WWE news: Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella's home burglarized

According to a July 25 report from Cageside Seats, Daniel Bryan and Brie Bella's Arizona home was burglarized on the evening of July 24. Fortunately, no one was injured during the attempted robbery. Bryan, 33, flew home from the Comic Con Convention in San Diego, only to find two burglars fleeing his place of residence.

Bryan hopped out of his car and immediately ran after the two men. He managed to catch one, but the other got away. Bryan held onto one suspect, until police arrived to complete the arrest. As of July 26, the second suspected burglar of Bryan's home was still free and not caught. Bella, a WWE Divas superstar who is married to Bryan, was home at the time of the burglary. Luckily, no one was hurt and the situation did not escalate into a violent altercation.

Bryan, the former WWE Heavyweight Champion, is currently rehabbing from neck surgery, and he's not expected to compete under the WWE banner for the next six months. Bryan has been sidelined with the injury since May, and he hasn't appeared at any WWE house shows since. His injury isn't expected to cut his career short, but its still a serious setback.

Here's the thing: Bryan's ability to chase down a suspect shows his athleticism is still there. Even when he's not at 100 percent, he can still push the pace and show off some serious cardio. WWE Universe is very lucky the burglary suspects were unarmed, or this situation could have gotten ugly. Did Bryan do the right thing by chasing down the suspect himself, instead of letting police handle it? Absolutely.

Bryan, one of the WWE's most popular superstars, wanted to set the tone that he can't be messed with. He was trying to protect his home and his beautiful wife, Brie Bella. The suspect Bryan confronted has been identified as 22-year-old Cesar Sosa. The two burglars broke Bryan's rear sliding glass door to get into the house to burglarize it. More details about the case will undoubtedly emerge as the days and weeks unfold.
