DoSomething.org and WWE Take On Bullying For Second Straight Year

DoSomething.org and WWE Take On Bullying For Second Straight Year

For the Second Straight Year WWE has partnered with DoSomething.org to take on Bullying. After blogging about this program last year, my son was proud to do many projects for school on anti-bullying.

DoSomething.org is one of the largest global organizations for young people and social change, and global entertainment company WWE and its Be a STAR anti-bullying initiative, are teaming up for The Bully Text: Superstar Edition. The campaign, now in its second year, gets young people to take action around bullying by playing an SMS text message game.

 

From August 3rd until Monday, August 31, young people can virtually work their way through six levels of scenarios with guidance from WWE Superstars and Divas, including Roman Reigns®, Dean Ambrose®, Paige®, Natalya® and Alicia Fox®. Then, each player is given options to stand up and speak out against bullying. For example, “You sit behind Roman. Someone in the back of the bus keeps throwing paper airplanes at him. Do you A) Play it cool- it’s not your fight or B) play Superman?” Along the way, players will see how their anti-bullying skills compare to others, and ultimately whether they’ve earned the WWE World Heavyweight Championship title in bullying prevention. Every player will also receive the chance to win a Be a STAR rally at his or her school or community center.

 

“WWE’s massive reach and stellar talent have helped us activate thousands of young people around anti-bullying,” said Naomi Hirabayashi, chief marketing officer at DoSomething.org. “We’re excited to rally WWE fans around this issue for year two to make it bigger and better than ever!”

 

“We are proud to once again partner with DoSomething.org and provide thousands with resources to help put an end to bullying in their communities,” said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer. “Utilizing our global assets and larger than life WWE Superstars and Divas, we are confident that this campaign will help educate young people on the dangers of bullying and encourage them to stand up for themselves and others.”

 

In 2014, nearly 100,000 young people played the Bully Text game. To play Bully Text this year, text BULLY to 38383 or visit DoSomething.org/bully*.

WWE Superfan Battling Cancer Meets his Favorite Superstars and Divas

WWE Superfan Battling Cancer Meets his Favorite Superstars and Divas
As my readers know , our house is filled with WWE fans not just my son, but my husband , nephew , myself and my son’s friends gather around the television for every pay per view event, Monday Night Raw and Smack Down Thursdays. I explain to my son that the WWE Superstars are sports entertainers and that he is not supposed to mimic what they do on television, and usually I get a response well what about all the good they do for Connor’s Cure , Make a Wish  and of course the Dream Foundation. I guess he has a point there. When I read the piece on how WWE Superfan Battling Cancer Meets his Favorite Superstars and Divas I just had to share it with you all.
Last Sunday night, in Roanoke, VA, WWE and the Dream Foundation teamed up so that a WWE fan battling lung cancer could have his dream fulfilled.  He was able to attend the show and meet with some of his favorite WWE Superstars and Divas.  An excerpt from the story is below and the full story is available here :http://www.wset.com/story/29436141/man-battling-lung-cancer-meets-wwe-superstarFor one night, cancer was not on their minds, as WWE Superstars came in, one by one, to greet the Fulchers, and brighten their spirits. Kisses from WWE Diva Cameron, and a bear hug from Ryback made their situation the last thing on their minds. Just before showtime, the Fulcher’s favorite wrestler, Roman Reigns, stopped by to meet his biggest fan.

For the WWE Superstar, it’s a moment that is uplifting to him as well, saying “When you can take a little bit of extra time to connect personally with somebody, and make a friend. That’s what’s awesome, the friendships, the relationships. That’s what you take with you.”

For this #WWEMOM I love reading these pieces and sharing them with my son. This summer after reading this he has decided to take a reading challenge and raise money for Connor’s Cure and the Dream Foundation. Not only is it teaching him to care for other’s but it’s increasing his knowledge.

 

Thank you to the WWE Superstars who give so much of their personal time to make precious days a little better.

 

I was not compensated for this post. We love the WWE and what it stands for with family and core values.

 

Happy Father’s Day from WWE Diva Natalya!

Happy Father’s Day from WWE Diva Natalya!

