Every year it seems Scott Hall is shown in a negative light in the media and more times than not it has been his own doing. In his most recent debacle Hall was asked to leave a regional promotion due to being too intoxicated to perform.
WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall was physically escorted out of a wrestling event in New Jersey over the weekend due to being intoxicated according to report by TMZ.com.
Hall was reportedly unable to perform and the event promoter, Ricky Otazu had him removed. Ortazu told TMZ: “The event was too well run for us to make a fool of ourselves by allowing him to appear. We will no longer be associated with him until he gets his life in order.”
A press release sent to us by Al Half of Florida Pro Wrestling provides a small update on Scott Hall following the news that he was removed from an independent wrestling event for being intoxicated:
“Scott Hall was asked to leave the Skate and Surf Festival in Asbury Park, NJ after having a few drinks that were believed to be given to him by band members of the event or one of their runners. Dropkick Murphy headlined that day along with professional wrestling presented by Jersey Championship Wrestling. Hall was fine the next morning and left on an earlier flight to see DDP. He did not attend the second day of the event.
Jake “The Snake” Roberts took Hall’s place in a tag team match Sunday night with Sean “X-Pac” Waltman & Santana Garrett as they defeated the Playas’ Club.
Diamond Dallas Page has also commented on the Scott Hall intoxication incident over the weekend:
“Scott is going through a life process. He’s stumbled along the way, but he is doing well overall. I’ve got his back.”
He added: “Even Jake ‘The Snake’ has fallen a few times, but he is now one year sober and doing great.”
Scott was signed to Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling recently but from his latest blunder he was forced to part ways with the promotion. He would’ve been used in more of a managerial type of talent but now sadly won’t be used at all.
