Scott Hall has been sober for more than 40 days. That's according to a fund-raising website set up by Diamond Dallas Page.
DDP is trying to raise $80,000 to cover Hall's hip replacement surgery, physical therapy, dental work and ongoing medical expenses.

benefit of Scott Hall's process of recovery and physical rehabilitation."
