BREAKING NEWS – Former WWE and WCW star Scott Hall aka Razor Ramon has tragically passed away at the age of 63.

World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) confirmed the sad news Monday afternoon, saying: ‘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.

Hall had been on life support at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, Ga, as reported by PWTorch, after suffering three heart attacks.

The 2-time WWE Hall of Famer had hip replacement surgery last week but suffered a serious complication when a blood clot got loose, according to the news site.

Prior to the sad death of the man affectionately known as the “Bad Guy”, wrestling fans and industry stars alike had flooded social with well wishes.

Despite struggling with substance abuse for much of his career, Hall was hugely popular and accomplished a lot during his time in the squared circle.

He will probably be best remembered for his time in WCW where he formed the industry-changing NWO stable with long-time tag-team partner Kevin Nash and wrestling mega-star Hulk Hogan.

Before that, he rose to national and international prominence as Razor Ramon in WWF/WWE. However, his shocking jump to WCW alongside Nash as The Outsiders helped increase ratings for WCW and spark the Monday Night Wars.

If Hall and Nash had not jumped ship to the competition then WWF/WWE would never have had the Attitude Era, the most successful period in the company’s history.

Prior to Hall’s death, Kevin Nash released a heartbreaking update where he revealed that his tag team partner’s life support would be “discontinued” once Scott’s family was in place.

Speaking via Instagram Nash wrote:

Scott’s on life support. Once his family is in place they will discontinue 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 !*$% 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. When we jumped to WCW we didn’t care who liked or hated us. We had each other and with the smooth Barry Bloom we changed wrestling both in content and pay for those……alot that disliked us. We were the “Outsiders ” but we had each other. Scott always felt he wasn’t worthy of the afterlife. Well God please have some gold plated toothpicks for my brother. My life was enriched with his take on life. He wasn’t perfect but as he always said “The last perfect person to walk the planet they nailed to a cross ” As we prepare for life without him just remember there goes a great guy you ain’t going to see another one like him again. See Ya down the road Scott. I couldn’t love a human being any more than I do you

Although Hall never won the big one in any of the companies he worked in, he was a four-time Intercontinental Champion in WWF/WWE and a multi-time tag champion. He also won the United States Heavyweight Championship in WCW, twice.

“Hard work pays off, dreams come true. Bad times don’t last, but bad guys do…” RIP Scott Hall
