Cody Hall opens up about WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall and his struggles to be the son of a ‘bad guy’.
Young Hall followed in his father’s footsteps and became a professional wrestler at the age of 19. He is best known as a member of the Bullet Club led by New Japan Pro Wrestling AJ Styles, but has worked in several other independent promotions in Japan and the United States.
His father Scott, a wrestling legend, passed away on March 14 this year. Hall is known as Razor Ramon in WWE, but many know him from his time in WCW as an original member of the nWo faction.
Cody Hall recently joined an episode of Chris Van Vliet Insights PodcastOn the podcast, Cody admitted that it’s still hard to live up to his famous father’s name. He said his father was a great man but had a hard time finding his way in the wrestling world:
“Every show I go to, people want to say this and that to my dad, ‘Oh, he’s the coolest. He’s the best,’ and it’s hard to survive. (…) No matter what I do, people won’t admit it. Always about my father. So it was definitely a struggle for me and it still is. ”
Cody also revealed that he is still trying to find professional wrestling. He pointed out that he used to love doing his dad’s wrestling moves, but it became difficult because people would only think of his dad:
“Being an imitator is always a failure from the start. There’s still debate about what I want to be,” Cody Hall added. (H/T: WrestlingNews.co)
