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."

Whether you watch professional wrestling or not, the image of a grown man with a full beard and glorified leather underwear running away from a burger is pretty entertaining in itself.

Real To Me of the Day: WWE pro-wrestler CM Punk delivers one of the most authentic "worked shoots" in pro-wrestling history on last night's RAW, taking on Vince McMahon, his "idiotic" daughter, his "doofus" son-in-law, and the "lazy" fans who "pour money into this company."

Oh, BTW: Money in the Bank -- July 17th on PPV.
