A former WWE wrestler rumored to appear in the next "Batman" movie thwarted an armed would-be robber on Saturday night, saying later that "I'm not dying in Florida."

Shad Gaspard was making a purchase at a convenience store in the Coral Springs area when he was approached by the suspect, according to TMZ. He was with fellow wrestler "JTG," according to Pro Wrestling Sheet.

"Hey man, buy me a beer," the man told Gaspard, cops told TMZ.

The suspect then pulled out a weapon, which turned out to be a BB gun, the gossip site reported.

Gaspard, who is 6-foot-6 and nearly 300 pounds, took the gun away from the suspect. After the man tried to flee, Gaspard put him in a chokehold to keep him at bay until cops arrived, according to Pro Wrestling Sheet.

He told Pro Wrestling Sheet he acted swiftly because "I’m not dying in Florida."

"I thought it was a real gun the entire time and honestly, I just didn’t want anyone to get hurt," Gaspard told PWS. "I just kept thinking about how I wanted to make sure I got home to my son."