If you follow along with me on Instagram and Twitter  you know that we are HUGE WWE Fans. From PayPerView events to watching Monday Night Raw every Monday and let’s not forget Thursday Night Smackdown. Being a #WWEMOM I watch along with my son , my nephew and my husband. Each week we make our predictions before they begin and the men in my life are in their glory. But for this Diva #WWEMOM my personal favorite WWE show to watch is Total Divas, with Natalya being my favorite Diva, strictly because she let’s us into her life. Personally I can relate she has strong family values and ties. When I read her blog Happy Father’s Day from WWE Diva Natalya, I had to share it with my readers. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did!

Natalya and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart

Natalya and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart

Most people know that I have followed in my dad’s footsteps professionally, carrying on the Hart family legacy in WWE. However, what people don’t know, is how much I’ve followed his example outside of the ring. It’s easy for people to think that because of my last name, I was handed my position as a WWE Diva.  The truth is, I struggled a lot to make it to the WWE.  I am grateful for those doors being slammed in my face. I kept going, following my heartbeat, my pulse, and what made me excited to wake up every morning, my love for wrestling. I didn’t realize it at the time, but all of the tiny wars and setbacks would make me stronger than I could ever imagine. My dad reminded me that I would become more skilled learning how to “drive” on that winding road, than on that straight, “perfect” road. So I kept going. I persevered through years of being rejected, trying to make it to WWE. It is true, I am my father’s daughter. Our professions may be the same, but I’ve learned much more about life from my father than I could ever learn about wrestling. Growing up, my father instilled in me several key values that have made me the person I am today. Most importantly, hard work and determination pay off, family will always come first and having fun is more important than winning. After all, in the end, it’s the fun stuff in life that we want to remember!

My father always had goals. Before he came to WWE, he was a world class shot-putter. He went to UCLA on a full scholarship. He played in the NFL for the Dallas Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders. Then, he went on to become a multiple-time WWE Tag Team Champion.  My dad was always working toward something. He had this incredible discipline inside of him. When he put his mind to it, there was nothing he couldn’t do. He showed me that if you never stop setting small goals, big dreams come true as long as you have enough determination and motivation to not give up. He taught me that just because someone tells you can’t do something or a door closes, doesn’t mean you should throw in the towel. That’s when you grab the towel and hit the ground running!  Each set back and each obstacle is a learning experience that provides the knowledge you need to achieve your goal on the next try. My dad showed me that it’s ok to fall down,  because when you get back up, you’ll be strong like an ANVIL.

I’m also incredibly grateful that my father showed me what unconditional love looks and feels like. He has lived through major triumphs and some difficult pitfalls. Through it all, he never forgot the importance of family. My father has always believed that family is EVERYTHING. Winning the Divas Championship was a wonderful feeling and getting to be in the ring during WrestleMania is indescribable. However, I came to the realization a long time ago, that for me, if I don’t build relationships with people that share in my joy and help carry me when I stumble, my accomplishments won’t mean anything. Every time my dad watches me wrestle & cheers me on, I feel like I’m the champion of the world. 

Finally, my father taught me the importance of having fun… F-U-N! My father is my biggest supporter, and he is always there to remind me to smile, pause and enjoy the moment. I can still hear his words ringing loudly before I walk out for every match: “Don’t forget to look out at the crowd and connect with them. They believe in you the same way that I do.”  Being a WWE Diva is hard work, there’s no doubt about that. There are long hours, lots of traveling and intense training. However, I wouldn’t trade it for the world because I really love what I do. My father reminds me to this day how lucky I am that my passion is wrestling because I never have to work a day in my life.” (Insert ANVIL laugh while pulling his goatee!) For that reason, I never gave up on my dream, and now I get to live it every day. My dad pushed me to keep going because he knew I loved this. He knew how much fun it was for me. My happiness made him happy. 

