Well, yesterday I listened in on the online radio show In Your Head which featured special guest Scott Hall.
Let me preface my comments here by saying I'm one of the biggest Scott Hall fans there are, and have been since his debut as Razor Ramon.
So, Scott comes on and basically spends most of the time plugging 2 things:
- His "new" website (which appears to have been built in 1997, complete with "Frames or No Frames" intro page) theoutsiderscotthall.com
- Sid Vicious, the man who would go over as a babyface over anyone in WWE today, according to Hall
So, yeah. Lost a lot of respect for Hall. I had lost a lot already, of course, with all of his problems and no-shows and what have you over the years, but the man has been dealing with addictions and I understand it's a hard road. Otherwise, I've just been trying to stick with Hall as a fan of his ring work.
Sooo, Scott starts talking about how he wants to be a commentator in WWE, and how it might happen someday. No Scott, it won't. And how he and Sid might go back to the WWE where Sid will beat Triple H in the main event of Wrestlemania for the title. No, that will never happen either, Scott. And he talks about how he and Sid and maybe the Kliq will/could get together to form their own promotion to compete with WWE and TNA. Nope, won't happen.
Then I see videos of him wrestling for the Insane Clown Posse and Justin Credible in recent months. Wow. How can you, Scott Hall, as a wrestler watch that video, and compare it even to your earliest WCW work as the Diamond Stud and think it's acceptable? How can you think that your antiquated views of the industry will fit in anywhere, let alone in WWE?
I'm sure most of you agree with me, but I just needed to get that out of my system. I'll always enjoy Hall for what he did in WWE and WCW/nWo, but it's just sad to see him loose so much touch with the world.
Not everyone can have a lights out finisher. He has 4 potential finishers though. Who else has that many? With the establishment of the sharpshooter as a secondary finisher Benoit has three(headbutt, crossface...).
