The Creative Coalition and WWE, co-founders of the Be a STAR (Show Tolerance And Respect) anti-bullying initiative, today announced the launch of the S.T.A.R. Alliance, a group of actors, musicians, comedians, athletes, television personalities and members of The Creative Coalition, who have joined together to help put an end to bullying.  (See the full list of members here).

The WWE is working hard to break down prejudices and promote a culture of fairness and respect through programs and initiatives that educate, enrich, and empower people to create a positive social environment for all, regardless of age, race, religion, sexual orientation, or physical ability.

Be a STAR is an anti-bullying initiative co-founded in 2011 by The Creative Coalition and WWE. Its mission is to encourage young people to treat each other with tolerance and respect through education and grassroots initiatives.

*My family and I were invited to this attend WWE’s Money in the Bank live pay per view event and received tickets at no charge. No other compensation was received. All opinions expressed here are strictly my own and were not influenced in any way**

Back in March I chaperoned my youngest son’s class field trip to the aquarium.  On both the bus ride to the aquarium and the ride home, all the little boys talked about was wrestling.  John Cena this and Kane that.  It was really cute, but prior to that, I didn’t realize that my son knew anything about any of the WWE wrestlers.  When we got home that night I asked him about it and he sure schooled me.  He knew them all and talked my ear off for a good half hour about the WWE and mostly John Cena.

When my family received an invitation to attend the live pay-per-view (PPV) event, Money in the Bank on June 29, 2014 at the TD Garden in Boston, I knew it was going to be the highlight of my boys summer!

We arrived at the show about an hour before the event started and my boys were super excited when we got there and they saw the ring all set up!

WWE Money in the Bank PPV

At the beginning of the show, Former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan made an appearance and gave the audience an update on his neck surgery recovery was going.  As soon as they announced his name, the crowd went insane.  They cheered him for a good couple of minutes and after everyone settled down, he told us that he didn’t know when he was going to return and that he actually might need to have another surgery.
