Scott Hall: WWE/WCW Icon on Life Support Following Surgery, Heart Attacks
Scott Hall, the WWE Hall of Famer and WCW wrestler, is on life support following complications stemming from hip surgery.
First reported by PWTorch, Hall underwent hip replacement surgery last week and then had three heart attacks last night (March 12) due to a blood clot that occurred following the hip surgery. TMZ would go on to confirm that Hall is on life support “according to sources familiar with the situation.”
Hall’s wrestling career spans multiple decades. He first broke through in the then WWF in 1992 as Razor Ramon, a character heavily inspired by Tony Montana from the 1983 film Scarface. Hall, along with Kevin Nash, would become two of the most important forces in “The Monday Night War” when they jumped from WWF to rival wrestling promotion WCW. Hall and Nash would soon after form the iconic stable the New World Order (nWo) with Hulk Hogan.
Hall would exit WCW in 2000 and have a short stint in New Japan Pro Wrestling before returning to the WWF in February 2002. His stint with WWF would also be short and resulted in him leaving for Total Nonstop Action Wrestling later that year where he would stay until 2008. After multiple brief stints in other promotions, he would land back at the now WWE where he was inducted twice into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014 as his Razor Ramon character and then in 2020 as a member of the nWo.
