WWE Donates Custom Belt in Memory of "Connor the Crusher"

Connor's brother, Jackson, shows off the custom WWE belt in memory of his brother.

Wyland fifth graders were presented with a custom-made WWE bet in memory of classmate Connor Michalek, who died April 25, 2014 following a courageous battle with medulloblastoma. Connor was a huge WWE fan and was able to meet his wrestling favorite, Daniel Bryant. The WWE bestowed Connor with the honorary name "The Crusher," and posthumously inducted him into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2015. The custom belt was accompanied with a personal note from WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon that said, "I truly believe Connor was an angel on earth and his impact on so many of us only continues to grow." McMahon, along with WWE wrestler Triple H, founded Connor's Cure in 2014 in Connor's memory, a non-profit charitable organization for pediatric cancer research.  Connor would have been in fifth grade this year. The belt presentation is one of several ways his classmates are remembering and honoring him before they graduate to the Middle School.
