WWE Pays Tribute to Connor "Stone Crusher" Michalek

Posted By on Tue, May 6, 2014 at 3:00 PM

Everyone has their form of escapism, and Connor "Stone Crusher" Michalek's was good old fashion wrestling. Connor was a seven-year-old boy that was battling cancer and was granted the ultimate WWE fan experience at Wrestlemania XXX in April. Doctors told Steve, Connor's father, that his son didn't have long to live.

The WWE caught wind of the news, they invited the wrestling fanatics to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA., for a special pre-show experience. Connor was invited back stage so he can meet all his heroes, and had the best seats in the house.

Sadly, Connor passed away shortly after the event. The WWE made this special video for Connor to commemorate his passion and fighting spirit. Keep that box of tissues close because it's a tearjerker.
