KNX 1070′s John Brooks reports Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa on Friday attended the WWE SummerSlam Day of Service at the Algin Sutton Recreation Centerto help promote “Be a Star: Show Tolerance and Respect”.
WWE wrestler Ray Mysterio — whose real name is Oscar Gutierrez — says bullies should never be tolerated in the ring or in the classroom.
“They’re the bad guys but it’s a role that they play,” said Mysterio. “There is a ‘good vs. evil’ and that’s what we intend to demonstrate on TV.”
Villaraigosa said he was pleased to see Mysterio and other wrestling stars using their celebrity for a great cause.
“We know there are too many kids who are bullied in our schools, who are beaten up,” he said.
