Pro tip: Don't force your way into the kitchen of a restaurant owned by a pro wrestler and be packing.

What happens when you're carrying a gun and you force your way into the kitchen of a restaurant owned by a prominent professional wrestler? You get bodyslammed by the wrestler's husband, who used to be a bouncer, and face a count of felony aggravated unlawful use of a weapon.

TMZ reports that that's just what happened at The Squared Circle on Ashland recently, when the man entered the kitchen of the wrestling-themed spot owned by Lisa Marie Varon and reached for a gun he had concealed near his waist. Check out the video below of Lee Varon taking the man down. The Squared Circle is up for sale and Lisa Marie hopes to move to California, yet is "likely" to remain owner.
