Connor met Daniel Bryan a couple of years back through the Make-a Wish Foundation and his feisty, fighting spirit ensured that the two hit it off.

Sadly, he died on April 25, at the age of eight, but not before inspiring everyone in the WWE and beyond. Thanks to the WWE for giving him and his father some very cherished memories.
