Chris Benoit Urged 2 Cold Scorpio Not To Kill Road Warrior Hawk

Chris Benoit urged 2 Cold Scorpio not to kill Road Warrior Hawk during the WCW's infamous Collision in Korea event.

In 1995, wrestlers travelled to Pyongyang, North Korea, for two nights of bouts, but things nearly turned really nasty outside of the ring.

2 Cold Scorpio - real name Charles Scaggs - spilled the beans in docuseries Dark Side Of The Ring, in which he opened up about the escalating rivalry he shared with Hawk.


After fisticuffs on the bus and a subsequent fight, 2 Cold Scorpio decided he would take conclusive action against Hawk, who died of a heart attack in 2003, aged 46.

"Now, I'm thinking, street smarts. I'ma get him, I'ma hurt him," Scaggs recalled, as per Metro.

"So, we had to go to that special state dinner, that's where they had the stainless steal chopsticks. So I take one of the stainless steel chopsticks, eat with it, drop one, pick it up, slip it into my pocket. Grab another one, did the same thing, dropped it, slid it into my pocket.

"Me and Chris had to share a room, Chris Benoit. We're back in the room and Chris is sitting there looking at me, he's watching me.

"All of a sudden, I open up the windowsill and I pull out the chopsticks, the windowsill is all rough concrete, and I'm sharpening the stainless steel chopsticks on the window pane in to more of a point."

He continued: "Chris is like, 'What are you doing?' I said, 'I'm making a shiv.' He goes, 'What?' I say, 'Yeah I'm gonna stab that motherf***er.'

"Chris says, 'Don't do it man. You don't wanna do that man. If you kill Hawk here, you'll just be here for the rest of your life.'"


Benoit went on to kill his wife, his seven-year-old son and himself in 2007.

In a previous episode in the docuseries, it was revealed that Nick Gage died for seven minutes after a match. Read more about that here.
