Mor­gan Boyle will never for­get the first time he went to a WWE show.

Months af­ter he lost all his pro wrestling me­men­tos in a fire at his Merced home, Boyle met his fa­vorite WWE wrestler, RAW women’s cham­pion Becky Lynch, back­stage and took a photo with the su­per­star at “WWE Live” at the Save Mart Cen­ter on June 9.

Pro wrestler A.J. Kirsch ar­ranged the meet­ing af­ter hear­ing about Boyle’s loss.

“I think I was in shock most of the time,” Boyle wrote on Face­book. “Ringside seats and a per­sonal meet with The Man her­self. She was soooooo nice and gra­cious to me and my par­ents.”

A fire ripped through the Boyles’ home in Jan­uary, send­ing five family mem­bers to the hospi­tal, fire of­fi­cials said.

Boyle, who has cere­bral palsy, uses a wheel­chair. His fa­ther, Den­nis, told the Merced Sun-Star he ran into his son’s room and car­ried him out as the fire raged.

Den­nis Boyle mes­saged Kirsch on Face­book and asked if he could help bring some cheer.

Kirsch obliged and his friends at Best of the West wrestling signed au­to­graphs and gave him plenty of wrestling mem­o­ra­bilia to pass along at a re­cent Merced event.

But Kirsch went a step fur­ther and used his wrestling con­nec­tions to reach Lynch, who quickly re­sponded and said she would help.

“To be able to be the cat­a­lyst to help make that hap­pen makes me feel re­ally good about pro­fes­sional wrestling, what it means to peo­ple,” Kirsch said. “Mor­gan was ab­so­lutely giddy and I al­most broke down and cried when he busted out that laugh. Pretty spe­cial mo­ment.”
