As much as it is often criticised by its fans as well as those who are not in the WWE Universe, its charity commitments is certainly something WWE has got right.

Week in, week out a whole host of WWE Superstars attend charity events, visit patients in hospital and, overall, represent the importance of charity to the company they work for.

This week's edition of Monday Night Raw proved no exception to showing the devotion WWE has to its charity work.

Connor's Cure 

As the month of September is Paediatric Cancer Awareness month, WWE had two clear links to Connor's Cure present throughout the show.

Connor's Cure is a charity which was set up by Triple H and Stephanie McMahon in June of last year in the memory of Connor Michalek.

Connor was a hugely devoted WWE fan and tragically passed away at just eight-years-old following a rare tumour, with WWE starting up the charity in order to honour him.

The links WWE presented to its Universe on Monday Night Raw this week regarding the charity were having a gold-coloured ring rope as well as portraying the Connor's Cure logo on the ramp leading towards the ring.

Emotional ending 

WWE also continued to demonstrate how its charity work is a top priority after this week's Monday Night Raw recording ended.

As Joe.ie has reported, both John Cena and Sting were involved in a hugely touching segment in which a seven-year-old girl was congratulated by Cena for being given the all-clear from cancer.

As can be seen here, everyone in attendance was touched by this emotional announcement as a Daniel Bryan-esque 'yes!' chant erupted around the arena in celebration for the young girl.

In a world where WWE is often criticised for its decisions, to see two Superstars as big as John Cena and Sting break out of character for such an important moment was greatly memorable.

John Cena was credited last month with reaching the milestone of granting 500 wishes for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, which in itself says a huge amount for not just WWE as a company, but for Cena as its leading man.

To gain an idea of just how much WWE's charity work means to the company, a read through of their WWE Community page provides a clear indication.

As often as WWE praises its fans and claims the company would be nothing without them, it is humbling to know just how much the business, as well as its Superstars, continue to give back to those who are in need.
