Smith also recalled saving a kid and hiding in a closet with more than 20 people, all fearing for their lives.

“So right before I run in there, there’s like a little kid in front of me, so I just grab him, yank him,” Smith said. “So you’re hopping in here with me buddy. I don’t know how many people there were in the closet, maybe 20. Plus one of my teammates, my long snapper James Winchester is very instrumental in helping keep people calm. We end up getting the green light to be able to get out there we end up walking to the buses.”

“This little boy was with his father, he was just a little hysterical. He’s just panicked. Ya know he’s scared. He doesn’t know what’s going on,” said Smith. “I had the WWE belt on me the entire parade and I was thinking man, what can I do to help him out? So I just handed him the belt and said ‘hey buddy you’re the champion. No one’s gonna hurt you.”

So I’m like, ‘here you go buddy this is yours. Again no one’s gonna hurt you when you’re with us. We’re gonna keep you protected, you’re gonna be a-okay, you’re gonna be alright.”
