The pro wrestling stars included Hulk Hogan and Titus O'Neil, who both call Tampa Bay home. As well as, W.W.E. Hall of Famer Bayley and Dasha Fuentes.

Hogan, whose real name is Terry Bollea, said his father enrolled him in a Tampa Boys & Girls Club as a kid.

"It changed my life," said Hogan. "It really put me in the right track, the right group of people, the right leadership."

W.W.E. and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America have partnered to reach more than a half-a-million kids globally through their Be a STAR (Show Tolerance And Respect) bullying prevention program.

"You should not be a bully to other people because you don’t know what they’re going through," said 8-year-old Marco Demayo. "So you should try to be nice to everyone."
