"Razor" Ramon Flips Out Over Dead Wrestler Joke

10/13/2008 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former wrestling legend Razor Ramon went berserk over the weekend, shouting obscenities and attacking a comedian who cracked a joke about the WWE star's dead friend -- right in front of his face.

The chaos all went down at a "roast" of another former wrestler, The Iron Sheik, at an event in Monroe, NJ. Things turned ugly when comedian Jimmy Graham dropped this line, "After the Sheik and Hacksaw Jim Duggan got caught sniffing coke in the parking lot his career fell faster than Owen Hart."

FYI -- Owen Hart died in '99 after he fell from the rafters during a live stunt for a PPV wrestling event.

After the comment, Graham claims Razor Ramon rushed the stage, threw the podium, and grabbed the comic by the throat. The video picks up directly after the skirmish. Razor was restrained and quickly escorted to his hotel room without further incident.

UPDATE: The next day, Razor gave this video statement about the incident, in which he defends his actions and claims the comic is "lucky he didn't get his ass whipped."

Owen Hart died a horrific death performing a stunt. The guy left behind a wife and children. Making jokes about this is the lowest class of comedian. I don’t know how close this guy was to Owen but I know if someone cracked off about someone I cared about, I would have gone off as well. A lot of comedian thing they can say or do anything without any repercussions. This makes you want to question, which is the lowest level of humanity: Comedians, Lawyers or Paparazzi?

While I'm glad that he stood up to the guy for an inappropriate "joke", it is sad to see that he is back off the wagon again. He may just be the next one they find on the wrong end of a booze or drug death....though he has lasted this long, so who knows?!

Sometimes our attempts at humor are not very well thought out. He should have jsut kicked this "so called comedian's" ass.

Should have given him a whooping...unfortunately he wasn't in the best shape to talk or stand even, let alone smack the guy around for being a disrespectful prick. Get help Scott & come back to entertaining fans healthy!

Making fun of an entertainer that died while working is terrible. I wish a sober member of the audience had spoken up.

I thought the joke about owen was sick.I dont blame Scott at all.It may have been intended as a joke but anyone with common decency would have seen that it is something not to joke about.Owens death was in front of thousands of people,many of which thought it was part of the show,vince went on with the show and he left behind a wife and two kids.Exactly how and where is that funny or ok to use? Considering how many wrestlers claimed that they felt loss at owens death I am surprised that not more of them acted like Scott.But in my opinion that shows who was his real friends and what was lip service.I think the 'comedian' should have gotten worse.I know America isnt always big on humanity and sympathy but when did it become ok to joke about a wrestler who died working,through no fault of his own,was forced to do the stunt,and died as a result?This was not a death cased by a lifestyle of drugs,drinking or steriods.To a certain degree those wrestlers who die because of those reasons played a part in their own demise by their lifestyle.Owen did not.At the time I was horrified by fans who thought it was part of the show,now Im horrified that some thought it was 'just a joke' or that someone sticking up for owen was a 'retard'.Hats off to Scott Hall,the only one of owens friends who did react to a comment that can only be described as a 4 letter word starting with S and ending with T.

Good for Razor. America is tired of these disrespectful punks being rude, then hide behind "comedy" as a defense. The whole audience should've assisted Razor in chin-checking this mark. f*ck him. You NEVER disrespect the dead. Is that understood?
