In another look into what continues to be a life headed towards an expected end, Scott Hall will appear in a story on ESPN about his life entitled "The Wrestler."
The title is taken, of course, from the infamous movie starring Mickey Rourke about a wrestler who was once on top of the world and is now a broken shell of a man trying to pick up the pieces of his life. Watching this play out in real life with Scott Hall is saddening and maddening all at the same time.
Eric Bischoff appears in the piece and likely many of Hall's family and friends will appear, as well. Wrestling fans have often debated why Vince McMahon and the friends of these performers can't save him when they know for a fact he's on a dark path.
After watching the 1:24 preview of this ESPN story you may have a clearer picture as to why that is so.
I feel nothing but sadness; it's as if Hall has already died and the funeral has yet to occur. Just look at his face -- that is not the "Bad Guy" I remember and loved as a child. Imagine what his family feels. I'm blown away.
The entire piece airs October 19 at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN. Preview video after the jump.
