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.

    on

    MLW Fusion

    We’re now merely just over a week away from Major League Wrestling’s return to Queens, New York next Thursday night for its next Fusion television tapings and the card continues to fill out.

    With a number of big matches already scheduled for the event, today it has been announced that Low Ki will be defending his MLW World Heavyweight Championship against former AAA World Cruiserweight Champion Daga:

    LOW KI TO DEFEND WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP NEXT THURSDAY AGAINST DAGA AT MLW’S FUSION TV TAPING IN NEW YORK CITY

    NEW YORK – Salina de la Renta has had her hands full with Konnan and a very public split with the World Tag Team Champions.  Now, Konnan has turned his attention towards the World Heavyweight Championship, which has triggered a title match for next Thursday.  World Heavyweight Champion (presented by Salina de la Renta) vs. Daga (cornered by Konnan) has been signed for MLW FURY ROAD: an MLW Fusion TV taping. Tickets start at just $20 at www.MLWtickets.com.

    At a private MLW beIN SPORTS corporate event yesterday, Konnan, Low Ki and Salina de la Renta exchanged words.  Reportedly, Konnan called out Low Ki’s strong style game, which the reigning World Champion to exception to.

    Things quickly escalated with Low Ki offering Konnan an open contract for a title match if Konnan could “produce a luchador with any strong style game.”  Konnan, never one for a loss for words or strategy, took them up on their challenge.  One call later former AAA World Cruiserweight Champion Daga was in and making plans to train for the big fight.  By 10:40 p.m. EST league officials had a title bout signed for next Thursday in New York City.

    Daga, known for his technical prowess, uses what he refers to as “Mexican Strong Style”.  Daga has explained this version as blending strong style with a Mexican twist.  Often finishing opponents with the rear naked choke, Daga is a new era hybrid wrestler.

    Daga has been generating a lot of buzz in 2018.  Now he finds himself in a bid for the world championship on just nine days notice.  Can Daga finish off a big year with a big title win on the national spotlight?

    One thing is for sure: Daga promises to show what Mexican fighting spirit is as he debuts in grand fashion in the Big Apple next Thursday at the Melrose Ballroom.
