Daniel Bryan came home to a burglary; chased down and caught one of the suspects

UPDATE: Watch the press conference with police, Bryan, and Brie.

During the day yesterday, former WWE World Heavyweight Champion Daniel Bryan was attending the Comic Con Convention in San Diego to take part in a panel for Mattel alongside Paul Heyman, Hulk Hogan, and Sting. When he flew home, he arrived home with his wife, Brie Bella, to find two suspected burglars fleeing his home.

According to, Bryan then got out of his car, chased them down, and managed to apprehend one of the two. After a struggle, Bryan got the upper hand and held the alleged burglar until police arrived. They had reportedly already been called for the two suspects suspicious behavior in the neighborhood, but Bryan confronted them after he pulled up and saw them coming out of his house.

According to the police, the burglars didn't get away with any of Bryan's possessions because they were interrupted in the process of stealing them and left them in the home.

You'll remember, Bryan is just a couple months removed from neck surgery and at last word, he may also need surgery on his shoulder. So this was a man at far less than 100-percent running down two men who were in the process of burglarizing his home so he could make sure they were arrested.

Sadly, one of the two got away and is still free as of this writing.
