Some more details from the Wrestling-Online Newsletter:




- A person was shot outside the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, today at around 1PM according to NBC affiliate WESH Orlando news station. The Orange County Sheriff’s Office said deputies attended to a trespassing call at 5055 Forsyth Commerce Road, the site of the Performance Center, and an altercation with a male resulted in the deputy opening fire on him. The same person was arrested at the same location a few days ago. “Unfortunately a deranged individual with no WWE affiliation, who had a court order prohibiting him from being on WWE property, was involved with an Orange County Sheriff's deputy in the parking lot of the WWE Performance Center. We defer to the Orange County Sheriff's department for further comment and information,” said a statement from WWE. The individual was not killed and was transported to Orlando Regional Medical Center.



- Scenes outside the WWE Performance Center resemble those from a movie as tons of police cars surround the property after a man was shot by a Sheriff deputy earlier today. During a press conference on site held by Orange County Sheriff Jerry Demings, he said that a 29 year old Hispanic male by the name of Armando, who was fixated on one of the female wrestlers, refused to back down after officers gave him the order. Instead, he charged at them with a knife and he was fired upon. The Sheriff added that they have encountered the same man three times over the last few weeks. The WWE Performance security cameras captured the shooting. The same individual came to the Performance Center two weeks ago with a chain threatening the employees of the state-of-the-art facility and WWE got a restraining order on him however he was back again today. WWE employees at the Performance Center were also questioned by the police.

TMZ has confirmed that the man shot by police at the WWE Performance Center today is Armando Alejandro Montalvo.


As noted, the man, who was obsessed with a female WWE talent, was also arrested at the Performance Center on August 4th after an incident. TMZ notes that the man had a string of violent run-ins at the WWE facility and was accused of spreading his feces and urine on the building earlier this summer. He also posted video of himself mixing his waste with reduced fat milk.


TMZ also says the man allegedly showed up at the Performance Center multiple times, wearing a wrestling outfit. One time he was banging on the windows and threatening to kick everyone’s ass because WWE wouldn’t hire him. On one occasion, the man was swinging a large chain and police had to subdue him at gunpoint.
