Former WWE superstar Diamond Dallas Page has created a successful yoga program since leaving professional wrestling. One of the first big names that he has helped with this program is Jake "The Snake" Roberts, and PWInsider reported on Jan. 6 that Scott Hall might be next.
The situation with Jake Roberts was inspiring. The Snake remains one of the most beloved characters in wrestling history, arguably the best intelligent bad guy of all time. However, somewhere along the way drugs and alcohol ruined his life.
Roberts ended up out of wrestling, and the documentary "Beyond the Mat" showed his downfall, including the destruction of his family in the process. Honestly, the only question left was when Roberts was going to eventually drink himself to death.
One day, Roberts made the decision to go to Diamond Dallas Page and ask for help. DDP agreed under the stipulation that Jake move in to his place, quit drinking completely and clean himself up. If he did that, Page said that he could get Roberts ready to return to the ring and retire under his own terms.
Jake "The Snake" Roberts has now lost over 50 pounds.
Now, another tragic figure from professional wrestling might be coming Page's way. Scott Hall was one of the most talented wrestlers in WCW when the company finally overtook the WWE in the ratings. However, his hard partying lifestyle caused him to end up traveling down the same road as Roberts. He has even managed to push away his closest friends, Kevin Nash and Triple H.
If Diamond Dallas Page can save Scott Hall, he might truly be a miracle worker.
