Former WWE Star Stops Armed Robbery

(WWE CEO Vince McMahon)

TMZ is reporting that former WWE superstar Shad Gaspard took down an armed robber Saturday night at a Florida convenience store.

Police responded to a call at around midnight for an armed robbery at a store. Police said the suspect was drunk and walked up to Shad and said,”Hey man, buy me a beer.”. Shad had then responded that “there is a better way to ask than that” and police have said that was when the suspect whipped out his firearm.

The store employee working at the time says Shad quickly shoved the suspect against the cooler door, grabbed the guy’s gun and it fell to the ground. Shad says to TMZ he was trying to disarm the gun so it can’t be used, then saw the clip on the gun was just for a BB gun.

Shad then took the person to the ground, holding him til police arrived and arrested the suspect on robbery with a weapon.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
