Scott Hall Thinks He Might Be Wrestling At Raw 25

Scott Hall

Scott Hall is the special guest on this week’s episode of X-Pac 12360 to talk about Raw 25. During the interview, the WWE Hall of Famer reveals that he was told by WWE officials to bring his ring gear to the show. Highlights from the interview are as follows:

Loyalty to those who helped you out:

“I worked with Larry Zbyszko back in what we used to call ‘broadway’ (a time limit draw), back in the day. Fans, we used to wrestle 15 to 20-minute draw and Zbyszko put me over. He led me through everything by the hand, so I’ve always been loyal to Larry. That’s why when we were on top in the NWO days, I’d involve Larry. I turned Dusty [to the] nWo because I never forgot what he did for me. You know how it is, you don’t forget the guys who helped you, you don’t forget the guys who treat you like s–t.”

Being a part of the first angle on RAW where Waltman upset Hall:

“People of a certain age are aware that we did the first ever angle on RAW ever, when you beat Razor. It was an iconic moment on RAW. By the way, they showed it on RAW that you beat me. They don’t show me dominating you.”

Not catching Waltman when he hit a moonsault during their match on Raw:

“I had the luxury to talk to Mike Chioda the referee [and asked] “Is he up there?” You know, I’m selling the miss pose, I turn around and ask “Is he ready?” [Chioda] said yeah. I turned, you beat me. Now I’m on the floor, the ref is in the ring counting, So, I don’t have anymore to ask or unless I could have asked somebody in the front row (laughs) is he ready? But I turned too fast because I thought, this young guy is so nervous waiting for me. It was my fault, and I told you about this before, I turned too soon then you saw me turning, you tried to hurry up so I wouldn’t look too stupid for standing there, and you slipped. You hit that concrete bro and you were out. Your eyes rolled back, I look at Vince and he looked down. Now, watching the commentary back, he was blowing me off, he was commentating. I rolled you in the ring, I look at Vince and [he] went f–k it, pin him.’ [Waltman ended up recovering enough to improvise the ending of the match with Hall]

Receiving a message from the WWE office about RAW 25:

“I just got a text from the office that said, ‘Please bring your ring gear.’ I said, ‘Are you ribbing me? You’re going to tell me like three or four days in advance, ya know?’ Give me a little notice and for the right money, I’ll have abs showing. I said, ‘Now, how about I bring what I wear to appearances?’ I’ve got gimmick street clothes. But I think we’re going to have a rematch, so I’m just giving you a heads up. I think it’s about time I went over.”
