Note a defensive gun use, but still a defensive encounter.

Apparently WWE wrestler Daniel Bryan (real name Bryan Lloyd Danielson) caught two intruders in his home after he and his wife returned from the airport.

Danielson gave chase as the pair fled out a backdoor, and managed to catch one of the men, identified as Cesar Sosa. The two got into a an altercation which was quickly ended when Danielson put the man into a rear naked choke hold.

According to Fox News,

The former champ said he didn’t have to apply the “Yes! lock” — his signature move– to get Sosa to surrender, but he did put him in a rear naked choke hold.

“Unfortunately, he wasn’t in very good shape,” Danielson said. “So, it didn’t take much.”

…”I got really angry at first,” Danielson said. “They’re actually lucky that I got them instead of Brie, because she probably would have been a little more violent.”

Danielson’s wife, Brianna Danielson, is also a former WWE wrestler. Danielson is currently inactive in wrestling due to injury
