A one-time wrestling champion, fresh from a visit to San Diegos Comic-Con, returned home to find his front door open and burglars inside.
Former WWE World Heavy-Weight Champion Bryan Danielson had just gotten back to his Phoenix home after his Comic-Con appearance when he and his wife Brie saw their front door open and then close.
Danielson, who wrestles under the name "Daniel Bryan", just reacted, he told NBC affiliate KPNX. That's how most people do, and you'll react how you were programmed to react or how your own individual personality is to react. My individual personality was to go after him," Danielson said.
He acted on instinct and chased down the suspect.
"I put him in a rear naked choke but not to, I didn't want to hurt him, I just wanted to make sure that he was subdued," he said. The wrestling move used many times in the ring, was used to hold this criminal until police arrived.
Having just moved in ten days before, the Danielsons didnt have much in the home. However there was one sentimental gift.
My dad had just recently passed away and he got me this bracelet that said 'To the man that you've become and the son you'll always be,' Danielson said.
Heel pick! Body slam!
Good for the wrestler, that he was still in character, also good that the burglar either didn’t have or didn’t use a gun during that chase. I’ll bet the crooks could not believe how quickly the tables had turned.
My mother worked in an urban high school (many, many years ago) and there were 1840 black students and 50 Samoan students.
There were oodles of drugs.
One day a mob of black kids were out to get a Samoan kid. Why? Because a black kid had SHOT the Samoan. It was over drugs, of course.
The Samoan didn't drop to the ground with the bullet in him...he JUST GOT MAD and choked the living daylights of the the gun-toting black kid.
Then all heck broke loose and you can guess who "won."
Stupid black kid for NOT listening to his friends about "Leave the Samoans alone. They are usually really easy going but DON'T piss them off."
Moral of the story: DON'T piss of Samoans. The girls are ESPECIALLY DANGEROUS.
One time one of the girls got pissed off for some reason and it took FIVE police officers to subdue her. She ended up joining the army and was a good soldier.
:o) TRUE STORY. You KNOW I couldn't make up something like that.
I wonder if he took the Chihuahua Choo-Choo or swam.
Those are some big strong people. Almost the same as Hawaiian I would say, but less prone to fatness while young, at least the males are. I would have thought the Samoans combined with Guam would be the 51st state by now.
So, should we stay away from those Girl scout cookies?
A guy I work with was a great HS wrestler. He chased a thief down and snapped the kids collar bone. BTW he is 45 and overweight, but the training still worked!
Hope the cops got there, slapped the floor three times, and then cuffed the perp!
Another of Obama's dreamers, soon to be enrolled in a middle-school near you?
Must be an older mug shot. I like to think that the one from this incident would show him with a slightly blue tint, and still gasping for breath.
