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."

He should have thrown the punk onto the tracks in front of an oncoming train. I hate thugs who think they can muscle people around. Props to Shawn!

The evidence on that video shows the WWE Entertainer should be arrested for Assault and Battery with malicious intent.

Guy was drunk and stupid but seemed to be minding his own business till some moron decided to bring a bike on the train. From there it did seem the guy got loud and irritated but still no reason to physically go for someone. Especially to choke them out. The guy wasn't armed, and then stomping him once he was off the train. For someone to pee themselves while unconscious is pretty serious... this could have ended very badly.

Oh yeah! Love it! Society needs so much more of this, then maybe some of these loud mouth push and threaten bullies will think twice before they pick on people. There was no assault, there was only real justice, they type you never get in court.

That is a Conservative way to think.

Yeah.

I do not know his politics, but that was the Right thing to do and everyone on that train knows it, even if they won't say it out loud.

That is the same theory behind legal gun ownership and defending your gun rights.
