Hall was known for his time in WWE and WCW. He debuted in WWE as Razor Ramon and eventually went by his real name in WCW.
Ramon would win the Intercontinental Championship on several occasions. Also, he is credited with winning the first WWE ladder match that aired on TV.
Then, he he made major noise in 1996. He jumped ship, joining WCW and securing a guaranteed contract with some high figures.
Basically, fans were witnessing the wrestling landscape change. First, we were starting to see wrestlers leave companies for their rival over pay.
Second, we were watching the birth of the NWO. The stable would go on and change wrestling, with some saying it killed WCW.
“You know who I am, but you don’t know why I’m here.”

WWE – Saudi Arabia
So, with the pandemic somewhat under control, WWE is back to hosting events in Saudi Arabia. Honestly, they make so much from the deal that it is hard to pass working with the controversial country.
PWInsider confirmed WWE is headed back in the fall. They will either run a show the last week of October or the first week of November.
There is Halloween, so WWE might want to avoid that date. There is no word on what date the show might air.
At one time, there was a report WWE would be back in September for TLC. That was not confirmed, but WWE could pull off two shows within a six weeks.
It would be a nightmare for the entire staff with the long trip, but WWE is behind on shows because the pandemic cancelled a few.
WWE was in Saudi Arabia in February for Elimination Chamber. Typically, they make two trips a year as part of the 10 year deal.
