The WWE’s Video Tribute to Connor Michalek, Daniel Bryan’s Biggest Fan

I’m aware that this is only my second post on Popgoesmanila and it’s also about a wrestling-related death, but please forgive me, as this is too… moving, I think the right word is, not to share.

Connor Michalek, a bright little boy who had been stricken with cancer, passed away last month shortly after WrestleMania XXX, where he was able to witness his hero Daniel Bryan overcome the odds and beat Triple H, Batista, and former champion Randy Orton to finally become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. The WWE released this video honoring Connor, and it is one of the heaviest and also happiest things you will watch, whether you’re a wrestling fan or not.

Rest in peace, Connor. You lived the dream, as you very well deserved to.
