We noted over the weekend that Al Haft, who has ties to the “I Believe In Wrestling” dojo that WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall works with, sent word that Hall may be done with Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling due to WWE. Here’s what Haft sent to us:
“There was some talk at Jersey Championship Wrestling that Scott Hall was pulling out of Global Force Wrestling due to the size they were becoming and not wanting to upset WWE especially after Hall’s WrestleMania appearance.”
It appears there may be more to the rumors of Hall working for WWE soon. This weekend I spoke with promoter Ricky Otazu, who put on the event in New Jersey that an intoxicated Hall was escorted out of earlier this month. Otazu says one of the reasons he was begging Hall to leave the event in New Jersey was because Hall had previously told them that he was going to work for WWE NXT in the coming weeks and they didn’t want him to jeopardize that.
Otazu added that Sean “X-Pac” Waltman and other people were pleading with Hall to leave the event in Jersey because any negative news could cost him his spot with WWE. Of course TMZ broke the story that weekend but we haven’t heard anything about heat from WWE yet.
