Sports Illustrated has a new interview with Scott Hall. Below are a couple of highlights:
"I would have kept pushing the guy. I didn't like what they did when he put Finn Bálor over on Raw and they humbled him after the match. He had to do an interview in the aisle after he lost and put Bálor over again. But that was on the heels of something happening with him and the Wellness Program. There is only one place to work now, so things have tightened up. If you don't like it, what are you going to do? So Vince is cracking the whip, and everybody's got to get in line. When I was there, they drug tested. Sometimes, in a ten-day loop, we'd have four drug tests. They cracked the whip then too, and everybody got in line. If you want to work in the United States, there is only one place to work—and that is WWE. If they're running a tight ship, then get in line."
Being a fan of Shinsuke Nakamura:
"Shinsuke Nakamura is over like a rock star. 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."
Hall also discussed Cody Hall returning to Japan, if Seth Rollins is dangerous, if Hulk Hogan will be back in WWE and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
