On June 3, London was rocked by yet another terror attack when three men crashed a van into a crowd of people before exiting and attacking people with knives in the busy area of London Bridge.
One of the men at the scene of the crime that night was off-duty police officer Charlie Guenigault, a WWE fan who happened to be wearing his Sami Zayn “Worlds Apart” shirt, and naturally did his best to stop the assailants — charging the men, and in the process, sustaining stab wounds to the head, leg, back and stomach — wounds which required a two-week stay in hospital and emergency surgery.
When WWE learned of his heroism and what happened, they worked alongside his father and the Police Federation to set up a surprise honor to him yesterday. Unbeknownst what was happening, Charlie was taking to an upscale hotel where he was met by Paul “Triple H” Levesque who presented him with a signed WWE title and a personal message from one of his favorite WWE superstars, Sami Zayn.
‘The Game’ also had some words of praise as you’d expect:
To run in the direction of a scary situation that can’t even be described in words, to help others … for that to be your instinct to help others … that is a hero. People say a lot of times that they watch WWE because these guys are like real-life superheroes. Well, Charlie is a real hero.
