Who is Scott Hall?

Scott Oliver Hall (born October 20, 1958) is an American retired professional wrestler. He is known for his work with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF, now WWE) as Razor Ramon and with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) under his real name.

Wrestling legend Scott Hall on life support after multiple heart attacks

Wrestling legend Scott Hall, who rose to popularity in the early 1990s under the name Razor Ramon, was placed on life support after suffering multiple heart attacks following hip replacement surgery.

The surgery had serious complications and led to three heart attacks, leaving “The Bad Guy” on life support at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, Georgia.

“Once his family is in place, they will discontinue life support,” he wrote.

“I’m going to lose the one person on this planet I’ve spent more of my life with than anyone else,” Nash shared.

“I love Scott with all my heart, but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present.”

“My thoughts and prayers are for Scott Hall who is on life support at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital. We spent many years in WCW and WWE together. Some great memories,” fellow former WWE wrestler “Marvelous” Marc Mero tweeted out.

Hall saw a massive rise to fame in the early ’90s as the Scarface-inspired Razor Ramon. After a number of Intercontinental title runs, Hall left the WWE to go back to WCW (World Championship Wrestling) where he helped revolutionize wrestling as we knew it by forming the New World Order, or nWo, with Hulk Hogan and Nash.

Over the years, Hall developed a severe alcohol addiction that even played out on TV while in WCW and in TNA/Impact Wrestling as part of a storyline. He later sought treatment and got sober.

He has since been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice, once as himself with the nWo and once as the iconic Razor Ramon. In an acceptance speech, he famously said, “Hard work pays off, dreams come true. Bad times don’t last, but bad guys do.”

“Our thoughts and prayers are with Scott Hall and his family. Thinking of you all right now. Sending so much health, healing, love, and strength your way. Xoxo,” Impact Wrestling Knockout Champion Mickie James tweeted Sunday afternoon.

Scott Hall Biography, Wiki

Scott Hall was born into a military family on October 20, 1958. Due to the army life he grew up a traveller and spent his high school years at the All American High in Munich, Germany.

When his family returned to the States he attended St Mary’s College in Maryland where he graduated with a degree in Pre Med, with hopes to become a children’s doctor. By this time Scott was already training to be a wrestler. He made his ring debut in South Carolina in 1984 and was picked up by the now defunct AWA soon after.

Almost a decade later without hitting major success in the wrestling world, Scott Hall signed with the WWF in 1992. Taking a character he had used previously in WCW, Scott expanded the Diamond Studd and turned him into a Cuban gangster, basing “The Bad Guy” Razor Ramon on the gangster movies he’d watched as a child.

After 3 successful years as Razor, and some great matches, including the Ladder Match against the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 10 (since voted the best Wrestlemania match of all time), Scott signed with WCW, where he had some of the most controversial years of his career.

His May 1996 appearance on the Turner Broadcasting Monday Nitro program breathed life into a dying wrestling market when he instigated the New World Order.

After winning several tag team golds with his best friend Kevin Nash, and a couple of singles US championships, Scott received an injury to his neck during a match with Jeff Jarrett in February 2000, which kept him off the TV.

Scott was fired from WCW in October of 2000, allegedly due to drunken behavior on a German tour prior to his injury.
