Scott Hall, Arsenal

Arsenal paid tribute to WWE legend Scott Hall at half-time during the Premier League clash with Liverpool.

On March 14th, WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall sadly passed away. The star had previously been in hospital after breaking his hip, but complications and three heart attacks left him on life support.

As Monday Night Raw went live, the show opened with a graphic paying homage to Hall, breaking the news that he had passed away. Throughout the show, and on social media, tributes poured in to the man who made being the bad guy, look so very cool.

Premier League club Arsenal have now paid their own tribute to the star, playing his Razor Ramon theme music at half-time during their recent match with Liverpool.

Arsenal have a history with playing WWE theme songs, with the players previously walking out to John Cena’s theme, and Edge’s iconic track Metalingus by Alter Bridge.

Scott Hall began his career in the CWF in 1984, before moving to the AWA a year later, winding up in WCW in 1989. However, Hall found success hard to come by, breaking away from WCW at the end of year, heading to a number of promotions including New Japan Pro Wrestling.

By 1991 he was back in WCW as the Diamond Studd, but it wasn’t until he switched to the WWF in 1992, that Hall got his big break. Wrestling as Razor Ramon, with a heavy influence of the character Tony Montana from Scarface, Hall rose up the card, enjoying numerous Intercontinental Championship reigns.

During this spell, Hall defeated Shawn Michaels in a highly acclaimed Ladder Match at WrestleMania X. In 1996, Scott Hall jumped back to WCW, launching an ‘invasion’ which included bringing in his friend Kevin Nash. Both men had left the WWF weeks earlier, following the now infamous ‘Curtain call.’

Reunited with Nash in WCW, the Outsiders were involved in one of the most famous angles in history at Bash at the Beach, where Hulk Hogan turned heel to join the pair, creating the nWo.

All three men returned to the WWF in 2002, before going their separate ways, Hall ending up in TNA, now known as IMPACT Wrestling.

Scott Hall was inducted in to the WWE Hall of Famer as Razor Ramon in 2014, and again in the Class of 2020, as part of the nWo.
