WWE's Chief Brand Officer had previously revealed 62 children suffering from brain conditions were participating in clinical trials thanks to donations.
Proceeds raised from Connor's Cure bracelets go a considerable way to make up these funds, helping save other children's lives.
Connor, 8, died in April 2014 captured the hearts of WWE superstars and audiences with his bravery and humour and celebrated Daniel Bryan's Wrestlemania 30 title victory with the new champ directly after his win.
He was posthumously inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame earlier this year, receiving the inaugural Warrior Award.
