Daniel Bryan places would be burglar in chokehold

Daniel Bryan may be out of action while he recovers from surgery but that has not stopped the former WWE World Heavyweight Champion from defending his home.

Bryan and his wife Brie were returning to their Phoenix home when they noticed a door start to open on the house. That is when Bryan took matters into his own hands.

“I saw the guys running out the back. I chased them. I caught one of them. I kept him until police got there,” Danielson said.

Bryan kept 22-year-old Cesar Sosa down with a rear naked choke hold until police arrived. A second suspect got away. According to FOX News Sosa was arrested and faces a burglary charge.

“They’re actually lucky that I got them instead of Brie (wife), because she probably would have been a little more violent.”
