My mom sent me this video clip from the small town of Techiman in Ghana. Last Sunday, my uncle had a gathering at his house where the townspeople could watch Wrestlemania. • In seeing this, I am overcome with pride and joy. I’m still blown away by how many lives we touched. This video is a reminder of why we do what we do: to lift spirits and inspire others. I am so grateful to be in a position to do so. • Last time I was in Ghana was in 1994. I think it might be time to go back and visit… • #wrestlemania #wwe #ghana #sankofa #yearofthereturn #inspire
