Stephanie McMahon: We’ve Spent Over 100k Helping Scott Hall
ESPN’s will be doing a special on Scott Hall on Wednesday’s E:60, and have published an article about Hall. Stephanie McMahon, World Wrestling Entertainment’s executive vice president of creative development and operations, told ESPN that WWE has sent Hall to rehab multiple times and spent “in the six figures” on efforts to help him get sober.
“It’s the most amount of money we’ve spent on anyone,” she said. “I just want Scott to get help and to decide for himself that he needs help. It makes me sad. I don’t want anybody to pass away prematurely or otherwise really. Scott was an incredibly talented performer, larger than life, charismatic. He’s a father, he’s a friend. I’m sure he means a lot to a lot of people and it would be a shame for him to pass away.”

Regarding Hall’s current status, Kevin Nash recently appeared on Live Audio Wrestling and said that The Bad Guy is currently back in rehab once agin. Nash has previously said that Hall’s continous drinking stems from post-traumatic stress for events that happened to him prior to wrestling.
