The 52-year-old, one of wrestling’s biggest superstars throughout the 90s and early 00s, was cuffed at 7:32am in Florida for possessing the gun.

TMZ report officials have confirmed she was detained at a security checkpoint in Tampa International Airport.

She allegedly had a loaded Glock 9mm and is still behind bars with her bail set at $2,000 (£1,590).

Runnels, who managed real-life husband Goldust aka Dustin Runnels, is listed as 5’0″, 119 pounds with blue eyes and blonde hair on her booking sheet.

The charge carries a punishment of a maximum five years prison time with a potential £5k fine.

The sexy stunner, who debuted in WWE as Marlena in 1996, was married to Dustin between 1993 and 1999.

The couple have one daughter together named Dakota.

She later had a five-year relationship with American soldier Tyree Clowe, who was 15 years her junior.

Runnels then dated professional wrestler New Jack in 2009 but a Florida judge ordered the grappler two years later to stop selling nude photographs of his ex after the couple split.

Runnels filed suit, accusing Jack of making libellous comments about her and requested he be banned from distributing sexually-explicit snaps of her.

Jack argued he took them and that they belonged to him and he should be free to pass them to whoever he chooses.

A judge in Florida, temporarily banned the grappler from selling the photos prior to the hearing.

Runnels mainly worked as a manager throughout her wrestling career, working with some of the biggest names in the business.

Former tag team champions The Hardy Boyz and Edge and Christian are just two of the duos she formed an allegiance with.

Runnels did occasionally wrestle herself and famously she won the WWE Hardcore Championship in 2002 – making her one of just four females to hold the belt.

She has also volunteered to help numerous charities such as Make A Wish, Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Children’s Miracle Network.
