On Monday’s episode of Raw, a young cancer patient got the chance to live out his dream of being a WWE superstar.
8-year old Elijah Mainville was diagnosed with neuroblastoma at a young age, but the tough youngster caught the eye of WWE when he sent in an audition tape for their reality TV show ‘Tough Enough’ a few months ago.
And Elijah must have been shocked when he received a heartfelt video response from WWE, in which Triple H and Stephanie McMahon invited him to the August 3 edition of Raw in San Jose, California.
The visit not only gave Elijah a chance to meet his favourite superstar, Stardust, but also to become a WWE superstar himself!
After the show, the youngster signed a contract and took on the fantastic name ‘Drax Shadow’ – a better wrestler name than most of the guys on the main WWE roster, to be honest.

And Elijah even showed off his promo skills, grabbing the microphone and telling the crowd, “Don’t fear the darkness, fear the Shadow!”
What an amazing moment. Now where can we get ourselves a Drax Shadow t-shirt?
