"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."

Here is my thing. IN everyday conversation, maybe the line doesn't work. But, this was a ROAST. Don't show up to a Roast and then get offended when you hear some off the wall sh!t. Thats the nature of a roast: everything and anything is fair game. Scott Hall's a jackass for getting all riled up about it.

I was there and I took this Video that was seen uncensored at www.youtube.com/bigkuter TMZ JACKED ME!!!!!!! Nice Edit Job Though Guys! Ummm Hall Was semi Right, His opinion was heard but not at the right place or the right time. The joke was horrible, but he went to far and ruined the rest of the night with constant interuptions. At one point he actually had Jimmy Graham by the throat against the wall. He was a member of the audience that night not a performer. What kind of example dose that set? Point is how would he like if if somebody from the crowd hit the ring when he was cutting a promo and said something they didn't like. Think about it from that point of view.

His name is not Razor Ramon, it's Scott Hall and he had every right to be pissed. I was in the arena when Owen died and let me tell you, it was as gruesome and horrific as anything I have ever seen. Owen was a great guy, clean living, loyal, no skeletons in his closet, and to die the way he did is NOT fodder for jokes. Go, Scott, go! You don't laugh at the untimely death of a friend!

A comic must be pretty desperate trying to get a laugh out of wresters by making retarded and idiotic comments about their friend who died tragically through no fault of his own doing the work he loved. I'm glad Razor stood up for his friend... wish more of Owen Hart's so-called "friends" had done the same.

There's tasteless jokes and then there's a comic reaching desperately for a laugh.

Doggiestyle and Chaz-
At a roast, everything should be fair game regarding the person being roasted. No holds should be barred when it comes to cracking on Iron Sheik; say whatever you want about him. This was not a roast of Owen Hart, though.

Scott did what needed to be done. In the wrestling industry, there were many guys who fell a victim to their lifestyle. Mr. Perfect, Chris Benoit, among others, but Owen Hart was not one of those wrestlers. He truly was one of the good guys in the industry. I'm so glad Scott stood up for him. I would have destroyed that pathetic excuse for a human being who cracked the joke.
