Cricket Wireless Throws Down a Big WWE Surprise for Popular Social Media Star

WWE has some of the most lively and loyal fans of any sport. Don’t believe it? Just ask 24-year-old Derek Baker—popular social media star and die-hard WWE superfan. Over the past couple of years, Derek’s 2.8 million followers have gotten to know him, including his love of all things WWE.

Derek, who has Down syndrome, is the star of the family’s TikTok account, @BakerBanter. Their goal is to bring awareness about Down syndrome with content meant to uplift, inform and entertain. It’s also focused on inspiring smiles—much like Cricket Wireless.
Cricket has been a WWE sponsor since 2015. We recently got wind of Derek’s love of all things WWE and decided to deliver a big surprise of our own. Next week, we are flying Derek and his family from their home in St Louis to Dallas to attend WrestleMania XXXVIII at AT&T Stadium, April 2-3. Check out Derek’s priceless reaction to the news here.
We’ll be sure to keep you posted on Derek’s entire WrestleMania adventure on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. No doubt, Derek and his family will be doing some social bantering about the experience as well.
