Scott Hall, who has a long history of drug and alcohol abuse, has been arrested for the fourth time following a recent domestic battery charge. The good news is that if he gets his card punched by the Seminole County Jail one more time, he gets a free pancake at IHOP.
“Wrestling legend Scott Hall was arrested Friday after allegedly choking out his girlfriend in a drunken fit of rage -- this according to the arrest report, obtained by TMZ.
According to the report, cops were called to Scott's Florida home over a domestic disturbance in progress around 5pm. When they arrived, Scott's GF Lisa Howell informed police he had attacked her.
According to Lisa, Scott had been drinking for days and the two had gotten into some kind of argument. Lisa says she got into her car, and in a blind rage, Scott grabbed her by the throat and tried to pull her out of the driver's seat.
According to the report, police confronted Scott -- who appeared heavily intoxicated with an "unknown white secretion flowing from both sides of his mouth" -- but he denied ever getting violent.
Police observed several signs of physical injury on Lisa -- including red marks around her neck -- so they placed Scott under arrest for domestic battery.
Scott -- billed at 6'7" and 287 pounds -- required TWO sets of handcuffs.
But his problems didn't end there -- according to the report, Scott was so drunk ... the jail refused to book him ... so the arresting officer had to drag him to a nearby hospital to get medical clearance.
The physicians gave their thumbs up and Scott was brought back to the correctional facility, where he was finally booked on the domestic violence charge.
Lisa has refused to press charges. So far, it's unclear if the case will move forward.”
Look, I know it’s easy to pity Scott Hall, but this man has been so incredibly reckless with his life that he has caused irreparable damage to his career and the his family. Yes it’s sad, but this is getting old. I understand that the man has demons and probably still has PTSD from killing a guy in the 80’s, but this is ridiculous. I’m not going to waste any more empathy on a guy that clearly has zero interest in helping himself. Then again maybe he’s pulling a Jim Lahey and is just filling up liquor bottles with ice tea, and this is some elaborate Kaufmanesque prank on our legal system. Come to think of it, that would be a pretty great hoax. I’m still reasonably sure he’s just a woman choking drunk, but then again, he could be a comedic genius. I guess only time will tell.

The beer that Chris Jericho used to dump on CM Punk’s straight-edge head on Raw was National Bohemian, a brew local to Baltimore MD. So not only is he a wretched human being that attacks a man’s family for their past and is actively trying to get someone who has a genetic predisposition to alcohol dependence to start drinking, he’s a f**king hipster drinker as well. Wow, I didn’t think of Jericho as a true heel until this very moment. (NoDq)
AJ Lee is still kayfabe recovering from her breakup with Daniel Bryan. She wrote on Twitter Monday night; “Smackdown tomorrow. Perhaps I will put down this tub of mint chocolate chip ice cream & Alanis Morrissette cd, and do something productive.” Not to sound crass, but if I were in kayfabe Daniel Bryan’s position and had AJ in the palm of my hand, I would never let her go. Seriously, she when she would walk into the house I’d tackle her like Hobbes would Calvin, only it would involve way more dry humping. Seriously, the only way you’d get me off of her would be with a hose and shock paddles. (All Wrestling)
Speaking of Smackdown, I know I missed last week (personal issue, really nasty, don’t want to get into it) but this week’s Super Smacking Of Super Smackdown will be up later today.

TNA requested that WWE send them a Superstar to appear on one of their DVD’s in exchange for allowing Ric Flair to appear at the 2012 WWE Hall of Fame ceremony, and talk is that it’s someone that has history with Sting, Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair. I know this means they are probably going to send someone like Mick Foley, but how hilarious would it be if they just shipped down a Fed Ex crate and inside was just Yoshi Tatsu wearing a dirty red flannel and talking to a sock puppet?
