DDP Turns to Fans in an Effort to Help Save Scott Hall

Christopher OlmsteadSenior Analyst IIIMarch 9, 2013


As cliche as it may sound, life truly is full if its ups and downs. Scott Hall is a man that has experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Thanks to his friend Diamond Dallas Page, Hall is now on the comeback trail. Page cannot do this alone though. In a moving and touching video, Page has reached out to pro wrestling and Hall fans for their support and donations.

According to the We Can Rebuild Him website, Hall has been sober for 40+ days. In the video Hall reflects on how he is feeling "peaceful." Hall also comments on how this is the longest that he has been clean while not being in any facilities. According to the website, Hall has been in rehab on 11 different occasions.

The goal of the website is to raise $80,000. The site states that 100% of funds raised will be used for the benefit of Scott Hall's process of recovery and physical rehabilitation. Some of the things the money will go towards are a hip replacement, dental work and Hall's ongoing rehabilitation.

The website also offers various donation packages, each with a special "perk" for your contribution. Some of the perks include signed photos, tee shirts, personal phone calls, personal Skype chats and a free copy of the comeback movie. The top donation level ($3,500) will earn you a night in Page's house where you can meet Hall and Jake Roberts.

This entire campaign is extremely touching. When Page speaks about Hall you can just see the emotion pouring out of him. Everybody likes a comeback story and that is exactly what this is. If Hall is able to regain some sort of semblance in his life because of this, well that would be awe inspiring. 

The video and website also make mention of Jake Roberts. Apparently Roberts is also living with Page while trying to get his life back on the right track. Like Page, I might just be an eternal optimist but I truly believe that with the right support this could work for both men.

Wouldn't it be something to see Hall or Roberts on stage, being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in the near future?
