Last month, an 8-year-old boy with a passion for WWE fulfilled a dream by attending WrestleMania 30 only three weeks before he would pass away following a long battle with pediatric brain cancer.

Connor Michalek first met his favorite wrestler Daniel Bryan back in 2012 after his family posted a video on YouTube. The two met and instantly bonded. They kept in touch over the next two years.

Fast forward two years to 2014. Before WrestleMania 30 on April 6, Connor Michalek and Daniel Bryan shared a special moment with all of the WWE stars. Connor interacted with AJ Lee, Stephanie McMahon and took out Triple H with a single punch.

Connor’s father said the trip made him forget, if only for a short time, that Connor was sick. ┬áHe was so glad to have his son back.

    It’s a shame professional wrestlers get knocked for no particular reason because people don’t like the business. They do so much children.

    Connor is probably up in Heaven right now leading a “YES!” chant with all the angels.

    I am sorry for your loss. God gave you time with him and made memories of a lifetime come true for him. Be strong.

    I know the feeling for giveing you child that last wish..on Apirl 28 2011 I last my baby girl to liver cancer and she was only 15. Conner passed a way around her 3 year anniversary. I can only say to Conners dad he is with you always. God only takes the Good Ones. Stephanie McMahon said is best that Conner was a old soul… Michayla was the same way. God love them and they are missed. My thought and prays to Conners family. I real hope Conners dad see this..I won’t him to know that he is not a lone. God bless every one.
