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 RAW last month.
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 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 straight. I am sincerely sorry & apologize to everyone & anyone this affected, especially my loved ones, WWE & Toronto Police.”
During a recent interview with Hannibal TV, Jason Sensation talked about the events that led to him joking about committing suicide on RAW.
Below is what he said:
“Yeah, I got some issues and I got some issues with wrestling and I got some issues on how my career went. I guess I am very hurt about how my career went in WWE and the way it ended and some of the things that happened to me. I stuck through to try to still make a career out of it and the fact that I didn’t make a career out of it in WWE — it really hurt me. Years went by in hindsight and it was hard on me. Hey let’s do this and that. It’s so hard to dive into. I have some emotional issues when it comes to wrestling.
They were in town and I was just in an emotional state. I was actually here, visiting my dad at my sister’s place and I had a few drinks with my younger sister. Sometimes we have a few drinks together. So I had a few drinks and I passed out and woke up and I was like, “oh great, well my dad was getting — he loves wrestling so much.” He was getting ready to watch RAW and he’s like, RAW’s in Toronto.” I went into my depressive state in that moment.
I was thinking whoever I’m in contact with in the company didn’t call and I was thinking whoever my friends are out of the company. This is very selfish thinking, mind you. Like I’m embarrassed to admit where my mind was at but I was in a very selfish state. I woke up, I was hot drunk and I looked at my phone and was like, “no one messaged me.” None of my friends that are going to the show messaged me. No one from the show messaged me. I’ve had some history with the company where I’ve sent out a whole bunch of shit online. That’s definitely burned my bridges and blackballed me from the company forever and that was years ago.
And every now and again I say something stupid again because I am hurting and I am trying to just get a reaction out of them. Like, “do you even notice me?” It’s from a place of being hurt and never getting even a mention back again. Triple H will sign the Wellness Program letter to me. He’ll sign it personally and he’ll send it to me but I can’t get a tweet back or a message back online. I feel like I’ve been so blacked out from them that I can never even get their attention.
So for years I’ve been sending out stupid shit like that for years but this was something that I didn’t even think through. I didn’t realize that there has been a couple of shootings. The officer that had to detain me and handcuff me explained to me about the shootings in Florida and the Game-Day shooting. I was like, “oh my gosh, I didn’t even know this was going on.” I’ve been so out of the loop but I woke up out of this stupid space. I felt like nobody noticed me.
I went back to sleep and my sister came running downstairs like, “Jason, you don’t understand what you’ve done.” I was like, it’s okay, don’t worry sis. I’ll just deactivate my Twitter.” I was half drunk and I don’t even know what I said and I deactivated my Twitter without even realizing what I said. The next person down the stairs was an officer. After they detained me, they were showing me that I was on TMZ.”
