Scott Hall recently appeared on Monday Night Mayhem. Here are some highlights from the interview.
His relationship with Jake “The Snake” Roberts and Diamond Dallas page prior to the both of them reaching out to him/moving into the “Accountability Crib” and what the character quality he enjoys the most about DDP: “I never knew Jake (Roberts) personally until the past few months. I’ve known Dally for years and years. We crossed paths in Florida Championship Wrestling before either of us had any success. We have an honest and open relationship, which is what I really like about Dally.”
How Scott Hall has changed from the airing of the “E:60” piece on ESPN in 2011 to the airing of the “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” piece on HBO several weeks ago and what he has learned about himself and about life during these past two years: “I’ve been saying the same thing. I really don’t know what happened. If it was something that I could identify and give to people I would. I know it is working for me now.”
Why he has always resonated with the Rhodes family, his thoughts on Goldust’s WWE return, and what Dustin’s recent RAW showing says about the power of the “Rhodes Dynasty”: “I don’t stay in touch with Dustin (Rhodes) as much as I’d like. I’ve followed him, and I’m happy for him. He is doing great. For him to show up and rock it on RAW cements the fact that everybody in the Rhodes family can go. Dusty started me in the business, so I’ve always had a strong connection to them.”
Whether or not he believes that Cody being in the WWE is a foregone conclusion, based on the WWE’s history of recruiting and signing second/third-generation stars: “Who knows. Does Cody want to wrestle in the WWE? Of course he does. But he is intelligent enough to realize that he is a long way from being ready for that. Now his job is to train as a professional wrestler.”
