GLENSHAW, Penn. – A boy’s dying wish is fulfilled just three weeks before he would pass away after a long battle with pediatric brain cancer.

WGHP reported Connor Michalek was a special little boy with a passion for WWE wrestling.

He got to meet his favorite wrestler, Daniel Bryan, back in 2012.

WPXI reported the meeting left everyone in tears, tears of joy.

Daniel: “Where’s the ‘Stone Crusher’ (a nickname Connor gave himself)?”

“That’s me,” Connor said in a little voice with a big smile.

Tears filled the eyes of everyone in the room, especially Connor’s parents, Steve Michalek and Brittany Caligiuri, WITI reported.

WGHP said the pair kept in touch over the next few years.

Conner was at WrestleMania 30 recently when his hero, Daniel Bryan, won his match.
