Santino Marella interviewed with Joshua Modaberi of Wrestling 101, and explained the OVW incident between him and Jim Cornette in quite a bit of detail. Santino discussed other topics as well, but said the following about the confrontation with Cornette:

"It was just a misunderstanding, I was in the audience watching with my daughter and I was sitting in the area where the OVW students sit. I had only been there for a few weeks and didn't know anything about wrestling, The Boogeyman was trying to get out of an exit which was behind me and I had no idea the exit was behind me because he was going out of an emergency exit.

"I didn't move out of the way and was enjoying the show as an audience member, so the fact that I didn't move out of the way and play along showing I was terrified of this monster tipped Jim over the edge. He was already upset because The Boogeyman had a bit of a costume malfunction and the fact that I didn't jump out of the way kind of made him snap and he gave me a couple of slaps backstage.

"I just told myself to keep cool because I was a Canadian in the United States and had just got there and wanted to study. I thought to myself if I retaliated in any way it won't be good, first of all he was a stable old guy, it wouldn't of been a fight but that's not the point, you just shouldn't be laying hands on anybody."

Scott Hall Takes Shot at Goldberg

Scott Hall has become very active on his Twitter account in recent months, promoting his upcoming appearances, answering fan questions, etc. He even called it his "journal" today. Earlier today, a fan asked Scott Hall what he is reminded of when he thinks/reads "Goldberg! Goldberg!". Short and sweet, Hall responded with "#Goldmark". 

It's no secret that Hall and Goldberg didn't/don't like each other. Goldberg called Hall "unprofessional" during an interview and Hall always thought Goldberg took his gimmick too serious.
