Being a professional athlete sometimes when you are out in public strange things happen. There are times when a professional athlete whether a football player, baseball player or even a fighter in the UFC has to step in to break up an altercation between patrons at a bar or restaurant, it does happen.
What do you do if a fight breaks out in public between two WWE Superstars and you have to be the one to break it up?
UFC fighter and former Alabama football player “Ya Boi” Eryk Anders can now add WWE referee to his resume’ as he played the role of “cooler” In Las Vegas when WWE superstars Dolph Ziggler and Goldberg who recently had heat on a WWE pay per view got into a real altercation at a steakhouse in Las Vegas.
Goldberg was there to meet up with longtime friend and former UFC fighter Roy “Big Country” Nelson when he ran into Ziggler, who apparently forgot that the gimmick was over.
Here is a clip of the action captured by a fan.
