WWE's Daniel Bryan meets 7-year-old cancer survivor, taps out to him

One of the things that he tend to forget about our favorite athletes is that they are human beings just like us and this story about professional wrestler Daniel Bryan is something that will make your heart grow two sizes larger.

A 7-year-old boy from Pennsylvania by the name of Connor Michalek posted a YouTube video of himself asking to meet Bryan. Connor had been diagnosed with cancer of the brain/spine and had gone through several surgeries and chemotherapy since he was only three.

Word was passed onto Bryan about this special boy via a social media campaign and he arranged to meet with him after a WWE event at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh last Tuesday.

The below meeting was videotaped by a local Pittsburgh CBS affiliate and be ready to have some tissues handy because you might shed a tear or two during the clip as the 7-year-old got a chance to put his hero in a "no lock" hold:
