Michael Pena's wish came true today when he got to play Raw GM for the day.

With the help of Mick Foley, Michael fielded requests for everything from matches to raises. In the end, Michael announced that the main event at Backlash would be John Cena, Edge, Randy Orton and Shawn Michaels in a Four Way Match for the WWE Championship.

Michael's visit was arranged through WWE's partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, where he and his family met all the Superstars at Raw. His mother, younger brother Kyle, age six, older brother Charlie, age 13 and his 15-year-old sister Jennifer joined him.

Michael has been busy all day, but has enjoyed every minute of it.

"It's bigger than I thought," said Michael. "Today I've gotten to meet almost all the Superstars. It was very cool hanging out with Mick Foley."

Before going out to make his big announcement in front of a sold-out Bridgeport, Conn., crowd, Michael said he was both excited and nervous. Afterward, he took some time out of his busy night to speak with WWE.com.

"It was very fun and at the same time scary, because you never know what the reaction of the crowd is going to be," said Michael, who received a great reaction from the audience. "It was exciting."
