Yes, you read that right! The extremely popular and delicious (did we mention DELICIOUS) Gideon’s Bakehouse has been taking Disney Springs at Walt Disney World Resort by storm since it opened at the start of 2021. Well, excitingly enough, the WWE set out to recognize the bakery and owner Steve Lewis with a custom WWE NXT Championship Title for their partnership and contributions to the Orlando community. Check out the video below!
Gideon’s Bakehouse took to social media to share the news:
“This week I experienced one of the most surreal honors of my life. I was presented with a custom WWE NXT Championship Title recognizing Gideon’s Bakehouse for our partnership and contributions to the Orlando community from the absolute LEGEND Shawn Michaels and mindbogglingly talented @JohnnyGargano. As someone who grew up on wrestling (I still drink from a Wrestlemania One Roddy Piper glass!) I have been grinning ear to ear all week. There are no words that can represent my gratitude. Thank you, HBK, for your unbelievable kindness and offering so much of your time to talk with us. It takes a hard working team to put on those events, and I can easily say I’ve never met so many genuinely caring and passionate people in one building. What an experience!!! For the record, I had no idea this was going to happen. I would have cleaned myself up, demanded mood lighting, washed my hair, and let my locks out of that beanie for the night! In the end, I’m just glad I didn’t trip walking to the ring.”
“Central Florida is fortunate to have WWE’s NXT as part of our blossoming community. For my locals, you absolutely MUST go to an NXT 2.0 show! It’s filmed live every week and is a free event! Do you even live in Orlando if you haven’t been to an NXT event?!? For my out of area people, be sure to plan it as part of your Orlando visit! Learn more at wwe.com/shows/wwenxt.“
“Thanks for letting me indulge with this post. I don’t like to be seen, but this is just too cool for school. Bonus thanks to Tony Golden, because you’re Tony Golden. To the crowd for chanting “We Want Cookies!” and to all the wrestlers that have supported Gideon’s over all these years. It means so much. PS: I’ll welcome any challenge to the title. Anywhere. Anytime. I’ll have my Tiger Knee ready!“
Whether you try the Gideon’s Bakehouse cookie variety, one of their cake slices, or sip on their yummy cold brew, every bite and sip is exceptional and always gets the recognition it deserves. But, we love that this time Steve is recognized for his support in the Orlando community!
Here’s the WWE video of Shawn Michales and Johnny Gargano presenting Steve Lewis of Gideon’s Bakehouse with a custom NXT Title for their partnership and contributions to the Orlando community.
How incredible is that? Way to go Steve and the Gideon’s Bakehouse crew!
