A comedy roast was held in Monroe, New Jersey last night in honor of WWE Hall of Famer Iron Sheik. Scott Hall was in attendance at the event, and lost control following a tasteless joke regarding Owen Hart made by a comedian.
Jimmy Graham, a comedian who has wrestled in the past, made a remark to Bill Apter. He said, “Bill Apter, you’re deader than Owen Hart.”
Hall, who had been drinking heavily by this point in the evening, charged the banquet table to go after Graham. Hall threw some punches in Graham’s direction and grabbed the mic from him as well, telling him how he was disrespecting Owen Hart.
Security, police and former pro wrestler Jim Powers had to restrain Hall and take him out of the building. He was taken to his hotel room. No arrests were made.
You can see video of the aftermath following the altercation at the following link. In another video, Hall begins to get into with King Kong Bundy, telling Hall to let it go.
