Former WWE Wrestler Placed on Strict Probation for Domestic Violence

A federal judge in Pennsylvania has placed former WWE wrestler and Tough Enough contestant Matt Cappotelli on probation for one year after he was charged with domestic violence.

Cappotelli was arrested in July of 2018, and charged with “simple assault/domestic violence.” He pled guilty to the charge, which resulted in the probationary sentence. The terms of his probation require him to attend anger management classes, have no contact with the victim, and abstain from alcohol and drugs.

Cappotelli is best known as a contestant on the third season of WWE’s Tough Enough reality show, where he won a developmental contract with the company. He was released before ever wrestling on TV. In 2017, he was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent surgery in May of that year.

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 22 (UPI) — Former WWE wrestler Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka was placed on strict probation for domestic violence in a California court this week.

The 61-year-old professional wrestler will be on probation for three years after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. Snuka’s punishment also includes 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling, 25 hours of community service and a $500 fine.

Snuka was arrested in September, when he was accused of attacking his girlfriend at the Days Inn hotel in Whitehall Township, Pa., during an argument. The woman told police that Snuka slammed her head into a door and threw her into a wall causing her to lose consciousness on May 10 after an argument over his infidelity.

Snuka is best known for his time with the WWE and has been inducted in the WWF Hall of Fame. He was also featured in the ESPN documentary 30 for 30: The Price of Gold which centered on the 1994 death of his then girlfriend Nancy Argentino.

According to a report from TMZ, former WWE Superstar Shad Gaspard was recently arrested for a domestic violence incident that took place in Florida. As noted, the criminal charge of “battery-touch or strike” has been filed against Gaspard, and he was scheduled to appear in court on May 7.

At this point in time, it appears that Gaspard has been granted probation by the courts. In addition to a 12 month probation period, Gaspard must also undergo anger management courses and be subject to drug tests. However, if he is able to stay out of trouble for the duration of his probation period, the charge will then be dropped.

Gaspard, who was recently seen backstage at Monday Night RAW along with several other former Superstars, has yet to publicly comment on the matter as of this writing.
