We noted earlier today that Connor “Stone Crusher” Michalek, the little boy who was terminally ill from cancer, has sadly passed away. He was just eight years old. The “Stone Crusher” nickname was something Connor and Daniel made up together. Conner had one wish and that was to meet his favorite wrestler, Daniel Bryan. You can check out a video of his visit with Daniel Bryan in 2012 below. This will damn near bring a tear to your eyes.
Connor was able to see Bryan front and center at WrestleMania 30 as well. WWE announcer Justin Roberts also posted a photo in remembrance of Connor:
As noted earlier, Brie Bella posted the following on her Instagram account on the unfortunate passing of Daniel Bryan’s father, Donald Orrin “Buddy” Danielson, and Connor Michalek.
“I want to thank everyone for all their love and support through this difficult time. You have no idea how much it means to us. Heaven gained two beautiful angels this week, Buddy and Connor. They will forever touch our hearts. It’s hard to find a rainbow in the midst of a storm but when you do you realize it’s all going to be ok. We found that rainbow today. It’s not goodbye, but til we meet again. Love to you all and thank you again. #BuddyDanielson #ConnorMichalek #TilWeMeetAgain #thankyou”
On behalf of everyone here on the website, we send our thoughts and prayers go out to Connor Michalek’s family and friends. R.I.P little man. The same goes for Daniel Bryan.
