As was previously reported, 2014 WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall recently no-showed a Big Time Wrestling event that was being promoted by Kirk White. Hall reportedly texted White and told him that he "was in a dark place" in his life. Hall was reportedly paid $1,600 in advance but on the day he was supposed to go he absolutely refused to get out of bed, despite the efforts of his son Cody, "Diamond" Dallas Page, and even Hall's agent Bill Behrens. Jake Roberts reportedly expressed concern for Hall on a recent podcast with "Rowdy" Roddy Piper.
Bill Behrens issued the following statement about the situation:
"I regret that Scott Hall decided last minute he would not make the trip from Atlanta with his son Cody to Big Time Wrestling’s Wrestlefest and wrestling event. His son, Cody Hall, Dallas page and myself all tried to change his mind but he could not get past the personal issues that had him unwilling to travel to California. Kirk, you are a true professional who goes out of his way to deliver what he promotes and promises. I hope the fans who attend WrestleFest and that evening’s wrestling event do not feel shortchanged by Scott’s decision. I am confident all who attend will have a great time. I believe it is Scott Hall’s loss to have missed this opportunity to meet his many fans and to see his son Cody wrestle for the first time in California. I am sure in time he will come to regret his decision, if he has not already."
