Happy ending within
sight for Scott Hall and family
By Mike Mooneyham
Sunday, May 16, 1999
Pro wrestling, with
its phenomenal popularity and controversial characters, has
become fertile fodder
for the likes of trash tabloids and other similar sources
that specialize in
embellishing what's wrong in society today.
Read all about Sable's
heartbreak over her fhusband's drunk driving accident
that claimed his and
three others' lives (the accident occurred nine years ago
and involved her first
husband, not present spouse Marc Mero). Learn the sordid
details concerning the
nasty divorce between superstar "Stone Cold" Steve Austin
and wife Jeannie (the
two parted ways amicably and without much fanfare). You
get the picture.
I guess one can say
pro wrestling has arrived. Regrettably its presence on
shelves at the
supermarket checkout counter has validated its popularity
Every once in a while,
though, a bright spot emerges. Someone digs his way out
of a hole. These
aren't exactly the kind of sensationalistic stories you'll
on the covers of
tabloids. But they exist.
Just a few months ago
Scott Hall was written off by many as "the next Brian
Pillman waiting to
happen." His own wife didn't give him much of a chance the
way he was going, but
she never gave up hope. If it took everything she had, she
wouldn't allow it to
happen. Even though she forced the issue with a divorce
last year, she never
stopped caring and refused to relent.
Dana Hall's mission
was far from easy and, in the opinion of many, not even
recoiled at the image of her children watching their
police mug shot aired
on the local television news. Report after report of
totaling car after car, and even the company he worked for
real-life character on television stacked the odds clearly
favor of failure and
invitable tragedy. But, as far as the Halls are concerned,
history. The story isn't over, but the picture is much
now. A happy ending is
within sight. Scott Hall continues to make strides in
putting his personal
and family life back together.
Hall, who so far has
taken most of this year off not only to deal with
substance abuse problems, but also to patch up his
with his wife (the two
remarried earlier this year) and spend time with his two
children, had been
scheduled to return to WCW as part of a Horsemen angle and
was slated to do a
run-in during the Ric Flair-Roddy Piper match at Slamboree.
Feeling he needed more
time at home with his family, Hall wisely asked for an
months off. When he returns, it will be in a limited
television and pay-per-views. Recent reports that circulated
separation between the
Halls were unfounded, perhaps stemming from the fact
Scott had spent some
time in his nearby home (the Halls have three residences)
arrangements to move back in with his family. No one expects
road to be without a
few bumps and curves along the way. its hard to think
about the possibility
of abandoning a million-and-a-half-dollar yearly salary.
The glare of the
spotlight can be as addictive as the strongest drug known to
Sometimes there's a

prayers remain with Brian Hildebrand (WCW ref Mark Curtis),

his own in his fight against stomach cancer. Brian, whose
weight had dropped to

him to be fed intravenously around the clock, and his
weight has pushed back
up to nearly 100 pounds.

Ok.. first of all..
HAS ABSOLUTELY NO BUILD. Hes
fat. Itlooks like
hes been drinking a 12
pack of beer after every match. His gut hangsover his
belt worse than Flair.
His mic skills are most definately not"above-average"
as you stated. If
anything just simply average. Bradshaw does deservea push,
as i think he is a
very hard worker. But he needs a better gimmick.And thats
exactly why Kane has
held so many belts. Not because his mike skills suck, but
because THE FANS LIKE
HIM. Supply and demand. Simple as that.
