Here it is ... the incredible video of former WWE star Shawn Daivari literally choking the piss out of an unruly train passenger who allegedly threatened to kill a guy on board.... AND IT'S AWESOME!!
 
TMZ broke the story ... Shawn was riding on a train en route to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport back in September ... when an allegedly drunk man started talking smack to one of the passengers. Daivari says the man was shouting racial slurs and threatened to kill one of the people on the train.

That's when Daivari decided to take action -- the video shows Daivari calmly removing his jacket and sunglasses .... and then approaching the man from behind where he applied a ferocious rear naked choke.

As Daivari applied more pressure, the man fell to the ground -- eventually losing consciousness and urinating on himself.

Moments later, Daivari and another passenger grabbed the man and threw him off the train on to a platform -- with Daivari delivering a few kicks for good measure.

Daivari had previously told us, "I wasn't going to wait any longer to see if a cop showed up."

Ahhh... Good ol' MURDERapolis. My hometown!! You think the lightrail is bad, you should see the buses! And the police departments are severely understaffed. Thank god Daivari was able to handle yet another one of these wannabe thugs that run rampant in the Twin Cities. Awesome!!

Glad everything turned out great but do be careful because the guy could have died and threatening someone with words would not justify killing him and u know how this "justice" system works.

How does that not qualify as assault? I mean the dude he chocked sounds like a total ass wipe but verbal abuse does not legally justify a physical retaliation. I could even see him subduing the guy, but kicking him while he's down, no matter how much the guy deserved it, is not defensive or proportionate to what he was doing. I'm sure this simple logic will be much derided here, but reasonable is reasonable, popular or not...

I'm okay with everything except the "few kicks" to an unconscious man. Still, I wouldn't harp about the kicks to him.

I love the shot they put at the end ... dude sitting there in a puddle of his own piss, wondering where it all went wrong, as the train just pulls away.
