MUNFORD, TN (WMC) - A Mid-South teen enlisted some big-time muscle to make her prom-posal extra special.

Emily Blank reached out to WWE's John Cena last month, hoping for a tag team partner to ask her friend Warren, who has special needs, to prom.

Emily is a student helper in the special needs class at Munford High School and has formed a unique friendship with Warren.

Warren is a huge fan of wrestling, especially John Cena, and loves to do Cena's signature hand move. He even wrestles on the school team.

Just in time for prom, Cena came through with the assist.

Munford High School gathered in anticipation Thursday morning for the big announcement intended for the unsuspecting Warren.

"I've heard there's a very special person who's possibly thinking of asking you a very important question," Cena said. "So Warren, the question is: Will you "see" Emily at prom? I hope so."

Of course, Warren said yes!

After saying yes, Warren went on stage and sealed the deal with a kiss on the cheek! Now, all that's left for these two is planning the big day.

"We going to dance?" Emily asked.

"Really yes!" Warren said.

"We're going to dance the night away, we're going to eat a whole bunch of food," Emily said.

Seeing Warren's smile and his excitement was what this big day was all about.  [endif]
