WWE Warrior Award Winner Announced

Published

on

WWE has announced another member of the 2018 WWE Hall Of Fame Class. Jarrius “JJ” Robertson will be receiving the Warrior Award at the event.

WWE issued the following on Monday morning:

WWE announced today that 15-year-old Jarrius “JJ” Robertson, double liver transplant survivor and longtime WWE fan, has been named the recipient of the fourth annual Warrior Award. Named after WWE Hall of Famer Ultimate Warrior, The Warrior Award is presented to an individual who has exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance and who lives life with the courage and compassion that embodies the indomitable spirit of Ultimate Warrior.

The award will be presented to Robertson by Dana Warrior, widow of Ultimate Warrior, at the 2018 WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, which will stream live on WWE Network at 8 p.m. ET on Friday, April 6, from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. USA Network will broadcast a special presentation of the ceremony on Saturday, April 7, at 10 ET/10 PT and on Monday, April 9, at 11 ET/11 PT, immediately following Raw. 

While battling biliary atresia, a rare chronic liver disease, Jarrius has undergone dozens of surgeries and has had two liver transplants in his short life. Through these trials and tribulations, Jarrius has not let this disease define who he is. His charismatic, lively and positive attitude throughout his journey has captured the attention of athletes, celebrities and people around the world. Living by the motto “It takes lives to save lives,” Jarrius strives to encourage everyone to become an organ donor.

“I can’t believe I have been chosen to be the 2018 Warrior Award recipient,” said Robertson. “Being honored by WWE means the world to me. I feel very blessed.”

“Jarrius has shown immeasurable amounts of courage, strength and positivity during the hardest of times. His infectious smile and personality light up any room, with no one the wiser of the pain he could have been enduring at any given moment,” said Stephanie McMahon, WWE Chief Brand Officer. “His determination to help others fight their toughest battles and his work to bring awareness to organ donation make him a true Warrior and the perfect recipient of this year’s award in his hometown of New Orleans.”

“It is a privilege to present Jarrius with this year’s Warrior Award at the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony,” said Dana Warrior. “He lives every day with the Warrior spirit and is an inspiration to people of all ages.”

Robertson has received honors from the New Orleans Saints and the NBA and was the recipient of the Jimmy V Perseverance Award at the 2017 ESPYS. Last year, Stephanie McMahon presented Robertson with a WWE Hero award for his courage, perseverance and dedication to helping others”

My Thoughts:

Congratulations to the young kid who has gone through so much in his short life. This is what separates WWE from so many other companies.  Kudos to WWE.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: WrestleMania To Get Stone Cold? Alexa Bliss Returns To The Ring, Gronk To WWE? and more!

News to start out your week! Commentary on WrestleMania To Get Stone Cold? Alexa Bliss Returns To The Ring, Gronk To WWE? and more!

Is WrestleMania Getting Stone Cold?

WrestleMania is often the time many legends of wrestling’s past return to WWE for the weekend festivities. According to PWInsider, WWE is looking at having arguably their biggest star in history involved with WrestleMania, Stone Cold Steve Austin. Austin has not been on WWE TV since the RAW 25th Anniversary show in January 2018.

Jason’s Take

To me, and many others, the card and storylines leading up to the pay per view have seemed the weakest they have been overall in years. Bringing in a few big names may help spark more interest.

Alexa Bliss Returns To Ring At Live Event

This past week, I discussed Alexa Bliss and her absence from the ring. It had been rumored that Bliss had been injured, however that no longer seems to be the case as Bliss returned to in ring action Friday night for WWE’s Trenton, NJ live event.

Jason’s Take

So there it is, don’t believe everything you read on the internet. Looks like Alexa Bliss wasn’t injured after all. or the injury was minor.

Rob Gronkowski Retires From NFL

I know what you are thinking, why are you posting NFL news in a wrestling news article? Bare with me. New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski retired today. The timing of this is interesting, as WrestleMania is two Sunday’s away. Also, let me point out to you what HHH had said to Sports Illustrated last month:

“Gronk has mentioned WWE before, that he loves it and said had so much fun doing it. I don’t know if it’s something he’d be seriously interested in, but that’s how the conversation started with Ronda Rousey, too. Certainly, the door is open for him at WWE.”

Jason’s Take

I am purely speculating here. But, when you break it down, Gronk to the WWE makes perfect sense.

Huge Match For SmackDown This Week

After all the backlash the WWE has received regarding Kurt Angle’s retirement match opponent, it looks like they are doing something right with Angle for a change. It was announced today that Kurt Angle will be taking on AJ Styles on this weeks episode of SmackDown Live. This is being announced as Kurt Angle’s final match on SmackDown Live.

Jason’s Take

Now why couldn’t something like this be Angle’s retirement match at WrestleMania? I know Styles isn’t as big of name as John Cena, but the match would be a hell of a lot better with him in it than Baron Corbin.

Welcome everyone to Flaming Pearl Oracles!  This will be the article discussing future events and match results through out Asia.

Before I begin, know that Asian and many in the Pacific do not provide results like you are accustomed to.  First, the promotions do not provide complete results, rather only one or two matches.  Secondly, unless you watch the matches (a few promotions are on ‘Nothing Else on TV’ livestream) you will not be provided details regarding how a match took place.

Finally, many of their articles are more advertisement than substance.  I will work to get as much information as I can to provide you the fullest account possible.
