I wish to be a wrestler!


“ It was an unbelievable experience. Everything was so thought out and perfect. Trent was so happy! ”

- Trent's Mom

Trent is an eleven-year-old from New Haven County with a great energy and passion for life. He likes SpongeBob SquarePants, the New York Mets and spontaneous trips to Toys-R-Us. His favorite color is red and he absolutely loves watching wrestling matches on television. It’s no surprise that, when asked to choose his one true wish, Trent wished to be a wrestler for a day.

Living life in the fast lane, Trent’s favorite wrestler is Jeff Hardy, also known as the “Charismatic Enigma” in the ring. During his numerous treatments at the hospital, Trent took his favorite Jeff Hardy figures along with him every single time. Jeff Hardy helped Trent through it all, whether he knew it or not.

Trent’s wish experience truly was a dream come true. He went to a TNA wrestling match and got to meet and hang out with Jeff Hardy. Trent said it was one of the most surreal experiences of his life and he wouldn’t trade the moment for anything. The two had a photo shoot together and Jeff used the opportunity to paint Trent’s face with wrestling war paint.

Trent took a tour of Jeff’s personal locker room and watched him pin down another wrestler in a live match. Trent also practiced his own skills and learned some new moves to try on his friends. “I performed in front of 1,000 people and I was a little scared, but it was one of the greatest experiences of my life,” Trent said.

Trent’s mom shares: “It was an unbelievable experience. Everything was so thought out and perfect. Trent was so happy!”
