This type of mainstream piece on a current wrestler who is having major troubles as opposed to a wrestler that has passed away makes the show quite unique. It’s become apparent that everyone from Hall’s closest friends (such as Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman) to Hall’s own family have tried to help him. WWE has even paid for multiple stints in rehab for Hall, but there just doesn’t seem to be anything else anyone can do. It’s amazing to think that around a year and a half ago, Hall was in TNA and looked to be in shape and ready for one more run. Now he looks like an old man that can hardly get around. We also learn in the story that Hall’s son Cody (who looks to be at least 6″7) is trying to follow his father’s footsteps into the wrestling business, but the relationship still can’t be held together due to Hall’s substance abuse.
