Diamond Dallas Page is begging wrestling fans to stick by troubled wrestler Scott Hall.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Scott Hall, a WWE Hall of Famer, was escorted out of an independent wrestling event at the Skate and Surf Festival in Ashbury, New Jersey, for apparent intoxication. Scott Hall has had a very public struggle with alcoholism. Recently, Hall seemed to have overcome his addiction and turned his life around. Thoughts of recovery were dashed when video emerged of Hall, apparently intoxicated, arguing with a promoter as security escorted him away from the show.
Diamond Dallas Page spoke with TMZ to let Hall know that he still has support.
“Scott is going through a life process. He’s stumbled along the way, but he is doing well over all. I’ve got his back. Even Jake ‘The Snake’ has fallen a few times, but he is now one year sober and doing great.”
Page has served as a sober mentor for both Hall and Page. Page said he hoped to speak with Scott Hall to help the struggling wrestling star get back on track, and it looks like that might happen. WZR Online, reports that Hall flew to Atlanta last night to meet with Diamond Dallas Page. A source close to Hall alleged that roadies, working for a band that performed at the festival, gave the drinks to Hall. When the promoter of the event asked Hall to leave, he allegedly refused to do so until he received payment, which led the promoter to have Hall escorted out by security.
Fans took to Twitter to show their support for Scott Hall.
Im hoping @SCOTTHALLNWO is doing well. He proved for a long time he could get better. Round two awaits…

Fan support hasn’t prevented fallout from Hall’s relapse. Just two days after the announcement that he had joined the company, Global Force Wrestling quietly removed Scott Hall’s information from the company website. Global Force Wrestling has yet to release a statement confirming Hall’s release from the company.
