Former WWE & WCW Star Scott Hall Passes Away

Scott Hall has passed away

Former WWE and WCW star Scott Hall sadly passed away today. He was 63-years-old. 

It emerged over the weekend that Hall was on life support after suffering three heart attacks on Saturday. The Bad Guy underwent hip surgery last week but post-surgery complications resulted in a blood clot getting loose. 

Hall's friend and former tag team partner Kevin Nash announced earlier today that life support would be discontinued once his family were in place. 

Following his in-ring debut in 1984, Hall wrestled for several promotions including the AWA, New Japan Pro-Wrestling, WWC, WCW, CWA and various NWA territories before he finally settled in WWE in 1992. 

Packaged as Razor Ramon, The Bad Guy would become a then-record four-time Intercontinental Champion during his four-year run with Vince McMahon's company. His time in the promotion was fondly remembered for matches against the likes of 1-2-3 Kid and Bret Hart, as well as two famous Ladder Matches against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania 10 and SummerSlam 1995. 

Ramon accepted an offer from WCW in 1996 for more money and fewer dates and after his involvement in the famous curtain call with his fellow Kliq members, Hall would debut on the May 27 edition of Monday Nitro. Kevin Nash followed him to WCW a couple of weeks later and they formed The Outsiders, presented as an invading force from WWE.

Hall and Nash were then involved in one of the most famous heel turns in wrestling history as Hulk Hogan joined The Outsiders at Bash At The Beach 1996 and formed the New World Order. 

Hall would remain a part of various incarnations of the nWo until he departed World Championship Wrestling in early 2000. He ended his run with the company as a seven-time WCW World Tag Team Champion, two-time United States Champion, and one-time World Television Champion.

Following his WCW exit, Hall would perform for ECW, AJPW and NJPW before he returned to WWE and reformed the nWo with Hogan and Nash in early 2002. Hall remained with the company for a few months until he was fired in May following The Plane Ride From Hell. 

For the latter years of his in-ring career, Hall would wrestle for TNA, IWA Puerto Rico and WWC before his eventual retirement in 2010.

Hall was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame, first in 2014 as Razor Ramon and then in 2021 as part of the nWo.

Cultaholic extends its condolences to Hall's family and friends. 

Hard work pays off, dreams come true. Bad times don't last, but bad guys do.
