WWE has been in hot water lately due to the controversy surrounding Vince McMahon and the allegations against him. Despite the controversy, the company has adopted a “business as usual” approach and remained quiet about the situation. Now, it seems the company will get a bit of a confidence boost after receiving a special honor.
ESPN has announced it will honor WWE as an official Sports Humanitarian League Champion. The major sports media outlet shared a video on social media explaining the decision to honor the company.
As part of the #SportsHumanitarian Awards, ESPN is recognizing @WWE as a Sports Humanitarian League Champion for its commitment to bring communities together by giving back, providing hope, creating inclusion, empowering communities & recognizing service both near & far.
It should be noted that WWE is among of many sports leagues and governing bodies to sponsor the awards. Interim CEO Stephanie McMahon reacted to the news on social media.
At our very core, @WWE’s mission is to put smiles on faces the world over. I am so proud of the work @WWECommunity continues to do every day to change lives through service. Thank you for this incredible honor, @ESPNCitizenship!
The Sports Humanitarian Awards will be combined with the 2022 ESPYS this year and will air on July 20th. It will be interesting to see who accepts the award on the company’s behalf.
