(Updated) Arrest warrant issued for former WWE wrestler Daniel Rodimer on murder charge

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Update: Daniel Rodimer turned himself in on Wednesday night and has been released on $200,000 bail. New3LV.com reports that Rodimer is scheduled to appear in court on April 10. In a correction from what I wrote below, while the incident occurred at the Resorts World Las Vegas hotel, Christopher Tapp technically died at Sunrise Hospital.


The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department issued an arrest warrant for former WWE wrestler Daniel Rodimer on the charge of open murder. The warrant is related to the death of 47-year-old Christopher Tapp at Resorts World Las Vegas on October 29, 2023. Tapper’s death was originally labeled an accident, but police now say they have learned that he had an altercation at the resort prior to his death.

Powell’s POV: Rodimer debuted in WWE as a Tough Enough contestant and was signed to a developmental contract in 2006 before being released in 2007. He also ran unsuccessful political campaigns in Nevada and Texas.

  1. He already surrendered to police.

  2. The victim, Cristopher Tapp, offered Rodimer’s stepdaughter cocaine at a party, and pushed or punched Tapp, causing him to fall and hit his head on a small table.
