Although the WWE Universe has existed for 64 years now, it seems that most of the prominent and unforgettable moments in WWE history have happened starting from the 1980's to today. The past 30 years have been more flashy and fast-paced, with seemingly nonstop entertainment. We've experienced moments of feeling overjoyed, and moments of being overcome by devastating loss and heartbreak. Although storylines have been enhanced in today's programs, it always seems that the real life joys and struggles end up forcing the dramatic story lines to take a back seat in comparison to the genuine emotion we feel when beloved (or hated) wrestlers face real life experiences.
Fortunately for us, today's technology allows us to feel as if we are front and center in the action, and document some of the most unforgettable moments that the WWE never fails to supply us with. Here is a list of 15 of the most unforgettable photos documenting some of the most emotional WWE moments ever.
15 Macho Man & Miss Elizabeth Reunite
14 Paige Wins Diva's Title
13 Ultimate Warrior Shakes The Ropes One Last Time
On April 7, 2014, Ultimate Warrior entered the ring on Raw to address the fans regarding his induction into the WWE Hall of Fame. Obviously, the reason this photo and this moment are so emotional is due to the fact that the wrestling icon passed away just one day later. It seems haunting now to go back and watch this clip, as his appearance, coupled with his ominous speech about "every man's heart one day beats its final beat, his lungs breathe their final breath..." leaves many people wondering if he had any inclination that his final days were upon him.

Connor ‘The Crusher’ Michalek was a 7-year-old boy battling cancer, and a die hard fan of WWE wrestling. The WWE brought the boy into their universe to honor his wishes to meet the superstars that he looked up to. Although there has been controversy surrounding the company's motives behind their philanthropy in this case, the fact of the matter is that Connor's life was made by meeting and interacting with his idols, namely Daniel Bryan. Connor even became the first child ever inducted into the Hall of Fame after being the first person to ever be given the Warrior Award. This photo of Connor and his all time favorite wrestler is enough to tug at just about anyone's heart strings. Bryan embraced Connor and befriended him, and made the boy's dreams come true.
