Scott Hall has been one of the best known names in the history of pro wrestling, and that grew even more when he, along with Kevin Nash, left WWE for WCW. The two then went on to form the New World Order with Hulk Hogan, and the rest is history. Hall also knew that pro wrestling was a business, and he had an amazing contract with Ted Turner’s company.
Barry Bloom, who represented Hall at the time, recently made an appearance on Chris Jericho’s Talk Is Jericho podcast, where he divulged some interesting details about Hall’s contract with WCW. Specifically, Bloom revealed one way in which he made Hall’s deal with WCW more profitable.
If anybody, except for Hogan, I listed The Undertaker, I listed Kevin Nash, I listed, there was no Goldberg yet, but I listed Bret Hart. There was a list of people there that if they came in, WCW would have to match the salary … other than Hogan.
Bloom, of course, continued to expand his clientele, eventually representing both Hall and Nash, whom he described as, “obviously, hell of a duo.” Following the creation of nWo, Bloom revealed that it was only a matter of time before they realized they deserved to be paid more fairly.
This is certainly an interesting piece of information about a pivotal moment in wrestling history. You can check out Jericho’s podcast below.
