MONEY IN THE BANK: Cody Rhodes comes to the rescue of fan who was unable to attend MITB after winning tickets


Posted on 7/05/124 by Colin Vassallo



WWE champion Cody Rhodes came to the rescue of a disabled
fan who won tickets for Money In The Bank and was later told
that accessible seats were sold out and he would not be able
to go.

Mike Ashkewe won a Toys ‘R’ Us Canada competition for MITB
tickets but he received bad news when he was told by Toys
‘R’ Us that accessibility seating were all out and there was
no way for him to go.

“At this time we can offer you the cash value for the prize
($301.99) as indicated in the rules and regulations of the
contest, or the current admission tickets. Please let us
know your preference and we will expedite your prize,” the
e-mail notification said.

Ashkewe voiced his disappointment on X, tagging WWE, The
Usos, Drew McIntyre, Seth Rollins, and Cody Rhodes, saying
he was going to miss out on a cool experience because he’s
wheelchair-bound.

But hours later, the situation was rectified.

“So @CodyRhodes just called me. I am in shock and awe,” he
wrote. “Like, the American Nightmare made a Canadian dream.
Like wow. I am speechless. Thank you @wwe for everything and
making this happen.”

Replying to his post, Rhodes told him to enjoy the show and
credited WWE and Scotiabank Arena for jumping in to help.

Ashkewe also added that WWE contacted him directly to
apologize for what happened and assured him that he would be
going to the show with all his accessibility needs covered.
