That’s a lot more serious. Wrestlers are larger than life characters but they are very real life people when the camera is turned off. You are going to hear about wrestlers doing run of the mill things, which is not exactly something that draws the most interest. Every now and then though, you hear about something that is a lot more serious, which is the case in another situation.
According to the Detroit News, former WWE developmental wrestler Kyle Garrett Rasmussen (known as Conrad Tanner in FCW) was arrested on charges of attempting to strangle a man last month. Rasmussen allegedly attempted to choke the driver of a moving car but the driver was able to stop the car and escape. Rasmussen’s girlfriend fled as well but was struck by another car and killed. As a result, Rasmussen is facing a charge of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. Rasmussen wrestled for WWE from 2009-2010, when he was released.
Opinion: That’s about as serious as it gets and that’s never good to see. Rasmussen is facing some serious issues and I’m not sure what it is going to mean for him going forward. It’s always weird to see a wrestler’s name pop up in something like this and in this case, it is one of the worse things you could find as someone was killed in the process. Hopefully this works out as well as possible, but things are already in quite the bad situation.
