TheWhig.com published a detailed interview with Scott Hall, where he talked about a number of topics. One quote we found more interesting was when he claimed that he didn’t get paid royalties from WWE for 15 years out of spite. Below is an excerpt:
“I'm so happy to be back on the royalty gravy train,” he said. “I was the guy who left and went to work for the competition and guess what, the competition started winning. I got blamed for taking Kev (Kevin Nash) with me. I didn't get a royalty cheque for 15 years, Kev still got his.”
“Vince took it personally when I left, to the point where I didn't get royalties,” he said, adding that while he didn’t receive royalties, McMahon and WWE did pay for several of his rehab attempts. “He still was showing me love. He wasn't going to give me money that I could do bad things with was what it came down to. 'I'll pay for your hospital, I pay for your rehab, I'm not sending you money that you might go buy booze or drugs with,' was what it came down to.”
