The World Wrestling Entertainment confirmed on Monday that Scott Hall has died at 63.
“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,” the company posted on Twitter.
Hall’s longtime friend and teammate, Kevin Nash, explained on his Instagram on Sunday that Hall had been taken off life support after experiencing severe health problems following a hip-replacement surgery in Marietta, Georgia earlier this month.
“My heart is broken,” Nash expressed.
Hall joined the pro-wrestling world in the 1980s. He rose to fame in 1992 after joining the WWE, then known as the World Wrestling Federation, with the Razor Ramon persona, a toothpick-chewing Cuban-American heavy nicknamed “The Bad Guy.”
In 1996, Hall and Nash became a duo known as the Outsiders at the World Championship Wrestling. They created the bad-boy group New World Order or NWO with Hulk Hogan, which helped establish the WCW’s success and high-profile rivalry with WWE.
By 2001, WWE had bought WCW, which prompted Hall’s return to pro-wrestling in 2002. He won multiple championships, which earned him two spots at the WWE Hall of Fame, one granted to him in 2014 and another in 2020, alongside NWO.
Hall is survived by his two children, son Cody Taylor and daughter Cassidy Lee.
