WWE rolled into Glasgow yesterday and hometown hero Nikki Cross wasted little time in chatting to youngsters about a cause close to her heart.

Cross, from the city, and American R-Truth both took time out of their busy schedules to visit Childline to talk with kids about an important anti-bullying campaign.

The ‘Call Out Bullying’ campaign - an NSPCC and WWE partnership - helps young people understand why bullying is unacceptable and what to do if they experience or witness it. 

Glasgow Times:

The initiative also helps parents recognise the warning signs if their child is being bullied, allowing them to speak to their children about how to combat the problem.

The two grappling stars met with a bunch of youngsters, all 11-years-old before they joined their WWE team at last night's SSE Hydro performance.

Heather Donald, Senior Supervisor at Childline in Glasgow, said: "At the NSPCC we are acutely aware of the devastating impact that bullying can have, leading to children having low self-esteem, anxiety and feeling powerless.

“It is vital that we do all we can to support children and their parents and we are thrilled to have teamed up with WWE which has a global audience of millions of children, teenagers and parents."

Childline's 'Call Out Bullying' campaign has been launched in the UK to coincide with WWE's own 'Be A STAR' programme.

That also aims to develop children's emotional intelligence to help them become healthier and happier.
