WWE joins Journey for 9/11
On the afternoon of SummerSlam, various WWE Superstars were on hand at Continental Airlines Arena for a special fundraiser with former New York Giants defensive end George Martin for his Journey for 9/11. For a donation of $10, fans took photos with the Superstars and met George Martin and fellow Giant Joe Morris, with all money raised being donated to the Journey for 9/11. WWE is one of the sponsors of the Journey for 9/11, and the autograph session raised more than $3,600 for the charity.
