The following is an excerpt from a new Miami Herald article on Scott Hall:
â€œI have been to about nine rehabs,â€ said Hall. â€œThey were high dollar and some of the best ones around. [WWE Chairman] Vince [McMahon] has picked up the tab the last couple of times. If you ever work or worked for WWE, if you ever need help, he will give it to you. He is really cool. Thank Vince, his wife Linda, [daughter] Stephanie, [son] Shane and Paul [Levesque/Triple H]. Thank you for helping me. Itâ€™s hard to ask for help. Itâ€™s even harder to accept it, when people offer it.
Hall spent six weeks there before and is ready to return for the full duration.
â€œThis was the first real place that wasnâ€™t like a 12-step deal,â€ Hall said. â€œItâ€™s not like, â€˜Okay. Donâ€™t drink. Go to the meetings and call your sponsors.â€™ Gee I never would have thought of that. How much do I owe you?â€™
â€œThis place is really cool because itâ€™s a psychiatric hospital. A lot the people there donâ€™t have drug and alcohol stuff. Mental illness is real, and I got them. I donâ€™t know if itâ€™s the multiple concussions or the lifestyle choicesâ€¦Iâ€™m going to a place where they can help me.â€
The stay at the clinic will provide Hall the opportunity to delve into his tumultuous past.
â€œIf I had to do everything over again, except for hurting a few peopleâ€™s feelings that didnâ€™t deserve it, I donâ€™t think I would change much. Did I make some bad decisions? Yeah. Would I do it again? Yeah, probablyâ€¦God has Blessed me many times. I had some great genetics.â€
When he completes the program, he plans on joining Young on some business related to the Insane Clown Posseâ€™s Juggalo Championship Wrestling. Hall also looks to attend this yearâ€™s WWE Hall of Fame ceremony in Atlanta, featuring the induction of his friend Shawn Michaels.
