9/12/2016 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ Sports has obtained footage of WWE superstar Bo Dallas being arrested at an airport in Texas ... moments after he was booted from his flight to Mexico for drunkenly yelling at the flight crew. 

In the video, taken on August 26th, you see Bo can barely stand up straight and is slurring his words when approached by security at Dallas Fort Worth airport. 

According to the police report, first obtained by, Bo told the cops he had been drinking earlier in the day -- and when asked how much he replied, "I'm not really planning on driving tonight."

Bo was arrested for public intoxication -- but cops noted he was extremely cooperative. 

Bo told cops he was a wrestler for WWE -- and officers noted he's a "strong boy."

WWE Big Show Will Be Back on the Ropes

9/9/2016 12:14 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Big Show will continue to put on a show that includes rope climbing ... sources connected with the WWE tell TMZ.

John Cena averted serious injury during a match in Manila Friday when the rope on which Big Show was standing snapped, sending him tumbling to the mat. Cena rolled to avoid impact.

We contacted WWE sources to find out if Big Show will continue standing on the ring ropes. If his 440 pound weight was simply too much, the WWE could face serious liability if it happened again and someone were injured.

We're told the accident was "a fluke" and the rope was simply defective. Our sources say the ropes are Big Show-worthy and the wrestler will go into the ring in future matches undeterred.

Breaking News

0909-alberto-del-rio-wwe-02WWE superstar Alberto Del Rio -- a former heavyweight champion -- was released by WWE Friday ... less than one month after a wellness policy violation.

Del Rio and his real-life girlfriend, Paige, were each hit with a 30 day suspension last month for violating the WWE's talent wellness policy.

There are rumblings that Paige will leave WWE as well -- but so far, nothing's been confirmed.

Scott Hall Booted From Airport Bar For Calling Bartender a Bitch

9/6/2016 10:34 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Pro wrestler Scott Hall was disqualified from a T.G.I. Friday's for being drunk, rowdy and disrespectful to the bartender.

A witness tells us Hall was at the Friday's in the Atlanta airport on Saturday ... drinking Coors Lights and tequila shots. He allegedly hit on the bartender and called her a bitch, and that's when trouble started brewing with the bartender's father ... who was at the bar. 

We're told Hall didn't believe the guy was really her dad, and a manager stepped in and asked him to leave -- when he refused, someone called cops.

Law enforcement sources tell us officers responded to the intoxicated person call. They recognized Hall as his former wrestling alter ego, Razor Ramon ... shook his hand and calmed the situation. You can see in the video though, Scott didn't want to give up his beer easily.

We're told Scott left without further incident and no police report was filed.

Hall has a history with booze and drug abuse, but has said he's been sober recently. We've reached out to his rep.

WWE superstar Rusev wasn't picture perfect with a black eye ... but that didn't stop him and Lana from saying "I do" again -- this time in Rusev's home country of Bulgaria.

You'll recall Lana and Rusev planned 2 weddings -- a romantic ceremony in Malibu back in July and now over the weekend. They went all out ... Lana's dress was a whopping $75k. We're told the lace alone was a cool $15k.

Check out the pics .... it was a traditional Bulgarian wedding that started at a Greek Orthodox Church followed by a reception with all the fun traditions -- including the groom showing up to the bride's house and paying her sister, mom and bridesmaids for his bride.

It's unclear how much Rusev paid ... but we're betting Lana's worth it.

Next stop ... east Africa and Dubai for their honeymoon.

It's huge news considering Goldberg HATED Vince McMahon when he left WWE back in 2004 -- and repeatedly vowed to never work for the company ever again.  

But Goldberg recently struck a deal to appear in the WWE 2K17 video game -- and sources tell us the two sides are now talking about expanding their working relationship. 

In fact, when we shot Goldberg out last week ... we noticed that his anti-WWE stance has softened in a big way ... and said he would even entertain an offer if company officials wanted to make a deal. 

"Life's too short to dwell upon past differences," Goldberg told us ... who also pointed out that he's 49 years old and the "clock's ticking."

One plugged in source tells us Goldberg's people have been in touch with the WWE about a return and "the wheels are in motion."

We reached out to Goldberg's rep, Uncle Louie, but he had no comment.
