude of autographs he received from his weekend.

Zach had the time of his life! This trip will be something our family will remember for years to come. Watching Zach enjoy his favorite pastime was indescribable and I know he will always remember going to Wrestlemania XXVIII. ”
