LEGENDARY Wrestler Scott Hall has passed away – days after being put on life support.
The 63-year-old Hall of Fame, who portrayed the character Razor Ramon, passed away on Monday, March 14.
His death was confirmed by a farmer and good friend, Sean Waltman, better known as the X-Pac. “He’s gone. ” Waltman tweeted.
“WWE is deeply saddened to learn that two-time WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall has passed away,” tweeted WWE to pay tribute to the star.
“WWE sends its condolences to Hall’s family, friends and fans.”
Hall is said to have suffered three heart attacks on March 12 and is being treated at a medical facility in Georgia.
He underwent hip surgery last week but is said to have suffered a serious setback when the blood clot was dislodged, according to PWTorch.
Kevin Nash, a member of the New World Order team with Hall, said doctors will turn off life support once the wrestler’s family is with him.
In a heartbreaking Instagram post, he said: “I am about to lose the only person on this planet with whom I have spent more of my life than anyone else. My heart is broken and I am so sad.
“I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare for my life without him right now.”
Nash says he’s “lucky” to know Hall as a friend.
He added: “As we prepare for life without him, just remember there is a great guy out there that you won’t meet another like him. See you soon Scott. I can’t love a human more than me. “
Hall was a multiple-time WWE Intercontinental Champion during his time with WWE, as “The Bad Guy,” Razor Ramon.
He became a major event star in the mid-1980s when he teamed up with Curt Hennig on AWA.
He is considered by many to have revolutionized the ladder game after his famous encounter with Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania X in 1994.
Hall is arguably one of WCW’s biggest stars, founding The Outsiders with Kevin Nash and helping bring the company to prominence.
He is also part of the New World Order faction alongside Nash and legendary star Hulk Hogan.
The superstar was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014 under the leadership of Razor Ramon.
In his previous introductory video, Hogan said Hall being the bad guy was “cool”.
The star said he feels a “definite power” when he steps into the wrestling ring and entertains fans.
In his acceptance speech, Hall said, “Bad times don’t last, but the bad guys do.”
Hall was introduced for the second time as part of the NWO group.
RIP TO THE BAD BAD
Over the past few days, many wrestlers have sent Hall best wishes for a speedy recovery but now they are expressing their condolences with the news of his passing.
“It doesn’t seem real. RIP Scott. You are a light,” wrote WWE Hall of Famer Nikki Bella.
“I will cherish our memories, advertising will always be grateful for your words and encouragement.”
Natalya Neidhart, daughter of Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, shared a photo of herself and Hall backstage at a WWE event.
“Times like these are never easy but I know there are so many great people waiting for you on the other side, ‘Bad Guy.’ she writes.
On the March 14 episode of Monday Night Raw, WWE Superstar Kevin Owens paid tribute to Hall in an in-ring commercial.
While addressing the crowd, Owens said “Hey yo”, a reference to Hall’s character Razor Ramon, who used the same greeting.
“I grieve… Losing a brother,” Paul “Triple H” Levesque says. “I love you Scott!! See you on the road…”
Hall was described by the WWE Hall of Famer as “a figure towering among his contemporaries – a legend in and out of the ring” Mick Foley.
