WWE star Daniel Bryan helped a 7-year-old cancer patient live out a dream this week.
Connor, who was diagnosed with cancer of the brain and spine at age 3, is a huge WWE fan. Bryan is his favorite wrestler, and Connor has had his heart set on meeting him.
In October, Connor even filmed a YouTube video in which he discussed his strong desire to meet Bryan and pin him in Bryan's signature "no lock" hold. The video has garnered nearly 30,000 views, and the resulting publicity eventually made its way to Bryan.
So on Tuesday, just about two months after the video was posted, Bryan visited Connor. And in classic WWE fashion, what Connor was looking forward to most was pinning his hero to the ground.
The time they spent together may have been as meaningful for Bryan as it was for Connor.
“It kinda brings a tear to my eye to know somebody like Connor wants to meet somebody like me," Bryan said. "So that's kinda cool."
