Scott Hall’s Life And Career
Hall was born in Maryland and grew up an army brat, attending school in Germany. He then moved to Florida, where he began training under Dusty Rhodes, Mike Rotunda, and Barry Windham.
Hall became a reliable mid-card talent for the next year eight years, teaming with Curt Hennig, Diamond Dallas Page, and others.
However, Scott would reach the peak of his career when he became the Scarface-Esque Razor Ramon in WWF. As Ramon, Hall was involved in numerous high-profile feuds and became one of the longest-running Intercontinental Champions of all time.
His ladder match vs. Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania X is considered one of the greatest matches.
But Hall soon became dissatisfied with the amount of money he was making. Hall and Kevin Nash then jumped ship to WCW, where they became known as the “Outsiders.” Hall and Nash revolutionized wrestling, becoming the “cool” heels who beat up the good guys and still had the audience going crazy for them. The two would team up with Hulk Hogan to form the NWO.
The NWO was the zenith of Hall’s career as he was a regular in the main event and became one of the most popular wrestlers in the world.
However, towards the end of his time in WCW, Hall entered a downward spiral of drug and alcohol abuse that would see him become a shell of his former self. Hall would struggle to be in and out of rehab for nearly a decade, including multiple hospital stays of heart issues.
Finally, in 2013, Hall moved in with Diamond Dallas Page, who helped rehabilitate Hall. DDP organized a fundraiser that helped pay for Hall’s hip replacement and dental work.
He would then be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, giving one of the most iconic speeches in the ceremony’s history.

He was a true veteran of the business and always looked out for the guys coming up.
In Feb 2020 we had Scott Hall booked on a weekend loop split with another company, AIW students were responsible for driving him for the entire weekend. Scott Hall paid for every gallon of gas and every meal over three days because he said that is what vets are supposed to do.
