Sue Aitchison: Making wishes come true at WWE for 30 years By GREG OLIVER – Producer, SLAM! Wrestling
To many, Sue Aitchison is the “wish lady” for World Wrestling Entertainment. Thirty years ago, she steered the promotion’s community relations division into partnering with “wish” agencies, which offer sick children and adults a chance to meet a WWE superstar.
Though her roles have changed over her time with WWE — she actually started as a receptionist in 1986 — her involvement with Make-A-Wish, The Dream Foundation, Dreams Come True, Rays of Sunshine, and many other wish-granting charities has not wavered.
But her emotions often do.
At an event, when in the company of a child with an incredible challenge in front of them, such as terminal cancer, Aitchison can stay strong. It’s later on that she can be overcome.
