Pro-wrestling legend Scott Hall has passed away at the age of 63. Earlier this month, he was hospitalized after falling and breaking his hip. On March 13th, it was reported that Hall was on life support after undergoing hip surgery, due to a blood clot dislodging and causing him to have three heart attacks on March 12th. In the early hours of March 14th, Kevin Nash announced via Instagram that Hall’s family was going to discontinue life support. His life support was discontinued later that day, and Hall’s passing was announced by WWE via Twitter.
Scott Hall went from being a star in the 1980s via co-holding the AWA World Tag Team Championship in 1986, to becoming a superstar after joining WWE in 1992 as, “Razor Ramon”. He held the WWE Intercontinental Championship a total of four times during his four years with the company.
In 1996, Scott Hall left WWE and signed with WCW. This was not his first time with the company, as Hall had previously wrestled for WCW in 1989, and then wrestled for them again from 1991-1992 (this time as, “Diamond Studd”). It was his 1996 return however when Hall made his biggest impact by returning as a member of the NWO, which is considered by many to be the greatest pro-wrestling faction of all time.
While in WCW, Scott Hall held the WCW World Television Championship, the WCW United States Championship on two occasions, and also held the WCW World Tag Team Championship a total of seven times. His third tag championship reign was 231 days in length, the longest WCW World Tag Team Championship reign in history.
Scott Hall also saw championship success in TNA where he became co-holder of the TNA World Tag Team Championship in 2010, as well as in the Japan-based DDT, where he won the DDT Iron Man Heavy Metal Championship in 2016.
Scott Hall has been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice. The first time was in 2014 as Razor Ramon, and the second time was as a part of the 2020 class, inducted as a member of the NWO.
