It appears that Scott Hall has lost the trust of WWE that he worked so hard and so long to regain. Management had planned on doing a DVD for the entire Kliq, and they were even going to do a reunion show.

They are simply going to sell the documentary and nothing more.

Things can get pretty ugly when family members fight, especially when the connection between them is no longer living.

The belief is that this might lead to a DVD or other merchandise for the former world tag team champions.

That is why it comes as a bit of a surprise that management is having Randy Orton talk about his past drug addition on an upcoming DVD. There were rumors that were floating around for years about Orton, and his loyal fans denied that there were any drug issues.

When WWE creates a DVD for a performer, they generally allow them some creative input. With Jerry Lawler, he is receiving a whole lot of input. The longtime commentator is being allowed to pick and choose which matches that he wants on the feature. Management is even paying him for the rights to use the footage, since Lawler owns most of the content from the Memphis territory. This is definitely a special case scenario.
