Unforgettable adventure for Special Olympics Netherlands athletes

Special Olympics athletes meet Sasha Banks & Bayley at WWE Live in Rotterdam, the Netherlands

On Saturday May 13th WWE Live visited the Netherlands. 

Thanks to WWE being global partner of Special Olympics, we were heading to Rotterdam with 3 Special Olympics athletes, their 3 unified partners & 2 coaches. Fighting our way through the lines, we were led backstage to meet some of the WWE stars. 

The athletes met Sasha Banks, Bayley, Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson. The athletes couldn’t believe their luck & were beaming from ear to ear! After several pictures were made & signatures were obtained, it was time for the event to start. The venue was full of WWE fans supporting their favourite WWE stars. 

The athletes weren’t big fans beforehand, but before we knew it, they were running towards the ‘WWE catwalk’ to cheer on their WWE stars. We were also sat behind Rico Verhoeven (Dutch World Champion kickboxer) so the athletes decided that “we have the best seats ever. Everybody will be jealous!” Beforehand we didn’t know what to expect but it turned out to be an unforgettable adventure!
