It has been reported that Hall broke his hip earlier in March and the injury required surgery. However, complications leading to blood clots saw Hall suffering from three heart attacks. This weekend, he was placed on life support in Marietta, Georgia. Hall’s longtime friend and former tag-team partner Kevin Nash kept fans updated on Instagram over the weekend. He shared a photo and the news that “Scott’s on life support. Once his family is in place they will discontinue life support.” Faced with this impending loss, Nash added, “I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present.”

Hall was nicknamed The Bad Guy and played up to the image of a newcomer arriving in time to stir the pot, forming the Outsiders, joined by Nash as well as Hulk Hogan as the New World Order (nWo). In addition to successfully playing to the fanfare and pageantry of professional wrestling, Hall also accumulated several championship wins under his belt.
Hall was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame first as Razor Ramon in 2014, then again in 2021 as part of the nWo. “Hard work pays off,” Hall said in his famous induction speech. “Dreams come true. Bad times don’t last, but bad guys do.” Rest in peace, Scott Hall.
