BROOKLYN -- Typically, you would find WWE Superstar Roman Reigns in the ring, bringing agony to his opponents.

But it was a much different scenario Thursday when Reigns, along with fellow WWE superstars "answered the call," visiting firehouses and precincts around the Big Apple to meet with the families of New York City’s Bravest and Finest killed in the line of duty.

“We got to meet family members of fallen heroes who have done amazing things in this community, in these neighborhoods,” Reigns told PIX11 News. “To be part of that, I feel overwhelmed and so grateful.”

WWE Diva Summer Rae agreed.

“We got thanked the whole day for coming out, but really, we should be thanking those families that sacrifice their mothers, their fathers, their sisters and brothers,” Rae said. “It was great to just step into their office and experience what they go through everyday.”

The ‘Answer The Call’ tour is just one of the many things keeping the WWE Superstars busy this week. It’s all warming them up for Sunday’s much-anticipated SummerSlam show at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

It’s where Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams took a moment to recognize the Superstars’ takeover of the borough Thursday.

Adams was accompanied by the Superstars and a lone Diva as the WWE flag was raised on the venue’s historic flagpole situated at Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues.
