Last Sunday when retired WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan decided to cut his hair and trim his beard, he caused an uproar in the WWE fan world.
People just didn’t know what the true meaning behind his new hairstyle and beard change meant; did it mean he was coming back or that he was joining the authority… what was his reasoning?
Well, on Monday’s Raw, Bryan addressed the fans about, “the giant elephant in the room” and in his speech, Bryan told everyone what his reasonings were during Raw. He said, “I know, I didn’t want to shave my beard either, but the thing is that I wanted to cut my hair, and once I cut my hair, I looked really silly with t his giant beard. And this is just my one cheap plug. It’s that I cut my hair for an organization called, “Wigs for Kids”, and one of the nice things about them is that they make wigs for kids who have had cancer and they don’t charge the families at all for that, so if there is anything worthwhile that comes out of what I’m saying tonight, that’s it right there.”

The people at @wigs.for.kids are doing great work and cutting my hair never felt more meaningful. Find out how you can help at wigsforkids.org #grateful

That’s right, it was for the children who have lost their hair due to cancer. The wigs for most places come at a price if you just get donated hair.
In reality, paying for a wig isn’t easy when you’re also pay for medical bills and medications.
Here is a statement from the Wigs for Kids via their website:

For over 30 years, Wigs for Kids has been providing Hair Replacement Systems and support for children who have lost their hair due to chemotherapy, radiation therapy, Alopecia, Trichotillomania, burns and other medical issues at no cost to children or their families.

“Children shouldn’t have to worry about how they look, especially when they’re in the middle of a health crisis,” says Jeffrey Paul. “We want to give these kids the opportunity to feel good about themselves again.”

Everyone remembers how Bryan helped a little 6-year old boy named Connor.
Connor’s wrestling name was, Connor “the Crusher” and before he passed away, WWE let him live his wrestling dream.
