Note from Ryan Clark: This is just my opinion but I call complete BS on the 'double pneumonia' story. That's not to say that he didn't have pneumonia but I've known Scott for years and can tell you that he's been in rough shape in recent months. He's been to several rehabs and according to my source, he recently entered another one and that's where he is right now. WWE is paying for this one.
