ANAHEIM, Calif. (June 2019): Sebastian Haro loves theme parks and WWE. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, made his dream come true, meeting WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins. Sebastian has spina bifida, a birth defect that occurs when the spine and spinal cord don’t form properly.
Kids Wish Network flew Sebastian and his grandparents to Anaheim, California for an exciting wish of all his favorite things. He was excited to arrive at The Honda Center for a live WWE event. Before the big show, Sebastian went backstage to spend time with WWE superstar Seth Rollins. He was ecstatic when meeting his idol and was surprised when Rollins gifted him two autographed WWE shirts and an official program which Rollins personally signed for him. Sebastian also came with a gift of his own – a custom championship Wish Granter shirt that the star wrestler asked him to sign. “This is the nicest gift I’ve ever received,” said Rollins. Sebastian also got to hold and take a picture with Rollins’ Universal Title.
After exchanging gifts and smiles, it was time for the show. Sebastian had front row seats and an amazing time watching his favorite Superstars perform. He also got to meet WWE Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch who gave him a shirt and hat with her logo on it. Both Lynch and Rollins won their matches and Sebastian had an exhilarating time.
During Sebastian’s wish, they stayed in beautiful accommodations at the Sheraton Park Anaheim Resort, and had fun-filled days at Universal Studios and Disneyland. They also enjoyed dinners at Tony Roma’s and The Cheesecake Factory. “Everyone made the trip all about Sebastian,” said his Grandma Kathleen. Sabastian’s favorite part of his theme park adventure was experiencing the brand new Star Wars attraction Galaxy’s Edge. He loved meeting Chewbacca and flying the Millennium Falcon.
“Our heartfelt thanks to the WWE and Seth Rollins for making Sebastian’s wish so amazing and magical,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
