Former WWE star sentenced to 153 days in prison
As per CBS Detroit, Kyle Rasmussen was accused of trying to hurt someone badly and was given a bond of $25,000 in cash to make sure he appears in court.
This happened in 2012 in Rochester Hills. The 42-year-old was sitting in the back of a Chevrolet car. We don’t know why, but the wrestler suddenly took hold of the steering wheel and tried to choke the 31-year-old man who was driving. Then, the wrestler ran away from the place.
Rasmussen must follow probation for two years after his 153-day jail time. The ex-wrestler said he didn’t do it on July 7, right before the trial started.
Kyle Rasmussen’s career
Before the 42-year-old worked with WWE, he played football for Michigan State University. He was a defensive lineman for many years and finished college. Then, he became part of The Minnesota Vikings in the NFL. But his football time ended early because of injuries.
Conrad Tanner joined WWE in 2009, but he was only there for a short time with Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). While he was with WWE, Rasmussen teamed up with the company’s top wrestlers, like Roman Reigns and former star Naomi.
