The horrific tragedy of two weeks ago, when a suicide bomber set off an explosive at an Ariana Grande concert inside the Manchester Arena, may have forced a cancellation of tonight's NXT Live Event, but it couldn't put a dent in the massive hearts of a few NXT stars, who took the opportunity to visit an eight-year-old WWE superfan.
Lily Harrison spent two weeks in the hospital recovering from her injuries, but was sent home on Monday. Her mother, Lauren Thorpe, remains hospitalized.
But as reported in the Manchester Evening News, WWE NXT Champion Bobby Roode, along with UK natives Nikki Cross and Mark Andrews, made a surprise visit to see Lily at her home on Tuesday morning, bringing a "sackful" of gifts for Lily and the whole family. The real prize was an NXT title belt that had been signed by the NXT roster.
As part of the surprise, Lily and her father Andrew were able to FaceTime with Lily's favorite superstar, Sasha Banks. Banks promised to visit Lily in person when WWE is in Manchester this November.
Not to be outdone, Ember Moon and several other NXT and WWE UK stars were helping out at the Manchester Red Cross. Moon tweeted out this video:
