"I think for our Superstars to be able to go to kids today and say, 'embrace those things that make you different, embrace those things that kids maybe pick on you for now, because those are the things that make you unique, they make you who you are and be proud of who you are,'" said WWE Chief Operating Officer and Superstar Triple H.
Through WWE and The Creative Coalition's anti-bullying campaign, children are encouraged to "be a STAR: Show Tolerance And Respect."
"If you are being bullied, there is a way out of it – go to an adult, go to a parent, go to a guardian, go to a teacher, go to somebody," Triple H said. "Don't let it just it just happen. Don't just put up with it. Don't think there's no way to stop it. You can stop it. And if you know somebody who is being bullied, help them stop it."

- HoyLosAngeles.com spoke to SmackDown ring announcer Lilian Garcia, who recalled her unconventional route to WWE in 1999.
Garcia, who had not watched wrestling since she was a child and was an aspiring musician in the New York City area, was contacted by her agent to audition for a television role with WWE. It was successful and she was soon offered a one-year contract to become the ring announcer of Raw. Garcia, however, would only commit to a two to three month trial run at first. After falling in love with WWE, she signed a one-year contract and "here I am, (thirteen) years later," Garcia says.
After ten consecutive years on the road, Garcia parted ways with WWE in September 2009. She explains, "I did not want to start a marriage with me traveling everywhere."