Recently, I moved to a new house. I hired movers, thinking I would just sit back and let them take care of everything. I hate moving! My cats hate moving. My goldfish hates moving (Ok, I don’t have a goldfish, but you get it!).  Instead, my father insisted on coming to oversee the move. He took such pride in taking the reins and making sure everything went smoothly. What is normally an exhausting and stressful event turned out to be one of the best days I’ve ever had with my dad. I also schemed up a plan with my dad to break a plastic lion head my mom bought me at a garage sale. I secretly thought it was absolutely hideous. I didn’t have the heart to tell her I did not want it hanging front and center in my living room. Who else could I turn to? Of course, I asked my dad for his assistance! I told him to pretend he tripped over the sprinkler outside and “accidentally” broke this horrendous plastic piece that was truly uglier than any garden gnome I’ve ever seen. Without fail, my dad happily body-slammed this plastic hunk of junk onto my driveway, risking my mom yelling at him if she had caught him. Imagine what the neighbors were thinking!?  My dad did it for me! Mission accomplished! He broke that plastic lion head and my mom’s feelings were spared! Now that is LOVE.  During the move, we worked hard, we laughed, and when he couldn’t quite get the giant couch out the door by himself, I got the other end and we moved it together. 

 

My father has taught me about love, perseverance, reflection, and how to throw a great punch! I am so proud of my dad. I wouldn’t be where I am today without him. I’m still working on growing my Anvil style goatee so I can be just like him 🙂 

 

Happy Father’s Day, Daddy!  And Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful dads out there!

I hope you truly enjoy reading Natalya’s Father’s Day Blog as much as I did. Natalya is truly hands on with her fans. Just this past week I tagged her in an Instagram  photo of my son and nephew who were sporting Cesaro & Kidd tee shirts. For those of you who are not WWE savvy Tyson Kidd is Natalya’s husband. WELL Nattie not only “liked” my photo she commented as well! Natalya’s actions are from the heart not only with her family but with her fans.

Connor Michalek WWE’s first ever #Warrior Award Recipient

Connor Michalek  WWE’s first ever #Warrior Award Recipient

Connor Michalek, a Pittsburgh native and passionate WWE fan who passed away last year from cancer, will be the first-ever recipient of The #Warrior Award, which will be presented each year at the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.  The Warrior Award will be given to someone who has exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance, and who lives life with the courage and compassion that embodies the indomitable spirit of WWE Hall of Famer, The Ultimate Warrior.  This year, the award will be presented by The Ultimate Warrior’s widow, Dana Warrior, and WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan to Steve Michalek, Connor’s father.

WWE will present an award in my husband’s name each year at the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony,” said Dana Warrior.  “Connor displayed all of the positive traits that Warrior stood for, and he is the perfect recipient for this inaugural award. I am sure that Warrior is smiling today, knowing that this award is being given to a true warrior.”

With the love of his family and WWE Superstars as well as the tremendous care by Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC, Connor battled cancer like a true warrior for as long as he could, and his charisma made him a local celebrity in Pittsburgh. Connor’s spirit inspired WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon and WWE Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events & Creative, Paul “Triple H” Levesque to launch “Connor’s Cure,” a fund dedicated to furthering Pediatric cancer research.

 

Connors’ Cure bracelets are available to purchase for $5.00 .   Whenever we have attended a WWE event we have  purchased bracelets to support  #ConnorsCure. I must say that whenever I wear mine it symbolizes to me to take a moment and be thankful.  We try to teach our son to care for others.  Connor has touched his heart and he reminds me each time we head to a WWE Event to text our donation for Connor.   As a parent I couldn’t imagine what his parents have gone through , but I hope they know that #ConnorTheCrusher is an inspiration to this #WWEMOM and many other #Warriors.

A small reminder of Connor who made a HUGE impact #ConnorTheCrusher

The WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will air live on Saturday, March 28 on WWE Network at 8 p.m. If you don’t already have the WWE Network for $9.99 it is the most worthwhile monthly expense you will have.

This is always a favorite time of year for the Main Men in my life. Once the holiday hustle and bustle is over they know is time for Monster Jam.  Since we had our cousins from out of state this weekend. We had the chance to show them what Monster Jam is all about, they loved it.

During our family favorite pre show party in the pits, we arrived a bit late due to traffic. We rushed in and purchased shirts for the children to get signed. Zane Rettew who drives Stinger  saw that the kids were a bit upset because they were unable to get online to get autographs and missed meeting the drivers, stopped his line reached over and signed all the kids shirts and then posed for a picture. As a parent it showed me he was a class act!
