This past Tuesday I was lucky enough to be sent to WWE Smackdown as a member of the WWEMoms. Like I always say at most events, if you’ve never been to a LIVE WWE show, it’s a must. If you’re not a fan, it will make you one, and if you are a fan, it will make you an even bigger one.
This time I wasn’t just taking my family, but was bringing a friend of mine and his 92 year old mother (Alice Boraby). We were so excited to take her. 92 years old, has been a WWE Fan forever and has NEVER been to a live event! As excited as I was to attend the event, I was even more excited to give her this opportunity to see WWE live and in person.
Her son, Naeem Boraby had told me in the past how big of a fan she was. She highlighted her TV guide for every WWE show that was coming on the air, and would always tell him he could go into another room or home when WWE was on.
Tuesday morning, as I was making our New Day signs and T-Shirts for Smackdown, I got the text that she wasn’t going to be able to make it to the show. She was in Hospice and they wouldn’t allow her permission to leave to go to the show. He was upset, I was upset, my family was upset, I was so looking forward to hanging out with her at a WWE event. She was upset as well and so looking forward to going….. Then….. We see this…….
Hospice had got a hold of the news station, and The New Day were doing a lot of media that day heading to all of the TV stations in the area. I was so THRILLED beyond belief that they took the time out to send her a personal message. The power of positivety is great, and to see my favorite wrestlers going above and beyond to make a 92 year old fans day special, even though she couldn’t attend will be forever in my heart, and makes me love them even more than I already do.
So, to 13ABC, The New Day and the WWE, thank you so much for doing this for her, we are forever grateful, and she was thrilled beyond belief. I can only hope to be around at 92 years old and STILL be a WWE Fan! Mrs. Boraby, I hope you’re feeling better soon, and maybe we can take you to the next event in town!
