Huffington Post Former WWE star Shawn Daivari told TMZ that he performed an expert wrestling move and saved the day when a passenger went berserk on an airport-bound train out of Minneapolis on Thursday.The perp reportedly threatened to kill everyone on the train and was yelling racial slurs, but Daivari wasn’t having that. He says he used a rear naked choke hold — classic move — to subdue the would-be killer. He told the site it was all he could think to do at the time. He and other passengers had pressed an emergency button to call for help, but nobody came. “I wasn’t going to wait any longer to see if a cop showed up,” Daivari said. Witnesses said Daivari squeezed the violent passenger’s neck so hard he peed his pants. Then the wrestler threw the man out at the next stop.
Well done, Daivari! Not only did you save the day by subduing this lunatic, who was threatening the lives of fellow travelers, but you literally choked the piss out of the guy! That’s some superhero shit Daivari, and since any press is good press, maybe the WWE will consider bringing you back for another run. Either that, or you may be able to get a job at the Counter Terrorist Unit, saving American lives, Jack Bauer style.
Personally I would have gone with the “Rock Bottom” followed by “People’s Elbow” combination on this clown, but an MMA style rear naked choke seems to have worked well, I just hope Daivari stayed dry when the guy pissed. Valiant effort.
