WWE Shooting

Cop Guns Down

Dangerous Obssesed Fan

9 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0831-wwe-shooting-TWITTER-01A deputy opened fire on a man outside the WWE's training center in Orlando -- seriously injuring the guy ... who has a history of bizarre incidents at the WWE.

An Orange County Sheriff's deputy confronted Armando Montalvo at the WWE Performance Center on Monday afternoon. The situation reportedly turned violent, and that's when the deputy fired. 

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, the wrestling org. got a restraining order against Montalvo earlier this month after a string of violent run-ins at the facility. Earlier this summer, the WWE says Montalvo spread his feces and urine on the building. He even posted video of himself mixing the human waste with reduced fat milk.

On multiple occasions ... he allegedly showed up in a wrestling outfit, banged on windows, and threatened to kick everyone's ass because they wouldn't hire him. One of the times he was swinging a large chain, and police had to subdue him at gunpoint.

Just 5 days Montalvo posted a video of himself outside the building saying he was going to go ask for a job. He said, "What's the worst they can say?"

Montalvo had to have surgery after Monday's shooting.

Fired for Nazi Pics

EXCLUSIVE

0831-seth-rollins-zahra-wwe-getty-instagramWWE diva Zahra Schreiber, the girlfriend of WWE superstar Seth Rollins, has been fired from the organization because of pro-Nazi artwork she posted on her Instagram.

Zahra posted pics back in 2012 of swastikas and a "My Little Pony" character dressed as Hitler ... one-armed salute and all. She removed the pics but someone dug them up over the weekend.

The WWE got wind of it, and swiftly fired her, "due to inappropriate and offensive remarks."

Zahra said when she posted the pics, "I like history ha." She also said, "The swastika means prosperity and luck. It was around way before Hitler turned it into an icon."

Apparently the WWE wasn't buying what she was selling.  

Hulk Hogan

On N-Word Rant:

I Wanted to Kill Myself

Hulk Hogan says his life was in shambles at the time he went on his N-word rant -- and things were so bad, he contemplated suicide.  

Hogan appeared on "Good Morning America" and tried to explain where his head was at in 2006 when he repeatedly hurled racial slurs in a rant caught on video.

"I was to the point where I wanted to kill myself, you know? I was completely broken and destroyed and said, ‘What's the easiest way out of this?' I mean, I was lost."

Hogan says he's begging his fans for forgiveness over using the word -- and insists he's not a racist person at heart.   

"I'm not a racist but I never should have said what I said. It was wrong. I'm embarrassed by it."

Hogan also says he "inherited" racial bias from growing up in Tampa back in the day -- explaining, "People need to realize that you inherit things from your environment. And where I grew up was south Tampa, Port Tampa, and it was a really rough neighborhood, very low income. And all my friends, we greeted each other saying that word."

WWE Superstar Dean Ambrose

Fan Attempts Sneak Attack

After Smackdown

8/30/2015 6:53 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dean Ambrose, one of the giants in the WWE, was almost attacked during a taping of Smackdown ... attacked by a guy some say was holding a sharp object which at least one fan says was a knife.

It happened right after the show in Providence.  You see the would-be attacker come right for Ambrose, but a quick-thinking security uses a wrestling move of his own, body slamming him to the ground.

It's unclear what happened to the guy or what if anything he was clutching.

 Dean was unharmed.

Hulk Hogan

I Still Love WWE

... And I Wanna Be Trump's Running Mate

8/29/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Two interesting comments from Hulk Hogan -- he's NOT mad with the WWE for cutting ties with him over the N-word ... and says he wants to make America great again, by running with Donald Trump!!!!

First, the WWE thing ... it's been more than a month since Vince McMahon wiped all traces of Hogan from the website after reports surfaced that he used the N-word in a racial rant years ago. 

Even after several black wrestlers and celebs vouched for Hulk -- saying he's not a racist at heart -- Vince has refused to bring him back into the WWE universe. 

So, how does Hogan feel about being blackballed? Check out the clip ... he views the situation more as a temporary "family" conflict and joked that the only "hard feelings" he's going to have is "when I get [Vince McMahon] in the ring again." 

As for the Trump comments ... Hulk says he thinks the country is finally ready for Vice President Hogan, brother.

Ronda Rousey Porn Trailer

Naked Armbars ...

