The Brooklyn Cyclones and WWE partnered for SummerSlam Night at MCU Park on Thursday to fundraise for Connor's Cure, a pediatric cancer fund in honor of a special WWE fan.

WWE superstars Mark Henry, Ember Moon and all 7 feet of the Big Show greeted fans and players to raise money for the charity.

Two patients got to throw out the first pitch to their favorite superstars.

The WWE superstars have events planned over the next few days leading up to four straight nights of shows at Barclays Center, including the big SummerSlam pay-per-view event on Sunday.
