Former Tough Enough contestant and WWE developmental talent Daniel Rodimer is wanted in connection with the murder of Christopher Tapp in Las Vegas.

Tapp, 47, was found dead in his hotel room due to blunt force trauma to the head. At first, police believed it was an accident. Police now have evidence that there was a fight in Tapp’s hotel room that night and that his death wasn’t an accident.

Tapp spent 20 years in prison for a rape and murder he did not commit.

Rodimer competed on the fourth season of the WWE reality show which also featured Mike Mizanin who would go on to become The Miz, Nick Mitchell who would become Mitch of the Spirit Squad and the eventual winner Daniel Puder.

Rodimer was a former arena league football player and was released by the WWE after being employed as a developmental talent for a year.

He went on to run for the Nevada State Senate, Nevada’s 3rd congressional district and Texas’s 6th congressional district special election. He never won any of those positions.

In the past, Rodimer has been arrested three times for assault but has never been convicted.
