Ex-WWE PC Trainer Deletes Twitter Following Divisive Intergender Wrestling Comments
Former WWE Superstar and Performance Center trainer Scotty 2 Hotty has left Twitter after some controversial comments.
During his wrestling career, Scotty 2 Hotty was first known as “Too Hot” Scott Taylor that would be part of a tag team called Too Much with Brian Christopher. After the two men had success as a team, their name was changed to Too Cool with Taylor’s name changed to Scotty 2 Hotty while Christopher became Grandmaster Sexay.
Scotty 2 Hotty worked for WWE for a full decade from 1997 to 2007. He was a two-time Tag Team Champion, once with Brian Christopher (as Grand Master Sexay) and once with Rikishi along with one reign as the Light Heavyweight Champion. Scotty also worked for WWE as a trainer/coach in NXT from 2016 to 2021 before asking for his release from the company in order to pursue other interests.
On Twitter, Scotty was using his real name @ScottGarland to promote his independent wrestling promotions, appearances and other things in his life. However, he angered a lot of people when he tweeted this.
“Dear promoters. I DO NOT ‘fight’ women. I’m 49 & have a 20 year old daughter. ‘Hurting’ women isn’t appealing to me. I understand that there are men that do it these days. It’s just not my thing. If that makes me old or out of touch, I’ll take it. Please stop trying to book it.”
Scotty followed that up by mentioning that he did wrestle women like WWE Hall of Famer Chyna and Linda Miles, but he noted it was a different time.
“Also, before my matches from 20+ years ago with Linda Miles, Chyna, or any other women are brought up, I know what I did. It was a different time, a different place, & I wasn’t a father to a 20 yr old daughter.”
Those comments from Scotty led to a lot of heated reactions from people on Twitter. It would lead to Scotty deleting his Twitter account, at least temporarily. Twitter has a feature that allows somebody to deactivate their account and they can reactivate it in the future, so that could be something that Scotty does.
As a babyface wrestler for most of his WWE run, Scotty 2 Hotty was well-known for doing “The Worm” dance move with the crowd spelling it out W-O-R-M before he would deliver a chop. They were also known for doing a post-match dance routine, oftentimes with their ally Rikishi.
