Many people may never have been interested in knowing details about Dana if she were not married to a popular figure like Scott Hall. Before their marriage, she was just an ordinary American girl living her life like every other ordinary girl. However, that changed after she married the superstar wrestler and was launched into the limelight.

Details of Dana Lee Burgio’s Background are Vague

Although she was once married to a man who was famous, with the most information about him in the open, Dana Lee, also known as Dana Hall, chose to live a very private life. As such, there’s hardly anything known about her background. This means that information about her childhood, early education, parents, and siblings (if any), among others, are unavailable.

However, it’s been guessed that she was born sometime between 1960-1963, in Winter
Springs, Florida, United States, as revealed on her Facebook account. It is also common knowledge that she attended Winter Park High School. From there, she moved on to Seminole State College of Florida, where she bagged a Bachelor of Arts degree in Police Academy.

Dana Married Scott Hall Twice

Dana and her late wrestler ex-husband first met at a bar in Orlando, where they both worked when she was 17 years old. However, they moved on with their lives and never met again until almost 8 years after at another nightclub in the Orlando area. By then, Dana had already been married and divorced and had twin boys who were five years old at the time.

That notwithstanding, the two started dating and co-habited for about two years before getting married for the first time in February 1990 in Winter Park, Florida, where Scott lived and worked for Dusty Rhodes in small towns throughout the Southeast.

Speaking to The Post and Courier in 2016, Dana said there was a solid connection between them, which was pretty much the basis of their relationship. According to her, things were smooth initially as they traveled together to Germany and the Caribbean during a two-year stint there. They did everything together, from going to the gym and training to going on bike rides and the beach, among other things.

Scott’s Wrestling Career Destroyed His Marriage With Dana

The couple’s marriage took a dramatic turn a few years later when Scott ventured into professional wrestling. “It wasn’t until Scott started with the first alter ego, The Diamond Studd, then Razor Ramon, that things started to go really bad, and it hasn’t stopped,” Dana told the publication.

She further revealed that the more Scott became famous, the more he got out of control, and the more their marriage and family came crashing. Unfortunately, Dana thought it was best for them to part ways, and consequently, they divorced in May 1998 as a result of Scott’s drugs and alcohol addiction.

Shortly after, they decided to give their love another chance and started living together the following year (1999) after tying the knot again in March. About two years later, they filed for their marriage to be annulled again and eventually got officially divorced in October of the same year. Subsequently, they got back together and separated several times.

As the years went by, Scott’s substance abuse problem got worse, but every effort made by Dana to help him was futile as he refused to be helped. Sadly, his health became a complete mess, and he died on March 14, 2022, in Marietta, Georgia, due to complications that arose after he underwent hip replacement surgery. His body was buried at Trinity Church Cemetery, St. Mary’s County, Maryland, U.S.

A post shared by Cassidy Hall (@cassastrudel)

The marriage between Dana Lee Burgio and Scott Hall produced two children, a son, and a daughter, respectively named Cody Taylor Hall and Cassidy Hall. Taylor, the couple’s first child, was born on May 31, 1991, in Chuluota, Florida. He was part of the U.S. Air Force and served an active duty service commitment at Buckley Air Force Base in Colorado with the 460th Security Forces Squadron.

Deciding to tow his father’s path professionally, he started training with him in 2010 and subsequently had his first match two years later, precisely on July 14, 2012, in Belleview Pro Wrestling. He is still actively wrestling to date and has won many fights.

On the other hand, Cassidy was born on March 27, 1995, in Winter Springs, Florida. She Winter Springs High School, and after her graduation, she continued her education at the University of Central Florida, from where she graduated with a nursing degree in 2022. 

According to her Facebook profile, Cassidy Hall, is now working. She lives in Utah, where she works at the state’s hospital, but it seems like that information is no longer accurate. This is because a November 2021 update on Cassidy’s Instagram page revealed that she relocated to Montana “to live with her best friend.”

Dana Lee Burgio’s Children Never Had a Real Relationship With Their Father

Although Scott gave his all to his career and became successful at it, he never did the same for Taylor and his sister. Speaking in the interview with The Post and Courier, Dana disclosed that she had been praying that Scott would make things right with his children.

According to her, her last hope was that he would get in a safe place and clear out his head enough to where he could make his relationship with his children better. “But I know that’s not going to happen now. That was my last prayer and dream and wish … that there would be some kind of happy ending … that he could die with his family around him and on good terms with me and the kids,” Dana added.

She stated that Taylor and Cassidy were the real casualties of their father’s success. However, they chose to hold in the hurt they felt because they hated to talk about it. Sadly, they also had to accept that they had neither a father nor a normal life.

Dana Hall also disclosed that at the time of the interview, the former WWE star, who lost his parental and visitation rights in 2005, was hospitalized and had not seen his daughter in almost one year until the then-16-year-old Cassidy visited him at the hospital. Meanwhile, he had also not seen Taylor in almost two years.

True to all Dana had said, Scott Hall acknowledged in 2013 that the success of his wrestling career came at the cost of his marriage and his relationships with his children. As he said, he did many things he was not proud of and many things he couldn’t even recall doing.

That notwithstanding, Cassidy still loved her father. When the news of his terminal health issues emerged, she took to her Instagram story to post a photo of her as a baby with her father and captioned it, “Love you forever, Daddy.”

Did Dana Lee Burgio Remarry After Scott Hall?

Following the end of her marriage to Scott Hall, Dana tried so hard to move on with her life, but her love for him wouldn’t let her let go of him completely. As a result, she kept on trying to mend fences and help him overcome his addictions, especially for the sake of their children.

But when this did not happen, she gave up and took care of her children alone. Probably because of this, she never got involved in any other relationship as far as we know, and neither did she get married again.

Dana Lee Burgio is an Entrepreneur

What is Dana Lee Burgio’s Net Worth?

For Dana to have been running her business since 2002 means that she is making good money from it. However, there is no information regarding how much gain she records monthly or annually. It is also unknown whether she has any other job or business apart from “Your Angel.” As a result, it isn’t easy to know what her net worth is. Nevertheless, some sources have pegged it at not less than $500,000.

Where Is Dana Lee Burgio Now?

Being someone that has always preferred to live a quiet life, it is difficult to tell where Dana Lee Burgio is per time or what she is doing.
