Video tribute to Connor “Stone Crusher” Michalek
This is so beautiful and tragic. WWE are a wonderful company who do so much, and hearing Connor’s father say that he’s convinced WWE’s work with his son extended his life is magically bittersweet.
I knew this was going to be a tough watch, and as soon as Stephanie started tearing up, so did I, but it’s ultimately incredibly heart-warming.
I don’t think that a lot of people truly understand just how important the WWE is to foundations like Make-A-Wish, the Special Olympics, and so on. How many other companies do you know that not only give their time and money to the people involved in these foundations, but also regularly feature them in their product?
This is a beautiful video for many reasons. Knowing that the company helped this child and his father is important, but I think what’s even more important is hearing how Connor changed the lives of so many others himself.
Excuse me, I’ll be sobbing all day now.
