After complications resulting from surgery, Scott Hall has been taken off life support. RIP Scott Hall.
They say never meet your hero’s they’re sure to disappoint. What about meeting your villains? The bad guys, the ones who made us boo.
Scott Hall was renowned in the wrestling world as Razor Ramon, a character heavily based on Al Pacino’s Tony Montana aka Scarface. Razor changed the wrestling world forever in 1996, when he was one of the first big names to defect to WCW from the WWF and appeared on Monday night as part of an invasion angle. He was an icon in the wrestling world and would always be paired with the biggest names. The Bret Harts, Shawn Michaels and Kevin Harts. The Hulk Hogans, Stings, and even Stone Cold Steve Austin.
Scott was regularly booed, but it’s what made him so loved.
“Bad times don’t last, but bad guys do.”
Tributes have flooded in for wrestling legend Scott Hall, who will be taken off life support, his friend and fellow New World Order (NWO) founder Kevin Nash announced.
Hall, who performed as Razor Ramon in WWE and Scott “Gator” Hall in WCW was put on life support after he suffered three heart attacks on the weekend during complications from hip replacement surgery, according to reports.
Hall, 63, was at a hospital in Georgia in America’s south to repair a broken hip after he fell.
The wrestler experienced trouble with his heart in the past, which resulted in him getting a defibrillator and pacemaker implanted in his chest.
“Scott’s on life support. Once his family is in place they will discontinue life support,” Nash wrote in an emotional tribute to Hall on Instagram.
“I’m going to lose the one person on this planet I’ve spent more of my life with than anyone else,” Nash continued in his Instagram message. My heart is broken and I’m so very f—ing sad.
“I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present. I’ve been blessed to have a friend that took me at face value and I him.
“When we jumped to WCW we didn’t care who liked or hated us. We had each other and with the smooth Barry Bloom we changed wrestling both in content and pay for those.
“Scott always felt he wasn’t worthy of the afterlife. Well God please have some gold-plated toothpicks for my brother. My life was enriched with his take on life. He wasn’t perfect but as he always said, ‘The last perfect person to walk the planet they nailed to a cross’.
“As we prepare for life without him just remember there goes a great guy you ain’t going to see another one like him again. See Ya down the road Scott. I couldn’t love a human being any more than I do you.”
Heartfelt messages for Hall from wrestling fans and former wrestlers hit the internet after Nash’s devastating message.
Pro wrestler Matt Cardona commented on Instagram: “He changed my life. This is horrible news.”
