According to a report from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, former WWE Tough Enough competitor Dan Rodimer is running for the US House of Representatives in 2020 as a Republican from Nevada. Rodimer was part of the WWE Tough Enough season in 2004 that included The Miz and Daniel Puder.
Rodimer ran for Nevada state senate last year but lost. He was on FOX News’ “Fox & Friends” show recently and said he wanted to form a tag-team with Donald Trump if he’s elected.
The Daily Beast ran a story about a 2010 arrest Rodimer had in which he was charged with misdemeanor battery for an incident at a Waffle House in Naples, Florida. He grabbed a man by the neck at around 2:30 AM, then challenged someone else to a fight. He said he likes to “f*** people up”. Police came and arrested him after finding his business card on the scene (which he threw down and featured his name and face on it), and he allegedly told them at the time that he liked to hurt people. The misdemeanor charge was dropped and he went through anger management.
