WWE Star Hauls Ass

to Monday Night Raw ...

BUSTED for Speeding

5/8/2012 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

WWE Star Ricardo Rodriguez
WWE Star Ricardo Rodriguez got a traffic-stop smackdown yesterday ... when cops nailed the wrestler for speeding while on his way to film Monday Night Raw.

Sources tell TMZ, Rodriguez put the pedal to the metal -- allegedly clocking 70 mph in a 55 mph zone -- when cops pulled him over ... mere miles from the Greensboro, NC Coliseum where last night's show was being held.

R-Rod knows when he's been made (photo below) ... and accepted the ginormous $200 speeding ticket with no objections.

We're told the ticket was so expensive because Rodriguez was speeding through a construction zone (note the orange cones) ... which is a big no-no on any road.

Remember people ... mind the cone zone.

This guy is a wrestler? Seriously? I have a feeling that since absolutely no one outside of a few wrestling fans have any idea who this clown is you just picked a picture of some anonymous goober.
Oh, and TMZ - how much did you have to pay for the "EXCLUSIVE" picture of the traffic cones? Are yo really that desperate?

Alberto Del Rio is suppose to be a huge superstar the WWE spends alot of money renting cars for his ring entrance when he comes in a suit it is very nice, and the here comes Ricardo Rodriqiuz in a suit that looks like they took off a dead bumb in the park.
