DDP doing some great things.

If you guys are already caught up with this, I apologize. Aside from his yoga video series, DDP is lending a helping hand to former friends in the wrestling business.

He has started an "accountability crib" in ATL, Georgia and his first project was Jake Roberts. *Spoiler Alert* Jake has been clean 60 days, has lost 50+ pounds and looks 15 years younger.

Here was the first clip months ago:
http://youtu.be/g97pMR6JeRg

And then the progression (I trusted and donated):
http://youtu.be/2lCEJ2quQTw

There are 4-5 in between these, you can see them in his channel.

The most recent call is now out to Scott Hall. Jake came to DDP, it's easier to help someone who wants help. We'll see if Scott steps up to the plate:
http://youtu.be/OTy7BNuQOg4

I have found all these videos awesome and even the ones not pertaining to the recovery of Jake. I just wanted to share this and be able to discuss it.

My favorite wrestlers had always been (limited to) Jake Roberts, Shawn Michaels, and Chris Jericho. No doubt that I'm starting to really appreciate DDP.

For those interested or skeptical of DDP Yoga, this is all you need. A story about Arthur. Awesome.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

That's really cool stuff. Given the horror stories you hear about ex-wrestlers sometimes it's great to see 1) one like DDP who's having a great post-wrestling life and 2) see a positive change in others.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

It's cool that DDP is doing all of this for his friends and that they're accepting his help.

I'll wait to see what happens to them +1yr after they "complete" the program before I give them any more credit.

This is such a cool thing if it actually works that I feel like I have to refrain from all the easy jokes.

"Really don't give a f*** what marks think, just want what's best for Scott.Talked To DDP tonight feel were all on the same page."

Re: DDP doing some great things.

Oh man, I wanted to post that. Oh well. Anywho, the 1st step to this long procedure to recover/redemption is always the important step.

Painful to see Hall looking that bad. Hopefully this is the breakthrough, because I don't know how many more falls he can afford to take.

This might be Scott Hall's last chance for recover. If DDP can help Jake the Snake (who was arguably the most f'ed up guy in wrestling history), he should help Scott Hall (probably the 2nd most f'ed up guy in wrestling history). If Hall really wants this and is committed 100%, then he can recover from his demons.

Yes it is but don't get too excited yet.

He's only been there a couple of days and obviously he'll be sober for the 1st few videos.

Like I said earlier in the thread, I'll wait until +1yr after he completes the program to see how he's doing since he's been in and out of rehab several times and can't stay sober.
