Just a heads up to check out Scott Hall on Cabana’s Art of Wrestling podcast.
He’s totally lucid and his REMARKABLE knowledge of the business (particularly given what he’s done to himself over the last decade and a half) is pretty amazing. Given his basic understanding of how wrestling “works” and a history that dates back to Florida when Dusty was booking(!) and the AWA, it’s a damned shame he hasn’t been working for the E for the past ten years on the creative staff. If there’s any way he can keep himself together he’d still be a fantastic add for them.
Oh, there’s no denying that he’s got a brilliant mind for the business. But just look at the trouble that someone like Michael Hayes has caused in his tenure and he doesn’t even have a quarter of Hall’s demons. Even if Hall was sober it would be too big of a gamble for a family friendly company like WWE to take now.
