Scott Hall sad story

hey guy IDK how many of you were wrestling fans back im the old day but i you are you have probably heard of a guy named Scott Hall aka Razor Ramone. In the mid 90's to very early 2000s i was a huge wrestling fan as a kid and Scott was one of the guys i would watch all the time.

Here is a story of his life and where he is now. Very disturbing and sad however take it as an example of how bad things can get if you go down the wrong path.

Scott is also one of my favourite wrestlers, and arguably the best guy who didn't get the top belt. Pro-wrestling is a damn tough industry, one day you could be at the top of the world, living the dream, the next you wake up in your trailer to wrestle at some highschool gym. Pretty sad.

I am working so I'll have to watch the video when I get home... but I can say I also thought Scott was one of the best of all time.

And it very true how tough pro wrestling is. It might be scripted, but I'll tell you what - When I was competing in MMA in the early 2000s, a friend of my family was putting together a pro wrestling one night only show to raise money for a children's hosptial in Tallahassee... he ask myself and a bunch of other guys from my gym to do it. It was brutal man! Exhausting, and it really hurts if things are done properly, and still hurts a little when they are!
Those guys are legit athletes/stunt men... and it is true... there are too many stories of them getting chewed up and spit out right after being on top of the world.

"I dont want to die, but i am not afraid to because whats left man. What do you do when they quit chanting your name?"

Very sad story. Absoutely loved that guy when I was growing up. Was one of the big stars when professional wrestling was actually good.

Yeah and it sounds like Scott is a good guy at heart but has some real demons he has to deal with.

I can't see the Vid but I saw a special about a week ago. He has went down hill bad. Like I don't know how he is still walking around bad. It showed him with his son at the end. Who is also wanting to be a Pro Wrassler. The kid is a giant like his dad.

Its sad when they die, yet somehow even sadder when you can see its a possibility, but they keep on going down that bad, tough road wishing they somehow get back on track. Its the prolonged suffering thing I guess. Sad to see it killing him while he's still living.

Technique-wise far better than his matches give him credit for, and he had some classics!
