Kevin Nash Reveals Scott Hall Episode in Production for Dark Side of the Ring
In a recent episode of the Kliq This podcast, co-host Kevin Nash revealed that the producers of the Dark Side of the Ring series are currently working on plans for the production of an episode based on Scott Hall.
“Yeah, so Dark Side Of The Ring, they want to do something and they want to involve me and they want to involve Sean Waltman, Cody’s gonna be involved. The thing that we want to do is tell people who Scott [Hall] really fucking was. I just don’t think that the A&E perspective is ever going to cover the post traumatic stress of Scott and the shooting that happened at the dollhouse on Orange Avenue. There’s a reason that so many of our warriors come back from combat and take their lives, because they’ve taken a life. Scott’s thing was always, because he was so highly religious, Scott would say ‘But you don’t understand man, I’m not going to heaven. I’ve broken one of the Ten Commandments, thou shall not kill. I’ve killed, I’m not going to go to heaven, my soul will be in limbo.”
