Scott Hall Death, Scott ‘Razor Ramon’ Hall Death : Scott Hall, WWE Pro wrestler known as Razor Ramon or Bad guy, a (WCW) New World Order champion has died at a hospital in Marietta, Georgia following complications from hip surgery. He was 63. Scott passing was made public on March 14, 2022
In the starting of Scott Hall Wrestling career, he had been wrestling professionally for several years before he perfected his best-known persona, Razor Ramon, for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in the early 1990s. He modeled the character on Al Pacino’s character from “Scarface,” Tony Montana, including modifying Montana’s catchphrase into his own: “Say hello to the bad guy.” Hall became known by the nickname “The Bad Guy” and led a team of wrestlers called the Bad Guys.
He won the WWF Intercontinental Championship four times in the mid-‘90s. Hall left WWF for WCW in 1996, dropping the Razor Ramon persona and forming the New World Order stable of heels along with Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash. Hall was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame both as Razor Ramon and as a member of the New World Order.
Hall spoke out about his struggles with addiction, stemming back to an incident when he was a young bartender and shot and killed a man in an altercation. He was charged with second-degree murder, though the charges were dropped due to evidence, and Hall said he was plagued with PTSD in the wake of the event.
He turned to drugs and alcohol, which became such a part of his life that WCW worked them into a storyline in which he purportedly wrestled while drunk. Hall later worked toward getting sober with the help of friends from the wrestling industry.
Tributes and sharing on Scott’s passing
I’m saddened to hear of the passing of Scott Hall. I wasn’t very close with Scott in his later years, but upon reflection, I can flashback to many happy and fun memories of the days when he was my friend. I think Scott carried many heavy crosses long before I ever knew him. He was a good friend to Owen long before he became Razor Ramon.
Wrestling life can be so much fun, and at the same time, it can take all you have at the same time. I will always remember Scott in the better times with his cool, dry sense of humour while playing gently with my sons. We had many matches and he was a hard worker. I loved my matches with him at Royal Rumble and the first King of the Ring in 1993. I fondly look back on so many terrific matches he had with Owen, Davey Boy, Sean Waltman (123 Kid), and Shawn Michaels.
We’ve lost so many wrestlers from my era, and this is just one more to a list that’s far too long. I won’t blame any one thing, but I do believe that if the days of wrestling 300 days a year had been kinder and more considerate, if we could’ve been home with our loved ones more, many of my old friends and brothers would still be here. I think Scott would smile to know that so many people really loved him and will truly miss him. One more wrestler. A fine machine gone too soon. My thoughts and prayer go out to his family, friends, and loved ones.
Rest In Peace Scott Hall. All of my deepest sympathies, prayers, strength, and love go to your children, your family & friends, brothers, and all of your loved ones. I am so sorry. The legacy you’ve left and the impact you had on this industry with be remembered forever. I imagine you walking through the pearly gates just like this with a pearl toothpick in hand.
I never saw Scott Hall in this light until it was too late, but that never stopped my appreciation for him and what he did for the industry. Man it fucking sucks when heroes die. https://t.co/G9KRUusY79

My heart goes out to the family & friends of Scott Hall (aka “Razor Ramon”), who passed away yesterday at 63. I was a big fan of his days in the AWA as 1/2 of the AWA World Tag Team Champions with Curt Hennig (aka “Mr. Perfect”). #RIPScottHall pic.twitter.com/nZ6dH6u0Ij
