5 Greatest Scott Hall Matches Of All Time

Scott Hall

Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall sadly passed away on March 14, 2022 at the age of 63.

‘The Bad Guy’ enjoyed a long wrestling career, which began in 1984 and saw Hall still make sporadic in-ring appearances as recently as the early to mid-2010s.

His big break came when he joined the WWF in late 1992 as ‘Razor Ramon’, a character patterned after Tony Montana from the 1983 film, Scarface. Razor quickly became one of the biggest stars of the Federation’s New Generation era and won four Intercontinental Titles, before jumping to WCW in mid-1996.

Hall, under his real name, enjoyed even further success down south, as he and fellow defector, Kevin Nash formed the ground-breaking New World Order faction, with Hulk Hogan. He was a major part of WCW supplanting the WWF as the premier wrestling promotion in the world.

This feature looks back at the five greatest matches of Hall’s career, all of which occurred during his 1994-1999 peak.

#5 with 1-2-3 Kid vs. Shawn Michaels & Diesel – Action Zone (October 30, 1994)

Razor and Kid versus Diesel and Michaels

Westchester County Center was bouncing as Razor Ramon and his tag team partner, The 1-2-3 Kid challenged WWF Tag Team Champions, Diesel and Shawn Michaels for the straps.

As all four participants were fully paid up members of backstage gang, The Kliq, co-operation was key and every wrestler did everything in their power to make everyone else look good.

Packed with innovative moves and devastating counters, the foursome contested their one and only bout together at an electric pace.

The heel combo of Diesel and Michaels eventually managed to sneak a win and retain their titles.

#4 vs. Sting – Uncensored (March 15, 1998)

Scott Hall versus Sting

Scott Hall won the 60-Man Battle Royal at World War 3, on November 23, 1997, earning himself a crack at the WCW World Title.

That match took place at Uncensored, opposite the newly crowned World Champion, Sting.

Typical of the era, the bout was replete with shenanigans and outside interference. The title match perfectly built to a crescendo and their were near falls aplenty down the home stretch. The finish came when Sting countered the Outsider’s Edge into a Scorpion Death Drop for the win. The live crowd came unglued for that one.

A greatly entertaining match. One of Hall’s best WCW singles outings.

#3 vs. Goldberg – Souled Out (January 17, 1999)

Scott Hall versus Goldberg

Scott Hall and a taser were responsible for terminating Goldberg’s 173 match undefeated streak and WCW World Heavyweight Title reign at Starrcade 1998 on December 27, that year.

One week later, nWo Hollywood and nWo Wolfpac reunited to form a new nWo supergroup. A match was signed between a vengeful, Goldberg and Hall at the January pay-per-view Souled Out.

In the first Ladder Match on this list, Hall carried Goldberg to a thrilling battle as they fought over a taser that sat above the ring.

‘Da Man’ nailed Hall with his Spear and Jackhammer combo, before blasting him with the taser to win the match.

One of the final great performances of Hall’s career.

#2 vs. Shawn Michaels – WrestleMania X (March 20, 1994)

Razor versus Michaels WM X

Much has been written about the WrestleMania X match and there are few new superlatives to describe how innovative and thrilling the first ever televised Ladder Match in WWF history was.

Shawn Michaels had been stripped of the Intercontinental Title in October of 1993 and Razor Ramon had captured the vacant strap, which set up a bout to decide who the true Intercontinental Champion was.

Although tamer than more contemporary Ladder Matches, their WrestleMania X battle told a fascinating story as both men utilised the sole ladder as a weapon in increasingly innovative style.

Razor claimed both belts after he trapped Michaels in the ropes, ascended the ladder and retrieved the titles.

#1 vs. Shawn Michaels – SummerSlam (August 27, 1995)

Razor versus Michaels SummerSlam 1995

In a rarity, the Ladder Match re-match between Razor Ramon and Shawn Michaels was actually greater than the original.

On this occasion it was Michaels who put his Intercontinental Title on the line and it was ‘The Heartbreak Kid’ who came out on top, successfully defended his gold.

The match built upon the WrestleMania X match, by revisiting previous spots which rewarded the viewer. All 25 minutes of action were blistering and riskier than the original.

The finish came when Razor attempted to nail Michaels with the Razor’s Edge, but was backdropped over the top rope as ‘The Showstopper’ successfully ascended the ladder and grabbed the Intercontinental Title.

Although he was on the losing end of the match-up; the bout was the finest of ‘The Bad Guy’s’ entire career.
