WWE NXT Champion Bobby Roode, WWE NXT women’s wrestler Nikki Cross and WWE United Kingdom Championship competitor Mark Andrews were among the names who made a surprise visit to 8-year-old Lily Harrison at her home in Manchester today.

For those unaware, Lily was one of the 50+ people injured in the Manchester Arena attacks at an Ariana Grande concert back on May 22nd. Lily was treated in hospital for serious shrapnel wounds after the attack. Lily’s parents Adam and Lauren were also injured in the attack. Lauren was able to join the family at the recent One Love Manchester concert before she was taken back to the hospital.

In an interview with Sky News, Lily was asked asked how she was feeling after meeting Bobby Roode and Mark Andrews and admitted feeling more nervous meeting her wrestling idols than she did when Ariana Grande paid her a visit in hospital stating, “I felt sick a few minutes ago, but now I don’t!”

Out of respect for those affected by the attack, WWE NXT cancelled an event at the Manchester Arena that was due to take place today, while WWE offered fans the opportunity to use their tickets for another event, while the company also pledged to make a donation to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund. Speaking about the visit, WWE NXT Champion Bobby Roode said, “We like to support people like Lily and all the people suffering from what happened over here in Manchester. It’s always fun to see people smile.”

Lily’s father Adam noted that the family have tried to stay upbeat since the attack happened stating, “We don’t spend too much time worrying about times gone by. There’s nothing we can do about it now. Luckily our daughter is a shining example. Lily is brilliant. She’s my best mate at the end of the day. That’s what I said to the surgeon as she was taken to theatre. Please make sure you take care of her, that’s my best pal.”
