Yes! Yes! Good Guy Daniel Bryan Gets Tapped Out By a Kid with Cancer

By / 12.19.12

Reason number infinity why Daniel Bryan is the man. Following Monday night's taping of WWE Raw in Pittsburgh, WWE tag team champion Daniel Bryan took some time to meet with 7-year-old superfan Connor Michalek, a.k.a. “Stone Crusher.” Michalek was diagnosed with cancer of the brain and spine at the age of  3-years-old. Since then he’s had multiple surgeries and rounds of chemotherapy. According to KDKA, doctors gave Connor a less than one percent chance of survival. His family started a Facebook campaign to meet Connor's favorite wrestler.

Together with the greatest beard in the WWE history, Connor did the “No! No!” chant. Adorably, Michalek asked if Kane was going to beat up Santa Claus. And of course, Bryan let Connor tap him out. “It kinda brings a tear to my eye to know somebody like Connor wants to meet somebody like me, so that’s kinda cool,” Bryan told KDKA. No, it's VERY cool.

FTK man, FTK.
