WWE To Present ‘Warrior Award’ at Hall of Fame

WWE have announced that Connor ‘The Crusher’ Michalek will be the recipient of the first-ever Warrior Award at the 2015 Hall of Fame ceremony.

The company have said that the Warrior Award will be “given to someone who has exhibited unwavering strength and perseverance, and who lives life with the courage and compassion that embodies the indomitable spirit of WWE Hall of Famer, The Ultimate Warrior”. The award will be presented every year at the ceremony and will this year be presented to Steve Michalek, Connor’s father, by The Ultimate Warrior’s widow, Dana Warrior, and Daniel Bryan.

Connor passed away last year, aged 8, following a battle with cancer, and led to Stephanie McMahon and Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque launching Connor’s Cure, a fund dedicated to raising money to further research into pediatric cancer.

 

Commenting on the Warrior Award, Dana said;

“On behalf of my family, we are truly humbled and honored that WWE will present an award in my husband’s name each year at the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. Connor displayed all of the positive traits that Warrior stood for, and he is the perfect recipient for this inaugural award. I am sure that Warrior is smiling today, knowing that this award is being given to a true warrior.”

McMahon also commented;

“Connor Michalek had a profound impact on so many people. His spirit and love of life were so strong, you would have never known he was sick.  I can think of no better way to honor Connor, than by recognizing him with our highest honor, the first fan to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, as a Warrior.”

The Hall of Fame ceremony will take place on Saturday March 28.
