This fight night was put on to raise money for Charity Vision, which Mitt Romney's son is president of. That explains why Romney was there to show his support but it doesn't entirely offer an explanation to why he dressed up as Nacho Libre and went into the ring.

The main event featured Oscar De La Hoya and Mario Lopez but they were interrupted by two masked luchadores. Those luchadores were then interrupted by Nacho Libre, who turned out to actually be Mitt Romney in disguise? 

Last time this event took place, Mitt Romney entered the ring in a boxing match with Evander Holyfield so this time he had to step it up a notch.

Wrestling may not be real, but Shark Boy is. The intreped ocean dweller was essential in the capture of a peeping tom in his own neighborhood. He didn't pull any of his signature moves on the criminal, but he did keep an eye on him until the police arrived to ensure his capture.

Here's a nice, heart-warming moment to help restore your faith in humanity.

At IWA Midsouth's "Big Ass Christmas Bash" last week in Indiana, wrestler Ace Perry had a surprise for his number one fan Amanda.

The high school junior who has autism, has been to every one of his matches and has even reached out to him on Facebook.

So when he asked her if she would go to prom with him, she was – of course – ecstatic.

Connor Michelek 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.

Sadly, Connor died on April 25 following a long battle with pediatric brain cancer.

"Connor was special for a million reasons," Daniel Bryan said. "His smile. He was so quick witted. He was nice to everybody but sometimes brutally honest. You couldn't help but talk to him and instantly fall in love with him."
