Former WWE superstar Shad Gaspard body slammed a gun wielding armed robber this weekend ... and now TMZ Sports has the surveillance video.
As we reported ... Gaspard was at a gas station convenience store when a man pulled out a hand gun ... and pointed it at the 6'5", nearly 300lb. wrestler.
What happens next is crazy ... Gaspard rushes the would-be robber and takes the gun away (it turned out to be a BB gun).
S.G. then grabs the man by the neck and forces him outside ... before BODY SLAMMING him on the concrete.
Gaspard held the assailant down while police rolled to the gas station ... and placed the man under arrest.
BTW, Shad joined the guys on "TMZ Sports" and gave a play-by-play of the scary situation.
