PHOENIX (AP) -- Police say a former WWE champion known as Daniel Bryan chased down a suspect burglar this week after the professional wrestler and his wife drove into their carport.

According to police, the grappler, whose real name is Bryan Danielson, saw a door to his Phoenix house start to open. Authorities say two men then ran out and Danielson gave chase.

Police say the wrestler caught one of the suspected burglars, 22-year-old Cesar Sosa, while a second suspect got away.

Investigators say Sosa and Danielson got into a struggle but the former champ subdued him until police arrived.

Sosa was arrested and faces a burglary charge.

It was not known if Sosa had an attorney.

Danielson, known for his "Yes!" chants, currently is recovering from a previous injury.
