Dark Side Of The Ring Makers Want An Episode On Scott Hall

Scott Hall

For three seasons, VICE’s Dark Side of the Ring has shone a light on underbelly of the wrestling world, delving into such topics such as the murder of Bruiser Brody, the life of Dynamite Kid, and the infamous Plane Ride From Hell. The most recent episode of the show aired in October of 2021, covering Vince McMahon’s steroid trial in the mid 1990’s.

Following the third season, there was uncertainty as to whether or not the show would be renewed, but a January report revealed that the fourth season was in production at long last and would include the following topics:

  • Abdullah the Butcher
  • Mike Awesome
  • Bam Bam Bigelow

Speaking on the latest episode of Kliq This, Kevin Nash revealed that Dark Side of the Ring is interested in doing an episode on Scott Hall, something Nash heavily supports as he believes their format would allow for honesty about who Hall was prior to his passing in 2022. Hall’s son Cody and fellow nWo member Sean Waltman are also to be involved according to Nash.

“Dark Side of the Ring wants to do something and they want to involve me and they want to involve Sean Waltman. Cody (Hall) is going to be involved. What we want to do is to just tell people who Scott really fu**ing was. I just don’t think that the A&E perspective is ever going to cover the post-traumatic stress of Scott and the shooting that happened at the Dollhouse on Orange Avenue.”

“I’m Not Going To Heaven” – Scott Hall Prior To His Passing In 2022

The incident Nash referred to happened in 1983, when after wrestling a gun away from a man outside a club in Orlando, FL, Hall was charged with second-degree murder for shooting the man in the head, something Hall claimed was in self defense. The charges were dropped because of a lack of evidence, but the incident stuck with Hall for the rest of his life. Continuing, Nash recalled conversations with his friend about the troubling time, saying Hall believed he would be punished for eternity for killing a man.

“There’s a reason why so many of our fu**ing warriors come back from combat and they take their lives because they’ve taken a life. Scott’s thing was always, because he was so highly religious, that Scott would say, ‘But you don’t understand man. I’m not going to go to heaven. I’ve broken one of the ten commandments, Thou shall not kill. I’ve killed. I’m not going to go to heaven. My soul will be in limbo.’

“I’m like, ‘No man. That’s not how it works. You can ask for forgiveness of your sins. If you’re going to play the game, you can’t read half the box. You can’t read half the box top. You have to read the whole fu**ing thing.’”

Nash also spoke about Scott Hall having control inside a wrestling ring even when things in his personal life were spiraling.

“That is one thing Scott would always say is that when he was in the ring, he would say like, he loved to work. There were days that I would leave my energy, I mean, I loved to work out, so I would train my back, or legs, or something like that and I wouldn’t have much left for the fu**ing ring that night.

:Scott would be like, ‘That’s fu**ing bullsh*t man.’ Scott would always say, ‘In that ring, I’m in charge of fu**ing everything. Outside the ring, I’m not in charge of anything. That’s when I lose the reins of my life is when I go outside those ropes. In these ropes, I’m a maestro’, and he knew it.”

Scott Hall was a two-time WWE Hall of Famer. He was first inducted as his WWE alter ego Razor Ramon as part of the class of 2014, and he was later inducted alongside Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, and Sean Waltman as the nWo in 2019. He sadly passed away in March of 2022.
