As reported on Friday, Diamond Dallas Page is attempting to raise $80,000 for Scott Hall in order to pay for his hip replacement surgery, physical therapy, dental work and his other medical expenses. DDP says that, similar to Jake Roberts has, he believes that Hall's health can improve and has promised to manage any donated money.
As of this writing on Sunday morning, DDP has raised $38,518 of the $80,000 needed after just two days. Page has promised that he will handle the donated money in order to make sure it goes to what is being asked for. If you wish to donate, you can do so at this link. The donations do have reward levels similar to how Kickstarter works.
Here is the article we posted yesterday:
As noted late last night here on the website, DDP has posted an update on Scott Hall, saying that Hall has been sober for forty days now but needs to raise $80,000 to pay for his hip replacement surgery, physical therapy, dental work and his other medical expenses. DDP says that, similar to Jake Roberts has, he believes that Hall's health can improve and has promised to manage any donated money. Scott currently has no health insurance which makes these medical bills insanely high.
You can (and should if you have a few extra dollars) contribute via IndieGoGo at this link. As noted, DDP is managing all of the money that is taken in. Scotty really needs this guys. Say what you want about his past but the guy is currently on the right path and has the guidance of DDP and others now. He deserves this and I'd urge you to donate if you've got anything to spare .... even if it's $10.
It should be noted that the "mansion" he owned was recently foreclosed by the bank so he no longer owns it and can't make anything from it. As I noted on my Facebook page, it is unreal to see some of the comments on the Hall post(s). Don't want to donate? .... simply don't as that is your choice and nobody is forcing you to do so. With that being said, please don't bitch and moan at the people who do have a heart and want to help out. We'll be re-posting this article several times throughout the next week or so and I'm sure I'll take some "heat" for it. The bottom line is this - addiction is a powerful disease and he's currently on the right path with DDP. The truth is Scott doesn't want to ask for your help as he says in the video below. Anyone who knows him will tell you that same exact thing. Lots of people don't seem to understand the power of addiction ... or have a heart .. and they are likely the ones posting unnecessary comments. It's easy to knock a man when he's down. Simply ignore them guys. The past is the past and right now he's got the right people around him and is currently 41 days sober. That's a big accomplishment and gets a HUGE congratulations from all of us here on the website. If anything, you've got to give him credit for that and for trying to better his life.
