| Last updated
WWE icon Triple H broke down in tears following WrestleMania, revealing that a young performer had lost her mum the morning of the event.
During night two of WrestleMania, Raw Women’s Champion, Bianca Belair had an incredibly special entrance that involved some seriously talented young dancers from troupe Divas of Compton.
One of the performers was a contortionist dancer who appeared next to Belair and wowed audiences with her ability.
It was a special moment that summed up everything that the champion was about as a performer - being a role model for young girls.
However, WWE’s chief content officer revealed that the young performer had suffered a tragic loss the day of WrestleMania night two.
He said: “Before I open this up to questions I want to mention one other thing...
"I wanted to offer [our] condolences and thoughts and prayers.
“There's a little girl in that troupe today [who] as they got here that informed us that her mum passed away this morning.
"It's the little girl that was the contortionist that Bianca danced with.
"For her to come and do that because that's her passion in life and because she didn't want to let this opportunity pass by. For her to never miss a beat, to see her dance partners swarm around her.
"To see everybody come together for her, to see everybody come to me to tell me about it and then for us to get to do what we do, which is give her that opportunity and moment with Bianca, and create a moment for her on the worst day of her life that she will never forget.
"It's why we do what we do, on so many levels.
"So I just want to say how cool that was from Bianca and just offer [her] our condolences and hope tomorrow is a better day."

What an incredibly harrowing story and show of bravery from the young girl to go out and steal the show despite the circumstances.
Belair spoke about the group and the emotion she felt seeing them perform.
She said: "First off, shout-out to the Divas of Compton. They were amazing, just getting to meet them and during rehearsals when I first got to meet them, I was tearing up and crying.
"I was like, 'I don’t know if I can watch this before my match, because I’m just gonna be bawling, crying.'
"But to be able to bring them out, and I wanted to have little ESTs, my favourite thing is to come out and see these little ESTs that they see themselves in me.
"And to be able to inspire them, they’re going to do amazing things."
Bianca went on to retain her title against Asuka in a stellar match.
