Hulk Hogan has broken his silence following the death of his partner in the highly-acclaimed New World Order, Scott Hall.

Monday Night Raw opened with a graphic in memory of Scott Hall, and WWE confirmed on Twitter that the legend had indeed passed away at the age of 63. A tribute video package played in the middle of the episode, highlighting Hall’s career and his influence on the wrestling business, with many WWE stars paying tribute to Hall throughout the show as well.

Hall had reportedly suffered three heart attacks while undergoing surgery for a broken hip with his long-time friend and tag team partner Kevin Nash confirming that Hall’s life support was to be “discontinued” when his family was “in place.”

Now, the third man that joined Hall and Nash to form the notorious New World Order in WCW in 1996 Hulk Hogan has given his first public comment on Hall’s passing. In a video shared on social media, Hogan addressed fans at his Hogan’s Hangout bar in Tampa, Florida as he paid tribute to Scott Hall:

“Hey yo! We appreciate every one of you Hulkamaniacs, for life, brother. A short while ago, a good friend of mine just passed away. So, in Jesus’ name I pray, thank you God for taking care of my brother.”

“He took care of me when I was down and out, and everyone thought Hulkamania was dead. Scott Hall resurrected me. He put me back on the map. I love him so much, I can’t even explain it to you. He had a bunch of faults, but he was a good guy. I just wanted to let everyone know that he’s in our thoughts and prayers tonight.”

“After I heard he passed, I had a real hard time getting my act together and getting over here. But bad times don’t last, bad guys do. If Scott Hall were here with us, he’d party with us. Believe me! He would party all night long, brothers.”

Many other wrestling stars of all generations have also been paying tribute to the late Scott Hall on social media.
