But he just really doesn’t want to quit what he’s doing. And he’s a friend of mine.” He also talks about his own substance problems that occurred last year when he was let go by TNA. “I had been famous. I’d made a ton of money. Then I got fired and it felt like everything was crumbling. I understand exactly where he (Hall) is at. I pray for him every morning. I’ve been there. When you can’t handle life, you just want to alter your mind. I hadn’t saved any money. I went through it like a crazy rock star. The only thing I knew was to take more drugs. I shut myself in my home. I contemplated suicide.” He had a successful rehab stint, adding “The last seven months I’ve had serenity. I’m a husband, a father. My life is good today.” He also noted that Gunn is on the road to recovery from his own substance abuse problems as well adding, “He’s doing great. He’s turned his life around as well.”
