This 8-year-old boy, Connor "The Crusher" Michalek, became close friends with all those in the WWE community. His legacy and love for wrestling will live on forever. This year, he will be the first-ever recipient of "The Warrior Award" and first fan ever inducted.
He was the darling of fans and WWE community. This special award he received was named after the Ultimate Warrior, a legendary wrestler who passed away in 2014 just days after his own induction into the Hall of Fame. Stephanie McMahon explains, "Ultimate Warrior is an icon in our business, [... his] beliefs were to always believe in yourself and that's why Connor Michalek is absolutely the correct person to receive this award." When you see how this little guy acts around the stars, you will see why he was the perfect selection for this award.
