Fifteen years ago, Scott Hall was one of the premier stars in the world of professional wrestling. He was involved in one of the greatest matches of all time, the 1994 ladder match with Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania X. He later achieved his greatest success in World Championship Wrestling as one of the original members of the New World Order; a group that revolutionized pro wrestling in the late 90s.
Today, Hall is a shell of his former self and a tragic figure of wrestling history. On Wednesday, October 19, at 8 p.m., ESPN’s E:60 series will take a look at the downfall of a man who at one point was destined to end up as one of the legends of the game.
The following video is a preview of the broadcast. Is shows him at a small independent wrestling event unable to even walk into the ring on his own. The show will chronicle his longstanding struggle against his personal demons, and will feature commentary from those who’ve worked with him over the years (such as former WCW president Eric Bischoff). This is a must-see for wrestling fans and anyone who wants to know the harsh realities of what drugs and alcohol can do to a person.
