Scott Hall dies: WWE Hall of Famer was 63 years old
Hall began his professional wrestling career in 1984. Hall joined the WWF in 1992 as Razor Ramon. During his time with the company, Ramon was part of perhaps one of the most important matches in wrestling history in 1994, when he took on Shawn Michaels in a ladder match at WrestleMania 10 for the Intercontinental Championship. Ramon won that match in Madison Square Garden in New York City to become the undisputed Intercontinental Champion.
He joined WCW in 1996, where he and Nash showed up on television as The Outsiders. At Bash at the Beach 1996, they took on Randy Savage, Sting and Lex Luger in a six-man tag team match, where Hulk Hogan revealed himself as “the third man.” That was when the nWo was formed, becoming one of the most popular wrestling factions in history.
Hall is a former four-time Intercontinental Champion, a seven-time WCW World Tag Team Champion, two-time WCW United States Heavyweight Champion and a one-time WCW World Television Champion.
He was inducted into the WWE twice, in 2014 as Razor Ramon and in 2021 as a member of the nWo. Here is the memorable words that Hall said during his 2014 induction:
We send our condolences to Hall’s family and friends during this time.
