In what has to be a horrible move, WWE Hall of Fame legend Scott Hall snubbed a child with terminal cancer at a recent autograph convention in Phoenix. According to Wrestle View on Saturday, the wrestlers in attendance were asked to sign a giant birthday card for the six-year old cancer patient and Hall was the only wrestler in attendance who refused to sign the card.
This has to come as a surprise since it was just last year that fans donated their money to help Hall get the surgery he needed to start living a more comfortable life. The fund raiser was started by Diamond Dallas Page who was working to help Hall sober up and clean up his life. After so many fans stepped up when Hall needed them, it seems to be bad karma for Hall to turn his back on a request from a six-year old cancer patient.
Wrestlers in attendance at the autograph convention included “Nature Boy” Ric Flair, Bill Goldberg, “Big Sexy” Kevin Nash, Bret “The Hit Man” Hart and Adam “Edge” Copeland. All of those wrestlers signed the card for the young cancer patient. The wrestlers also recorded some personal wishes on camera for the child.
As a matter of fact, Goldberg was so taken back and moved by the sentiment that he choked up while giving his well wishes on camera. Goldberg also offered to have the child call him to talk sometime. Also in attendance and signing the card, while taking part in the moment, were Christy Hemme, Candice Michelle, Angelina Love, Lita, Sean “X-Pac” Waltman, Maria Kanellis, Lisa Marie “Victoria” Varon, Taryn Terrell and Brooke Tessmacher.
The idea that the wrestlers were there to sign autographs really should have presented Scott Hall with no problem. With all the WWE superstar has been through, and to see his fans remain by his side, this is just a poor attitude for Hall to take. The word is that a lot of his peers at the event were not happy with his refusal to sign the card.
