Man what an awesome video, hopefully this all ends with DDP inducting both of them into the HOF next year after they've been clean for a year.

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.
No question, esp. given Hall's past, we should all be cautious here, but c'mon...

...that's just so damn cool to see.

It's sort of heartbreaking to hear Hall say "What do you do when people stop chanting your name?" even though it's a common complaint of famous people.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

For those who didn't read it, Kevin Nash wrote this blog about Scott Hall a couple of years ago: http://kevinnash.tumblr.com/post/479...-just-like-you

Hall having PTSD is something that I'm sure amplifies the effect of "what do you do when people stop chanting your name?" From the sound of it, wrestling and the road life were just welcome distractions from bigger demons before that.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

I actually paid a visit to the Accountability Crib this past weekend. DDP put on a workshop for DDP Yoga members at a nearby community center -- there were only 13 participants. I've been doing the program since December and absolutely love it.

We went back to his house for dinner and tips on how to eat gluten and dairy free. Scott and Jake went out for a bit while we were eating, but came back later. The whole experience was incredible. Only a few of us were wrestling fans. Jake was just beaming with happiness. It was awesome hearing Scott tell stories. Both Scott and Jake were incredibly humble and nice. DDP is just a genuinely good guy.

Very very cool.

For as much **** jake and scott had in their lives, the stories they must have got to be incredible.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

Oh yeah -- Scott is in need of hip surgery (hence the wheelchair and cane). I think I heard DDP say they are setting up an Indiegogo site (similar to Jake's) for this.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

This whole Jake The Snake/ Scott Hall Accountability Crib stuff is pretty much my favourite thing going on atm. I check youtube couple of times a day to see if there is a new video.

Surely HHH or Nash can cough up the money instantly? He has shown enough legit progress that if they promised him a WM moment he would stay straight.

Undoubtedly but with people in Hall's situation, you have to be very careful how quickly and heavily you reintroduce that part of his life. Let him get comfortable just living a "normal" life and getting healthy (you can see he obviously has a long way to go) and then maybe talk about letting him come out at WM down the road.

Re: DDP doing some great things.

It will take a lot more than a couple weeks of being sober before he proves he's ready for anything to do with the WWE. He's been a messy cluster **** for too long to trust him.

Hopefully Jake and Hall can get their lives together. DDP can only do so much, you gotta wanna do it yourself.

He's quit drinking more than enough times. Sadly, Scott has had a ton of periods of being sober over the past 15 years only to relapse. The biggest mountain for him is the long term.

He never quit drinking. He only took some time off from it.

The best thing he could do right now is to actually quit.

Sad to see what a bad shape Hall is in, really hope DDP is successful with him.
