It’s been well-known for quite some time now that WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall has had issues with alcohol. However, after fellow wrestling legends Diamond Dallas Page and Jake “The Snake” Roberts reached out to Hall in February of 2013, Hall — other than a few slips — had given up alcohol, and turned his life around. Well, unfortunately, it seems that he slipped yet again, as he was physically escorted out of a wrestling event in Asbury Park, New Jersey, over the weekend, because he was allegedly too drunk to do his job.
It appears that Hall was given multiple chances to sober up, but he never did. After it was clear that Hall wasn’t going to be able to do his job, the organizers of the event asked Hall to leave, he refused, and demanded to be paid. Eventually, security stepped in and escorted Hall out of the event.
The promoter of the event, Ricky Otazu, told TMZ Sports that he will no longer work with Hall until Hall cleans up his act and gets his life together.
“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.”
This isn’t the first time Hall has had issues with an appearance at an independent wrestling show. Back in 2011, Hall appeared at an event in Fall River, Massachusetts, and was incoherent. However, the promoter of the show decided to let Hall appear anyway.
Hall was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame the night before last year’s WrestleMania 30 as his legendary character, Razor Ramon. His speech was short and sweet, and he seemed to be in a very good place.
Since Hall’s induction, he has made several appearances on WWE television, along with his longtime friend, Kevin Nash. Hall’s last WWE appearance was at WrestleMania 31 this past March, where he appeared with Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan, as they reunited the NWO.
Over the weekend, it was announced that Hall was going to be a part of Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling, and, as of right now, he is still going to be a part of GFW.
It’s likely that the incident at this past weekend’s show in Asbury Park was an isolated incident, as it does seem that — for the most part — Hall has completely turned his life around, and he is no longer on the “pro wrestling death watch” list.
