NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — A five-time world wrestling champion stopped by Nashville on Thursday.
WWE Superstar Drew McIntyre has surprised dozens of Special Olympics athletes participating in the Metro Parks DisABILITIES program.
McIntyre spent time with the athletes greeting them, answering questions and taking photos with them at the Centennial Sportsplex in Nashville. He even picked up weights and trained with the group. Before leaving, he also handed out a souvenir to remember the occasion – their own wrestling belts.
“It’s always been really important to me to give back where we can,” McIntyre said. “As WWE Superstars, we have such an impact on people’s lives.”
McIntyre frequently participates in Unified Special Olympics activities across the country.
“It was about finding where I could make the biggest difference and where it would touch me the most and make the most difference,” he told News 2. that Special Olympics was a good fit for Drew McIntyre, and it was a perfect fit. I loved every second of what we did.
McIntyre will be part of SummerSlam, which kicks off July 30 at Nissan Stadium.
This is the first time the series will take place in Nashville.
Tickets for SummerSlam go on sale this Friday, April 23 through Ticketmaster.
