Scott Hall spoke with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated about his career and more. Here are the highlights.
On Finn Balor: “The guys who I currently follow start with Finn Bálor. I’m such a fan of his, and I was so sorry to see him get hurt right at the zenith of his push.”
On Kevin Owens and Shinsuke Nakamura: “I’m also a big Kevin Owens fan, and Shinsuke Nakamura is over like a rock star,” said Hall. “People want him pulled up right away, but at the same time, they’ve got to keep NXT alive. NXT is working better than anticipated. When guys leave NXT and go to the main roster, those guys are already over. Before, a lot of guys languished in FCW and OVW. Now that Triple H is running it from head to toe, it’s the hottest show out there—so everything is going better than planned.”
On wanting to be a trainer at NXT: “In a perfect world, I’d end up at NXT,” revealed Hall. “I also realize that getting clean is one thing, but staying clean is another. I need to stay clean for a long time. The best thing I can do is keep showing up places with a clear head and see what happens.”
