Scott Hall calls out Chael Sonnen for stealing his line

Chael SonnenChael Sonnen is one of the best crap talkers in sports. The guy is a classic heel and totally embraces it. He makes his living off of it. He does it better than many others. He’s even turned his ability to talk like a madman into a nice broadcasting gig with FOX. But one thing Chael is not is original. Or at least he’s not always original.

Wrestling figure Scott Hall, who as Razor Ramon was one of the best heels in WWF history, recently called out Sonnen for stealing one of his lines.

Sonnen announced his retirement from MMA last week after failing a random drug test. He tweeted the following words of encouragement about his announcement:

Hall heard about Sonnen’s tweet and a week later had a delayed reaction:

What was that, Chael?

Scott Hall arrested for allegedly choking out girlfriend in drunken rage

The problems for Scott Hall continue. Hall reportedly was arrested Friday for allegedly attacking his girlfriend in a drunken rage.

TMZ obtained the police report and says cops were called to Hall’s Florida home. Hall’s girlfriend, Lisa Howell, apparently claimed Hall was drinking for days and the two got into an argument. Howell got into her car and was pulled out by Hall who grabbed her by her neck.

Police noticed red marks around Howell’s neck so they arrested Hall for domestic violence. He denied ever getting violent, but he was so drunk, the jail refused to book him until he got medical clearance from a hospital.

TMZ also says Hall, who is listed at 6’7″ and 287 pounds, required two sets of handcuffs.

Hall, who became famous for his career as Razor Ramon, had his troubled post-career life chronicled by E:60. We’re equally surprised he’s still alive and that he actually has a girlfriend.

Scott Hall and Son Cody Reportedly No Longer Speaking

Scott Hall and his son, Cody, reunited towards the end of the Hall’s captivating special on E:60. The special was apparently filmed in May, and Cody’s mother — Scott’s ex-wife — reportedly told TMZ that the reunion only lasted a month.

According to TMZ, Cody gave up on his dad due to “constant verbal abuse from Scott while he was binging” — and he soon moved back home with his mom.

Cody, who had only seen his father three times in three years prior to the May reunion, reportedly felt it was “too hard seeing his dad in that kind of state.”

TMZ says Cody has no current plans to continue wrestling.

Hall expressed regret over not being a better father. He had his opportunity to remedy that, but apparently he ruined it by continuing to drink and/or use drugs. It’s hardly a surprise coming from the man who admitted he doesn’t drive because he knows he’ll drive drunk.

During the E:60 show, Hall said his dream was for his son to become a pro wrestler. Looks like that won’t happen until Cody’s dream of seeing his dad sober is realized.

Scott Hall: Drugs and Alcohol Are Fun

The story of Scott Hall’s decline was chronicled in a recent edition of E:60. Hall was once one of the most recognizable figures in pro wrestling, working under the name Razor Ramon. Although his days as a prominent pro wrestler ended long ago, he has remained in the news because of his declining health and mental condition.

Seeing Hall tell his story on E:60 was truly sad. He explained that he came from a long line of red neck alcoholics. It was understood that Hall would fall, but his father only asked that when he fell, he fell forward. Hall talked about wanting to be a pro wrestler and how he realized he had the body and physical stature for the job. Then, he began taking steroids so that he’d attract women.

Hall’s biggest problem was his inability to separate his in-ring persona from his life away from the ring; he was consumed by his Razor Ramon image. Hall began abusing cocaine, alcohol, and prescription medications. He ended up divorced and hardly a factor in his children’s lives, all because he preferred the wrestling lifestyle to being with his family.

Hall talked about having seizures and heart problems. He now takes 11 different daily medications. He’s been to rehab 10 times, most of which was financed by the WWE. The once proud man says he doesn’t drive anymore because he knows he’ll drive drunk.

Now, he’s reconnected with his 20-year-old son, Cody, whom he had only seen three times in the previous three years. Scott is teaching Cody how to be a pro wrestler while his mother — Scott’s ex-wife — worries that he will become consumed with the potentially detrimental lifestyle.

Hall, who says he “thrives on misery,” miraculously is still living despite abusing his body for years.

“There’s got to be some reason that I’m here,” he reasons. “I should have been dead. I should have been dead 100 times.”
