Earlier this week, we reported that Jets linebacker Bart Scott engages in “wrestling moves and simulated violence” during his guest appearance on TNA’s iMPACT!. Scott’s agent denied emphatically that Bart Scott did anything physical.
“He was not wrestling!” Lewis told ESPNNewYork.com via e-mail. “He was only the bodyguard for some small, helpless guy named Hulk Hogan. It was nothing more than an appearance.”
Roughly 20 minutes into the two-hour show, Scott confronts another wrestler in an area outside the dressing rooms, and they end up on the concrete, rolling around and pretending to punch each other. Then, after making like his Simpson namesake in the locker area and saying to Kurt Angle, “Who the hell is this guy?”, Scott confronts Angle in the ring, shoving and pretending to punch him, before being placed in an ankle lock by Angle.
Scott ends his cameo by leaving the ring area with assistance and limping badly — as in not convincingly.
So Lewis was either not telling the truth, or Scott didn’t tell the truth to him. Either way, Scott got physical, and in so doing potentially violated his contract with the Jets.
