The pro wrestling world was in a very sad state when it was announced that WWE legend Scott Hall would be taken off of life support. Titus O’Neil recently spoke out on the impact Hall had on pro wrestling.
Scott Hall was a part of the group ‘NWO’ that lit up the world of pro wrestling for a time. He was joined by other WWE legends like Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan. Titus O’Neil remembers how they shook up the wrestling world.
“I got to know him probably around 2014 and even when he was not around, he would text me,” the WWE ambassador told Beckles & Recher. “He’d see something on TV on Monday Night Raw or Smackdown and he’s like, ‘hey man, that’s good stuff. Keep pushing. Keep pushing. Stay positive, no matter what they give you, you know? Make the best out of it.’ And then last year, obviously I got a chance to spend some time with him, being inducted into the Hall of Fame with nWo, and he was always just, always full of life. You know, the life of the party.”
“Everybody deals with their own demons, but at the core, he was a really good man and obviously changed the whole landscape of professional wrestling and sports entertainment when he formed the nWo with Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan and was one of the first professional sports entertainers to have guaranteed contracts. They literally changed the pay scale and the landscape for a lot of people.”
It is good to know that Scott Hall has had a positive impact on WWE and in the pro wrestling world. Titus O’Neil is one of many that speaks highly of his impact.
