Mike Mooneyham of The Post & Courier spoke with Scott Hall's son Cody, who was featured in the recent ESPN:60 documentary. Below are some highlights from the interview:
Wrestling being a part of his life:
When he knew he wanted to be a wrestler:
His relationship with Scott:
"I left because of the anguish of watching my dad kill himself with his addictions. It became too hard for me to witness this every day, and no matter how much I tried to help him, nothing changed. Eventually there came a point where I couldn’t live around it any longer."
"My dad has told me on a hundred occasions it was his dream for me to follow in his footsteps and to see me get to the point he was and take it even further, and as long as I can avoid his vices I can have all the success imaginable."
"I want to remember my dad as just a dad, not a wrestler, but the guy who was there when I rode without the training wheels or who waited for me by the bus stop when he was home. As long as I have those memories, that’s how he will always be to me in the end."
