WWE divas look pretty in pink at any time, but in October so do the guys.
WWE divas and superstars are wearing pink to once again support the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and South Floridians can show their support by purchasing and wearing customized WWE pink “Rise Above Cancer” T-shirts of their favorite WWE divas and superstars during the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view on Sunday, Oct. 27 at the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami.
“I’m very proud of WWE and WWE fans,” Cena said during a phone interview. “I think when you go to Hell in a Cell [in Miami] on Sunday, you’ll be amazed at how much pink you’ll see. That’s because this is the second year as a partner with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation, where every single superstar -- not just me -- transitions the color of their merchandise to pink, and a portion of the proceeds goes to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.”
WWE will donate to Komen 20 percent of the retail sales price of all specialty “Rise Above Cancer” merchandise sold. The standout effort continues through Dec. 31 on www.WWEShop.com and at all WWE live events.
“As you would see at many sporting events, a lot of athletes will wear pink to show their support,” Cena said, “but in WWE, not only do our superstars show their support but our fans show their support by contributing to a great cause.”
At Hell in a Cell on Sunday in Miami, pink isn’t the only color you’ll see. Red will probably be a common color during a couple of matches.
Daniel Bryan faces Randy Orton in the main event for the vacant WWE title in a Hell in a Cell.
The Hell in a Cell is a 24-foot-high roofed cell (enclosed steel cage) structure surrounding the ring and ringside area. In a Hell in a Cell match, there are no disqualifications or countouts (also no escape). It’s also a good way to prevent outside interference like what occurred at Battleground.
The only way to win Hell in a Cell is by pinfall or submission inside the ring. Shawn Michaels, who’s been involved in a few Hell in a Cell matches, is the guest referee.
CM Punk battles Ryback and the guru of grovel Paul Heyman in a grudge handicap match inside Hell in a Cell.
With bad blood between combatants and a steel cell, red is usually customary in those type matches.
Nonetheless, pink is still the primary color throughout the WWE Hell in a Cell pay-per-view.
The WWE fanbase, collectively known as the WWE Universe, is strong, especially the South Florida community and Miami-Dade County in particular, which hosted WrestleMania 28, WWE’s Super Bowl, in 2012 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens.
The AmericanAirlines Arena, which houses WWE Hell in a Cell on Sunday, has been the site of many high-profile WWE events, including the WWE Hall of Fame during WrestleMania 28 Week and WWE Raw the night after WrestleMania 28.
And the fans enjoy showing their WWE signs, T-shirts and figurines as much as Dolph Ziggler likes showing off.
Pink has been part of Ziggler’s color scheme. Pink is also part of WWE’s history.
Bret The Hitman Hart and Jim The Anvil Neidhart, the Pink-n-Black Attack with Jimmy Hart, made pink very fashionable and powerful. All in the family, The Hart Dynasty (Harry Smith, Tyson Kidd and Nattie Neidhart) wore the colors. Nattie, a beautiful and athletic WWE diva and daughter to The Anvil, is proud to continue wearing the pink, supporting her family and the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
