Former WWF Intercontinental Champion Scott “Razor Ramon” Hall has been in a drug treatment facility in Atlanta, Georgia for seven weeks and is said to be embracing rehab fully for the first time in his life. Hall was given an intervention of sorts by family & friends and agreed without a struggle to accept World Wrestling Entertainment’s offer to pay for rehab treatment. Hall had been out of circulation for so long that WWE wasn’t able to get him his merchandise royalties, so along with the company paying for his treatment, he received a nice check for back royalties as well. After his stint in rehab comes to a close, Hall plans on resuming his wrestling career as he is already accepting dates from indy promoters for the summer. Hall is staying at the same rehab facility Jake Roberts and Ron Simmons are situated at. Friend Sean “X-Pac” Waltman is also in a treatment facility on WWE’s dime, although he’s staying in Houston, Texas.
At Sunday’s Raw brand house show at the Resch Center in Green Bay, Wisconsin, during a largely heatless match between Brian Kendrick and D.H. Smith, a fan shouted, “That is what steroids will do for you” towards Smith. Smith acknowledged the fan by smiling at him and flexing his bicep. Smith came out as a babyface, but seemingly transitioned into the heel role as the match progressed, according to a fan’s report. The 175-pound wrestler eventually scored the pin over Smith.
