• WWF Attitude Era Personality Detained By Police & Hospitalized After He Threatened To Kill Himself
As we noted before, WWF Attitude Era personality Jason Sensation (the man who portrayed Owen Hart in DX mocking The Nation segments) posted a tweet where he threatened to kill himself while being in attendance for this week’s RAW.
Below is what he posted on Twitter:
“I got my gun through security & will shoot myself in the head & kill myself during tonight’s #RAW in Toronto. Don’t ya dare miss it!!!” Thanks for the memories WWE.”
Former WWF writer Vince Russo reached out to Jason and Jason confirmed it to him that it was just a joke and that he wasn’t even in attendance for this week’s RAW.
Toronto Police reached out to him and issued the following statement to POSTWrestling:
“We are with Jason Sensation now, he was never at the Scotiabank Arena, all is in order.”
Update on the Jason Sensation story from tonight:
We have been contacted by a person that works inside the Scotiabank Arena, they were told by their manager that the threat "had been dealt with" during the Rollins vs. Owens match and police presence is said to have died down.

Jason noted that he was detained by police and hospitalized due to this incident:
“I’ve been detained by Police & forced to stay in the Hospital after sending out that awful, thoughtless tweet last night. I honestly wasn’t thinking strait. I am sincerely sorry & apologize to everyone & anyone this affected, especially my loved ones, WWE & Toronto Police.”
