On March 1st it was revealed that Scott Hall was in hospital after breaking his hip. However, in recent days it was confirmed that Hall’s condition has significantly worsened following complications after surgery. The report stated that Hall had suffered three heart attacks and had been placed on life support.
Kevin Nash then posted an update on social media, sharing the sad news that his long-time friend would be taken off life support when his family had arrived by his side. In the post, Nash paid tribute to “The Bad Guy,” writing that his heart was broken.
Despite this, it has now been reported that Scott Hall was taken off life support and he continues to battle on. The report from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, has since been corroborated by another of Hall’s friends, Sean Waltman, who said that the news was true.

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.
Inside The Ropes would like to send our best wishes to Scott Hall and his family and friends during this difficult time.
