Who is Joe Cantrell and why was he banned from Wal-Mart?

The saga continues . . .

Former pro wrestler, Joe Cantrell, was allegedly “banned for life from Wal-Mart for ad matching” last week at a Wal-Mart store in San Tan Valley, Arizona.  According to a source at TV station WXYZ, Cantrell spends his spare time  checking prices at local stores and then going to Wal-Mart “to get the cheapest price” for its merchandise by ad matching.

0000000000walmartban_1386681482624_1629122_ver1.0_640_480According to Wal-Mart’s website the company is “committed to providing low prices every day on everything.”  If a shopper finds “a lower advertised price on an identical product” Wal-Mart will “match it right at the register.”

Cantrell was told by an employee he would not be able to match the price on a specific type of item.  Cantrell became upset and a manager was called.  A Wal-Mart representative stated that Cantrell “became aggressive” arguing for the price match” and the store manager to whom Cantrell was speaking “felt threatened.”

Cantrell, who says: “I love Wal-Mart”, admits he “was upset” but denies threatening the employee.  As Cantrell left the location the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office was called so the employee could report that he “was being intimidated and threatened.”

Four days later when Cantrell was making one of his frequent visits to the store, three deputies handcuffed him before giving him a summons and formal notification of his lifetime ban from the store.   Cantrell began to cry and was quickly released once it was determined that he posed no present threat.

Wal-Mart spokesperson Brooke Buchanan told the press yesterday that Cantrell allegedly “threatened the associate’s life” and wrote a Facebook post indicating he would “kick the associate’s butt.”  Buchanan also provided the press with a statement:

“This situation was about the safety of our associate and not our ad match policy. We make every effort to make sure our customers have a good experience in our stores. As in previous situations, we attempted to work with this customer. However, in this situation, the associate felt unsafe and so we contacted local law enforcement. We are continuing to cooperate with law enforcement on their investigation.”

Buchanan was unable to comment further due to the ongoing investigation.  She did, however, note that while Joe Cantrell is facing charges of threatening, intimidation and disorderly conduct, the store associate is pressing the charges against him not Wal-Mart.
