WWE and Cricket Wireless teamed up to present the five children of Austin and Savanna Andrews with toys at the Military Assistance Mission in Phoenix, the television station reported. Flair, who came to pass out the toys, said that Savannah Andrews helped set it up.

"I'm looking forward to seeing his entire family have a special moment," Flair told KNXV.

"I'm looking forward to seeing his entire family have a special moment," Flair told KNXV.

The moment was indeed special, as the family walked into a room filled with toys.

“A Tendo (Nintendo) Switch?” one child said.

Absolutely. And baseball bats, balls and gloves.

Flair was in Arizona to compete in her first Royal Rumble, which will be held Sunday at Chase Field in Phoenix. The daughter of former pro wrestling superstar Ric Flair is favored to be one of the last four wrestlers standing in the women’s battle royale in one of the WWE’s signature events, along with Becky Lynch, Nia Jax and Ember Moon.

On Friday, however, the kids were what mattered. Savanna Andrews called the day “exciting.”

"(It was) kind of just like a relief, you know, because there's a lot of things we can't provide a lot of. We have a big family, we are fostering, so, it's difficult," she told KNXV. "It was like, 'Yay, to see our kids excited."
