It’s been confirmed that professional wrestler Scott Hall is now dead at age 63. The actor was taken off life support after suffering a series of heart attacks yesterday, the heart attacks occurred while he went into surgery for a broken hip.
As revealed via TMZ:
“Hall — AKA Razor Ramon — was placed on life support after experiencing serious medical issues related to a procedure on a broken hip … suffering three heart attacks on Saturday.”
His close friend and fellow professional wrestler, Kevin Nash, was the one to reveal that he’d been taken off life support. The move was made after his family had surrounded Scott Hall to say their final goodbyes, just hours before he was pronounced dead. It’s certainly a sad revelation, especially considering the massive impact that Scott Hall had on the wrestling industry. He’s been a major part of wrestling history throughout his career, and it’s clear that his death has been felt by the entire community and his many fans outside of his close friends and family.
WWE had the following statement:
“WWE is saddened to learn that two-time WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall has passed away. WWE extends its condolences to Hall’s family, friends and fans.”
Meanwhile, Kevin Nash shared some of the following sentiments on Instagram shortly before Scott Hall was taken off 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. I’ve been blessed to have a friend that took me at face value and I him.”
This is only a fragment of what Kevin Nash wrote when thinking of Scott Hall, and it’s clear that his presence will be severely missed. He was truly a great part of WWE and the lives of many.
The New World Order, a group which was co-founded by Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Hulk Hogan, was founded in 1996. The massive group eventually reunited for an appearance in 2015, where they surprised audiences with their return during WrestleMania 31. Soon after, the NWO would be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2020. This is just one of many accomplishments shared by Scott Hall throughout his career.
