The former WWE star’s fighting skills came in handy on Thursday at Destin Beach, Fla. Snow, whose legal name is Allen Sarven, saved a child’s life. to fight as a “ninja ranger” wearing a mannequin head and a mask.
In an interview with TMZ, Snow said he heard screams from the ocean and then saw a boy struggling to reach his floating device. The 58-year-old then took action.
“I think he was catching the wave because every time a wave came in he started to get farther and farther away, and I could see that he was starting to panic,” Snow said. “And I heard my mother shout, ‘Someone is helping her.’ The lifeguard got up, but I knew he wouldn’t get there in time. when one more came out.If I hadn’t caught it, I think it would have come out to sea.
“That would be it.”
A wave hit Snow and the boy then, but the WWE star stood for long enough for the boy – who Snow described as “a little scared” and “really shaken” – to return to the lifeguard and the sand. Snow said he was almost exhausted from falling at that point.
The incident reminded Snow Shad Gaspard, Who died while swimming at Marina Del Ray Beach in California with his 10-year-old son last May.
Once the boy and his mother got together, they came to the Snow to thank him. The boy then called Snowbuilder Body, igniting Snow’s ego a bit.
“Ooh, I have to look pretty good,” Snow thought.
After completing his professional wrestling career in 2017, Snow bought Ohio Valley Wrestling in 2018, and in January 2021 sold its major shares. He continues as CEO of Promotion and oversees day-to-day operations.
Snow’s fighting games made him a hero for some in his heyday, but rescuing this child was his most heroic act. And unlike most fighters, he spoke modestly about it.
“I didn’t do anything that no one else would do,” Snow said.
