STAMFORD, Conn., June 20, 2012- WWE® (NYSE:WWE) Superstar John Cena set a Make-A-Wish record today granting his 300th wish to Hop Bottom, Pa. native Jonathan Littman. Cena, a Wish Ambassador and previous recipient of the prestigious Chris Greicius Celebrity Award, is the only celebrity to reach this milestone. He continues to be one of the most frequently requested celebrity wish granters.

Seven-year-old Littman was treated to a behind-the-scenes tour and John Cena's personal seats at Monday Night Raw on June 18. Thinking he was headed to Emmy® Award-winning Good Morning America for a studio tour, Littman then joined Cena on the national morning show along with ABC News' weather editor Sam Champion during the weather report. With the help of Good Morning America and Sam Champion, his wish came true.

"For Make-A-Wish, WWE Superstar John Cena is essential to fulfilling our wish-granting mission," said David A. Williams, president and chief executive officer of Make-A-Wish America. "For years John has hosted kids and always goes above and beyond to create wishes for kids with life-threatening medical conditions, who return energized and delighted by the experience. We are fortunate to have a dedicated supporter like John and WWE to bring these children hope, strength and joy as they face a difficult challenge in their young lives."

"Jonathan Littman is a tremendous young man and such an inspiration," said WWE Superstar John Cena. "Of all the tough guys I tangle with in the WWE ring, I've never encountered more bravery or toughness than I see in each wish kid I meet. Wishing is powerful stuff."

WWE and its Superstars have been granting wishes with Make-A-Wish for more than 30 years. With over 3,500 wishes (and counting) WWE and Make-A-Wish continue their commitment to put smiles on the faces of courageous children and their families all over the world. Join John Cena and help grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions at www.wish.org/JohnCena.
