Another One Gone Too Soon
On Monday, March 14, 2022, as the world celebrated Pi Day, Scott Hall lay in a hospital bed on life support. His long time friend and traveling partner Kevin Nash posted on Instagram that life support would be removed once family had gathered there. Soon after, the bad guy left this life.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I have seen so many great matches involving Scott Hall both as himself and Razor Ramon, but I mourn him not as the wrestler but the man who was a great advocate for mental health. World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) documented his mental health struggles in the form of substance abuse in Living On A Razor’s Edge The Scott Hall Story, which can be seen on NBC’s Peacock.
Jake “The Snake” Roberts was the one to get Scott started on his road to recovery somewhat ironically, but luckily for fans of both men. It was thanks to Diamond Dallas Page, aka DDP, and fans that they both managed to get sober for good for the most part.
DDP couldn’t ask for better testimony for his DDP Yoga. At the same time, it is too soon for Scott to be gone after all that he overcame.
If you’ve ever been through a traumatic event seek help, even if you think you don’t need it. Just sit down with a counselor and be open and honest with them. That is one thing Scott would want, I’m sure. Scott was right in his WWE Hall Of Fame Speech: “Bad times don’t last but bad guys do.”
I will correct him, though, and say only the bad guys that are really good guys last. Since even after they leave they remain in our memories and hearts.
