Man what a fall he's taken. It was only four years ago that he looked like he was gonna breakout and become a huge star. He had a falling out with TNA soon after and was never the same after that. He did get signed and released in record time by the WWE, and had a short run with TNA where he just looked terrible and did nothing of note after coming back as A.J's masked attacker.

A former WWE wrestler was arrested in Florida yesterday after cops say he was injecting himself with stolen pain medicine ... while hiding inside the bathroom of a local Chili's restaurant.
Tyson Tomko -- who wrestled in the WWE between 2002 and 2009 -- is accused of robbing a CVS Pharmacy on October 10th ... allegedly threatening to attack the pharmacist unless he forked over several bottles of Oxycodone.
The pharmacist claims he complied -- and Tomko escaped with 210 tablets of the powerful painkiller.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Tomko went to a nearby Chili's ... where he asked his waitress for a spoon. When the server brought him a teaspoon, he asked for a "deeper spoon" ... and when he got it, he took it to the men's room ... where he remained for 30 to 40 minutes.
Cops were eventually tipped off ... and when they arrived on the scene, one officer says Tomko had "needle marks and blood running down his arm" ... and had just flushed something down the toilet.
Tomko was taken into custody -- and allegedly told police he has a "severe drug problem."
Cops say Tomko admitted he took the Oxycodone from CVS ... and injected 178 pills, which he crushed up and melted down ... but he swore he never threatened the pharmacist.
Tomko was taken to a nearby hospital ... then transported to a nearby jail, where he was booked for robbery. He's currently behind bars -- bond was set at $7,500.
Jeez he was really on a good one. Stealing pills is one thing, but the fact that he couldn't even go home and get a spoon and did it in such a crazy fashion is something else. I don't see how he's alive if he really slammed all that.
Good luck getting your life back together Tomko, I know how tough addiction is.

God, I would so use that as a sign at the next Smackdown taping I go to. Of course, they would have to decide to finally have a RAW in Seattle instead. Maybe I'll just go there and hold up a Tommy Dreamer = Ratings! sign.
