Misha, who has Down syndrome, escaped the war-torn nation with his mother after their home in Mariupol was destroyed. Cena learned of their story when a video was shared to the WWE's YouTube channel, per The Hollywood Reporter.
"Having three days off from work right at the time when I read this story, and being an hour away by air, it turned immediately into, 'We're going,'" Cena shared.
And so, on June 5, Cena made Liana's promise to her frightened son a reality when he traveled to the home outside Amsterdam where they were staying. The meeting was also captured in a video shared to the WWE page.
Misha was clearly excited to meet the "Peacemaker" star, who showed up in full representation of his WWE persona, sporting a "Never Give Up" t-shirt and hate -- items he later gifted Misha, along with a championship belt.
