That's good. I've had relatives with Parkinson's and it's terrible.

Is it pathetic that my first thought when I read Marty's post was 'how much of this is a work' just because dude can't stop being a carny?

Daniel Rodimer, who competed in the 2004 WWE Tough Enough reality competition and worked for the company as a developmental talent from 2006 through 2007 is currently wanted for murder in relation to the death of 47-year-old Christopher Tapp after an incident at a hotel on the Las Vegas strip. Tapp later passed away at a hospital.

While Tapp's death was initially believed to have been an accident, KMVT TV later reported that Tapp's death was being investigated for murder. Tapp died after what had been reported as a fight in his hotel room in October 2023. The Clark County Coroner's office officially ruled his death a homicide, stating the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head.

News 3 Las Vegas reported today that an arrest warrant and criminal complaint against Rodimer were filed in Las Vegas Justice Court this week for a charge of open murder. The criminal complaint filed by the Clark County District Attorney's office alleges Rodimer killed Tapp by striking him "on the head, the said killing having been willful, deliberate and premeditated."

Rodimer, who attempted to for Congress as a Republican several years ago, losing in a narrow race in 2022, has not wrestled since his WWE release in 2007.
CBS affiliate KLAS channel 8 in Las Vegas is reporting that former WWE developmental talent Daniel Rodimer has turned himself in to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police after a warrant for his arrest was issued earlier this week on charges of Open Murder.

Rodimer was wanted in relation to the death of 47-year-old Christopher Tapp after an incident at a hotel on the Las Vegas strip. Tapp later passed away at a hospital. While Tapp's death was initially believed to have been an accident, KMVT TV later reported that Tapp's death was being investigated for murder. Tapp died after what had been reported as a fight in his hotel room in October 2023. The Clark County Coroner's office officially ruled his death a homicide, stating the cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head.

KLAS is reporting:

"Detectives believe former Republican congressional candidate Dan Rodimer attacked a man, killing him, after the man — who himself was acquitted of murder — allegedly offered Rodimer’s stepdaughter cocaine during a party in a Las Vegas Strip hotel room."

"A witness then heard Rodimer say, “If you ever talk to my daughter again, I’ll [expletive] kill you,” documents said. “Immediately after hearing Dan say this to Christopher, [the witness] heard two loud banging noises.”



A second witness told police she saw “Dan knock Christopher to the ground, at which time Christopher’s head hit a small table,” documents said. “Dan proceeded to punch Christopher throughout his head and body.”

Another witness told a person attending the hotel room party that Tapp slipped and fell and hit his head on a coffee table, documents said. Other witnesses told police several people used cocaine at the party.

The criminal complaint filed by the Clark County District Attorney's office alleges Rodimer killed Tapp by striking him "on the head, the killing having been willful, deliberate and premeditated."

KLAS also reported that authorities uncovered text messages between Rodimer and his wife, noting Sarah Rodimer said, “I watched you nearly murder somebody and I had to take your [expletive] hands off from his neck as he laid there and you ran away and I spent the next two hours trying to take care of him. Nobody should have to watch their husband murder somebody.”

I always get him confused with Daniel Puder when I see his name.
