John Cena wins WWE Championship, celebrates with Make-A-Wish kid

What a guy.

John Cena became WWE Champion for the 16 time on Sunday night at the Royal Rumble—tying Ric Flair’s record—and celebrated by granting a wish.

After raising the belt, Cena went into the stands and celebrated with a kid in the Make-A-Wish program, hi-fiving him, putting the belt on him, posing for the camera and apparently sending him home with a shirt filled with autographs.

Michael Cole mentioned on WWE Network that Cena’s granted over 500 wishes.