For Miesha Taint!

8/26/2015 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

It's a Ronda Rousey fantasy come true -- for UFC and porn fans alike --  and TMZ Sports has the first look at "Ronda ArousMe" ... the highly anticipated porn parody of the champ.

The good folks at Burning Angel won't say when they'll have a full release of the XXX film ... so, soak this up. It features Ronda taking on foes like Miesha Taint. Awesome porn wordplay, right? 

It's also got tons of MMA action and some dialogue ... not that you care.  

FYI -- Burning Angel is NOT the company that made the muti-million dollar offer for the real Ronda to do a porn, but since she'll NEVER actually do that -- this is as close as you're gonna get. 

Hands where we can see 'em, please.

Holy Cross Football

WWE Practice

Coaches Act Out SummerSlam

8/26/2015 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Two Holy Cross football coaches just turned a regular practice into an all-out pro wrestling styled WAR ... reenacting the epic SummerSlam match for their team.

The combatants? A linebackers coach and a tight ends coach in the roles of Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker. Our friends over at BSO reposted this move-for-move portrayal of the bout ... filled with all the chest slaps and chokeslams of the original.

If this doesn't get Holy Cross players fired up for the Monmouth University opener ... nothing will.

Jon Stewart

Powerslammed By John Cena

... Payback's a Bitch!

8/25/2015 6:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Good luck finding your moment of zen now ... 

Jon Stewart -- whose old job was safely positioned behind a desk, never once attacked by a musclebound thug -- was powerslammed by John Cena last night ... hard. 

The former "Daily Show" host appeared on WWE's "Monday Night Raw" where he was confronted by Cena ... who was still pissed at Jon for hitting him with a steel chair at SummerSlam this weekend. 

They argued. Cena got mad. And then picked up Stewart ... twirled him around like a rag doll ... and then punished him with his famous finishing move, the Attitude Adjustment.

Fake or definitely fake ... getting thrown to the mat like that has GOT to hurt.

UFC's Brittney Palmer

Hubby Won't Be Charged with Attempted Murder

In Choking Case

8/19/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0818-palmer-zalewski-instagram-getty-01The husband of UFC Octagon girl Brittney Palmer just got a HUGE break ... he won't be prosecuted for allegedly brutalizing her so badly he was arrested for attempted murder.

Aaron Zalewski allegedly choked Brittney within an inch of her life after an argument over a cell phone. She says he overheard her talking to a casting agent who called her "babe" and he went berserk. 

Law enforcement sources tell us, Aaron Zalewski will not be charged with a crime. The L.A. City Attorney will hold an informal meeting with the two. If he owns what he did and shows contrition, he won't be prosecuted. The City Attorney could force him into anger management in return for dropping the case.

One string will stay attached ... if he does it again before the statute of limitations runs out, the City Attorney would have the right to file charges. 

Brittney and Aaron are still together.

WWE

Taps Out ...

On 'Submission Sorority'

8/7/2015 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0807-wwe-divas-instagram-01The WWE fixed its colossal XXX mistake ... by dropping its Divas team name after it accidentally pointed fans toward tons of Internet porn. 

According to the WWE, it changed Paige, Charlotte and Becky's Submission Sorority because its TV programming is PG -- and they didn't know the name had porn ties.

As we reported ... the search results for Submission Sorority turned up thousands of porn results.

During Thursday night’s episode of "SmackDown" the Diva team name was quietly changed to PCB on parts of WWE's website. Charlotte even started hashtagging with it.

0805_submission-sorority_wweThe WWE just made a XXX-sized oops ... by naming a group of their Divas after a hardcore porn series -- which likely directed their fans toward the wrong kind of pile drivers.

During "Monday Night Raw," WWE unveiled Submission Sorority -- the new official team name for sexy Divas ... Paige, Becky, and Charlotte. Sure, it's a badass name ... but an Internet search for the team points you to tons of links for a porn series called HazeHer, produced by BangBros.

Social media went nuts after 'Raw' -- some people thought it was hilarious, but others were pissed kids could be exposed to porn.

BangBros traffic analyst Delilah Mcginnis says their web traffic shot up 56% overnight, and they saw a 35% rise in subscriptions. 

Not shockingly, we're told the porn co. plans to send Vince McMahon a 'thank you' gift basket -- God only knows what will be in it.
