- WWE legend Scott Hall, better known as “Razor Ramon,” dies at 63
- Hulk Hogan paid his heartfelt tribute to Hall
Pro wrestling fans were shattered after news broke that Scott Hall, better known as “Razor Ramon,” has died. Hall was placed in life support after experiencing serious pain caused by complications from a recent surgery on his broken hip.
The complications led to the WWE legend suffering three heart attacks on Saturday. Hall fought for his life for three days but was then confirmed dead on Monday, per various sources, including TMZ Sports.
Hall’s passing breaks a good friend’s heart
Hall made his mark in the famed World Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Federation in the 1990s. He co-founded the infamous “nWo” (New World Order) faction with Kevin Nash, who also happened to be one of his closest pals in real life.
Nash was among the first to learn about Hall’s death and revealed the terrible news on his official Instagram account.
“Scott’s on life support,” Nash wrote. “Once his family is in place they will discontinue life support. I’m going to lose the one person on this planet I’ve spent more of my life with than anyone else. My heart is broken and I’m so very fucking sad. I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present.”
Hollywood Hogan pays homage to the “Bad Guy”
The legendary Hulk Hogan was also a key figure of the nWo. He rocked the name “Hollywood Hogan” in the group and made history with Hall and Nash for years.
Like Nash, Hogan was also devastated by the passing of Hall, who was best known for being the “Bad Guy” of the golden era of pro wrestling. At his Hogan’s Hangout bar in Tampa, Florida, “The Hulkster” paid his tribute to his old pal in a moving speech.
“A short while ago, a good friend of mine just passed away, Scott Hall,” Hogan said in a speech. “So in Jesus name I pray, thank you God for taking care of my brother.” said Hulk Hogan, “He took care of me when I was down and out and everyone thought Hulkamania was dead. Scott Hall resurrected me, he put me back on the map. I love him so much I can’t even explain it to you.”
“He had a bunch of faults but he was a good guy,” Hogan continued. “I just want everyone to know here that he’s in our thoughts and prayers tonight. He just passed. I had a real hard time getting my act together and getting over here. Bad times don’t last but bad guys do. For the original bad guy that took Hulk Hogan and taught Hollywood how to be a bad guy. I got nothing but love for life, brother.”
Hall truly left a lasting impression in the world of pro wrestling. It is no surprise that a wide array of WWE legends have been lamenting his untimely death. Among them were Triple H, Mick Foley and Hall’s former nemesis Shawn Michaels.
