John ‘The Berzerker’ Nord Sentenced to 5 Years Probation Following DUIs


Former-WWF Superstar John “The Berzerker” Nord has been sentenced to five years probation, under the the condition that he avoid driving and stay in restrictive housing, according to the Minnesota Star Tribune.

The sentence comes after Nord was arrested for driving under the influence of painkillers. He has been arrested for the crime seven times, and will have to make visits to the court to update the judge on his condition.

Nord was best known for his time with WWE (then WWF) in the early 90s, as the viking character known as The Berzerker. He got his start with a lumberjack character, Yukon John, in the AWA, eventually going to WWF, and then AJPW & WCW under his real name.
