The wrestling world is in deep mourning in the wake of the news that WWE legend, Scott Hall, has died at the age of 63. Hall passed away following complications from recent hip surgery, per Deadline.

Hall, known to fans as Razor Ramon, Hall was placed on life support after experiencing serious medical complications related to a procedure on a broken hip. He broke his hip in a fall this month and was hospitalized, according to a social media post by ex-wrestler and promoter Jerry Jarret. Hall suffered three heart attacks on Saturday and the situation grew more serious from there. Hall’s good friend and fellow wrestler Kevin Nash said that the family intended to take him off life support once his loved ones were able to say goodbye one last time. The news of his passing was made public late Monday night.

Born on October 20, 1958, in Maryland, Hall began his popular career as a wrestler with the National Wrestling Alliance in 1984. He went on to make a name for himself with World Championship Wrestling and World Wrestling Federation in the 1990s. As Razor Ramon, he was well-known for his signature toothpick throw, which became a fan-favorite move over the years. Arguably his biggest match came against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania X in a ladder match for the intercontinental title. Hall was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014.

In 1996, alongside Nash and Hulk Hogan, Hall co-founded the New World Order in 1996, which became a massive success in the industry. The group reunited in 2015 where they took the stage at Wrestlemania 31. The New World Order was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2020.

Kevin Nash wrote an Instagram post about Scott Hall that shows just how close these two were. You can check out that post below and our thoughts are with his family and many fans during this difficult time. R.I.P.
