WWE Star Ricardo Rodriguez got a traffic-stop smackdown yesterday … when cops nailed the wrestler for speeding while on his way to film Monday Night Raw.
Sources tell TMZ, Rodriguez put the pedal to the metal — allegedly clocking 70 mph in a 55 mph zone — when cops pulled him over … mere miles from the Greensboro, NC Coliseum where last night’s show was being held.
R-Rod knows when he’s been made (photo below) … and accepted the ginormous $200 speeding ticket with no objections.
We’re told the ticket was so expensive because Rodriguez was speeding through a construction zone (note the orange cones) … which is a big no-no on any road.
Remember people … mind the cone zone.
