Jeff Jarrett became king of wrestling’s mountain several times with four WCW and six NWA World Titles to his name, now he has discussed being sure why Scott Hall never had a single run as the champion in any promotion.
Scott Hall burst onto the World Wrestling Federation scene in 1992 as Razor Ramon and quickly entangled himself in the ongoing feud between Ric Flair and Randy Savage for the WWF Title. Ramon then challenged Bret Hart for that title at Royal Rumble 1993 in a losing effort. This was as close as Ramon would get to WWF Championship gold during his run with the company that ended in the spring of 1996.
A well-documented move to World Championship Wrestling followed for Hall and he helped rejuvenate the entire wrestling business alongside Kevin Nash and Hollywood Hogan in the nWo. Despite the success, the nWo brought WCW and despite Hogan and Nash both being multiple time WCW Champions, the stars never aligned for Hall to have a run with that title either.
One man who knows Hall well is his old Intercontinental Title rival, Jeff Jarrett. Speaking on his My World podcast, Jarrett discussed reaching out to Hall when he was in the midsts of founding TNA. Jarrett adds that he can’t shine any light either on why Hall never said hello to a world title.
“I don’t recall exactly but my gut tells me I would’ve reached out to him. The Jeff Jarrett – Razor Ramon relationship was pretty deep and travelled a lot of miles with him and all that, when he became available, I definitely remember I was super excited. I think to this day for him not to have been a World Champion, to me is sort of a head-scratcher. He had it all. I was very excited and my dad and him always had a great relationship, I was very excited to get the opportunity to have him on board.”
“Me and Scott were [talking] ‘Scott, we’re not talking about locking you up, you know creatively what I think about you, we’re going to take care of you.’ He wanted to know what I was doing, and I was like ‘Dude, trust me.’ We knew each other, I was going to take care of him creatively, and here’s the dates and here’s the money.”
Hall did join TNA in its infancy appearing on their first weekly pay-per-view show. This came after Hall’s ill-fated return to WWE as part of the nWo alongside Nash and Hogan. Hall’s time there came to an end after the infamous plane ride from hell.
Scott Hall recently discussed another controversial moment in wrestling history, the Curtain Call in Madison Square Garden and says Shawn Michaels left good friend Triple H to carry the can for that in the eyes of Vince McMahon.
