Various media outlets are featuring stories about former WWE Champion John Cena treating 21 Make-A-Wish kids to a private screening this past Thursday of his newly released film “Bumblebee”.
The various reports also state each child received bags, snacks, drinks and hang time with Cena. Some of the kids even did Cena’s signature “You Can’t See Me” hand gesture with him on the Red Carpet.
Later in the evening, Cena and “Bumblebee” co-star Hailee Steinfeld, along with Make-A-Wish staff took some of the kids to pose for pictures at the Empire State Building, which was lit up in yellow to celebrate Make-A-Wish’s commitment to brighten the lives of children.
