Scott Hall, RIP


Scott Hall, WWE Hall of Famer and co-founder of pro wrestling’s legendary New World Order faction, died on Monday after being taken off of life support by his family following complications from hip surgery. He was 63.

He was the man who kicked off the biggest boom period in the history of professional wrestling. Along with Shawn Michaels, he innovated the ladder match, now a staple of the sport.

His life behind the scenes was filled with constant struggles with substance abuse and personal demons, run-ins with the law, and sexual misconduct allegations. In 2013, Diamond” Dallas Page invited him to live at his home and get clean. A year after moving in with Page, Hall was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and would be inducted again in 2020 as a member of the nWo alongside Hogan, Nash and X-Pac.

His acceptance speech was amazing. Bad times don’t last, but bad guys do.

Whether you knew him best as the Diamond Studd, as Razor Ramon, or simply as himself, Da Bad Guy” was always one of the coolest wrestlers to ever set foot in the ring.
