When the news was made public last Thursday that World Wrestling Entertainment released former Women’s Champion Mickie James, 22-year old Zavr Peygumbari was not very happy. According to The Connecticut Post, Peygumbari is accused of calling WWE Headquarters in Stamford, Conn. over 20 times and threatening he would blow up WWE offices for releasing James and then visit the building “with a machete and a machine gun.”
Peygumbari was arrested last Friday and arraigned this past Monday at the state Superior Court in Stamford. His defense attorney described Peygumbari as a “fervent” wrestling fan who did not intend to follow through with his threats. He was charged with one count of second-degree harassment, two counts of second-degree threatening and four counts of fourth-degree threatening.
During the arraignment, the judge informed Peygumbari that he was no longer allowed to contact WWE employees, go near its Stamford offices, or attend live events.
