Daniel Bryan may be on the sidelines, but that didn’t prevent him from being a WWE superstar – superhero? -- this week.
The former WWE champion reportedly prevented a burglary Monday night in Phoenix.
Bryan, who is recuperating from a neck surgery, was pulling into a carport when he saw the door to his house was open.
Phoenix police reported that two men ran out of the house and Bryan, real name Brian Danielson, ran down one of them, 22-year-old Cesar Sosa.
Sosa and Danielson got into a scrap – not the best move if you were the alleged burglar – and the WWE star detained him until police arrived.
Sosa was booked into Maricopa County Jail and charged with burglary.
