Wrestling-mad Scots youngster receives backing from WWE’s Triple H and Drew McIntyre for charity fundraiser

Wrestling legend Triple H has told a Scots schoolboy to “dream big” as he lent some heavyweight backing to the youngster’s charity campaign.

Caelan McFaulds, from Airdrie, was delighted to see his fundraising book shared on social media by the 14-time world champion, who also serves as a WWE executive, as well as Scots star and current champion Drew McIntyre.

Caelan with his ‘ring’

The seven-year-old is raising money for the NHS during the coronavirus crisis by selling digital versions of his story, titled ‘The Main Event of WrestleMania’.

He’s now raised almost three times his £500 target, a thank you from Caelan to nurses at Monklands Hospital for their help following a football injury.

Wrestling-mad Caelan had written his illustrated tale of ascending to grappling stardom after becoming tired of school work.

His parents, Zara, 32, and Stevie, 33, encouraged their son – whose ring name is Captain Chaos – to channel his creativity into the book.

Paul Levesque, a.k.a. Triple H, tweeted: “Last week I learned about a young man who wrote a story about his dream of being in the main event of #WrestleMania and since then, Caelan has raised over £1200 for the NHS! ‬

“‪Amazing things can happen when you dream big. Thanks for dreaming of others!‬

McIntyre tweeted: “Stick in school, work hard and one day you’ll turn fiction into non-fiction pal.”

Proud dad Stevie admits he was a little jealous but said it was a “father’s dream” to see his son so happy.

He said: “A WWE hero of mine, Triple H, as well as the current WWE Champion – being Scottish himself – both sending videos, autographs and taking time out of their schedule to tweet a message of support is something Caelan will remember forever in these horrible times we find ourselves in at the minute.

“It’s something really positive he can remember it by.

“When he initially thought up the idea, we couldn’t have dreamed of this reaction. If anything, I was overcome with jealousy!

“Captain Chaos deserves it though, he has a heart of gold and we are incredibly proud of his efforts.”

The superstar himself said: “I can’t believe I am best mates with Triple H and Drew!

“They are my heroes, I have their figures, and to think they know who I am is crazy!

“I am going to keep training so hard and one day, Drew will lose the WWE title to me!”
