A hapless burglar got more than he bargained for when he broke into the home of a WWE wrestler.

Cesar Sosa, 22, bit off more than he could chew when he raided the Phoenix, Arizona home of former heavyweight champion Daniel Bryan.

The 33-year-old was returning home with his wife late on Thursday when he saw two suspects running out of a rear door.

The WWE superstar gave chase and was able to catch Sosa, putting him in a rear naked chokehold until the police arrived.
