That’s something special. Wrestlers can be in a weird place when it comes to celebrity status, as while they are television stars, they are also stuck in the wrestling bubble. While that can keep them from breaking through to another level, there is quite the status for them right where they are. That was on display recently in a very sweet moment for a group of people.
New York school teacher Victor Perry runs a wrestling club with his students where wrestling is used to teach life lessons. During their most recent meeting, WWE star Sasha Banks made a surprise appearance to meet with the students, take photos with her WWE Women’s Tag Team Title and sign autographs. Banks thanked Perry for having her and called him a great role model.

This is amazing. Check out the students losing their minds when Banks arrives:
Opinion: I will never get tired of this kind of thing. While adult fans might get tired of seeing these wrestlers every week, they are heroes to a lot of younger fans. Getting to see Banks in person is a memory they will have for the rest of their lives and it is so cool to see them getting to do something like this. That is quite the moment and it made me smile to see them so happy.
What did you think of the appearance? What is next for Banks? Let us know in the comments below.
