Thief breaks into WWE wrestlers' rental car in Minneapolis

It was a cold ride to the airport for Lince Dorado and Cedric Alexander.

A pair of WWE wrestlers didn't have the warmest of welcomes to Minneapolis this week, as their rental car was broken into while they performed for fans at Target Center.

Lince Dorado and Cedric Alexander, who are cruiserweights who perform in WWE's "205 Live" show, which was recorded at Target Center before Smackdown Live on Tuesday, got back to their car to find the passenger-side window had been smashed.

Items had been taken from inside too, with Dorado – who wrestles as part of the Lucha House Party stable – tweeting the following:

Alexander meanwhile shared video of the damage to Instagram.

Alexander later wrote on Twitter that he "ended up with glass stuck to my butt on the way to the airport," while Dorado tweeted that he had a fanny pack stolen.

Arguably worse than glass on the butt, however, is the fact the pair had to drive to MSP Airport with a window down in wintry Minneapolis.

Dorado summed it up pretty well.
