It’s a sad day in the world of professional wrestling.
Former wrestler and World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Famer Scott Hall, who reached stardom as “Razor Ramon” during the heyday of his career in the 1990s, has died, according to the WWE.
“WWE is saddened to learn that two-time WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall has passed away. WWE extends its condolences to Hall’s family, friends and fans,” the WWE said in a tweet on Monday. He had been on life support for multiple days.
After falling and breaking a hip in early March, he had hip replacement surgery but suffered complications due to a blood clot that got loose following the surgery, according to pro-wrestling website PW Torch.
On last night’s episode of Monday Night RAW, a video tribute played for Hall, after which there was a massive ovation and chants of “Razor” from the sellout Jacksonville crowd.
Scott Hall’s career spanned three decades from 1984 until he retired in 2016. He was a multi-time world tag team champion across the WWF and WCW, and, along with Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan, was a founding member of the New World Order, a stable which changed the face of professional wrestling.
