About Scott Hall
One of the most important wrestlers of the 1990s era, Scott Hall initially wrestled for several promotions in the mid-1980s. He rose to prominence after making his WWF debut as Razor Ramon that was a ‘Bad Guy’ character. He won four intercontinental championships during the first tenure with the WWF and became a fierce rival with Shawn Michaels. The ladder match to determine the Intercontinental champion at WrestleMania X is one of the most memorable fights in the WWE history.
Scott Hall and Kevin Nash became close friends during their first stint in the WWF. The duo made a risky move to the WCW in 1996 as invading forces ‘The Outsiders’ trying to take over the scene. This resulted in WCW’s historic 83-week domination of the WWF on the Monday night ratings. Hulk Hogan joined Hall and Nash later to form the NWO (New World Order).
Scott Hall and Kevin Nash won the WCW tag team title seven times. Hall also had one tag team title reign with Big Show (then known as Giant). In addition to this, he won the WCW US championship twice and Television championship once.
Scott Hall was inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014. The NWO was inducted in the Hall of Fame in 2020. Fitness Volt wishes Scott Hall’s family and friends all the strength to cope up with a loss of their loved one.
