Kevin Nash tells fans that best friend Scott Hall is getting taken off life support

Kevin Nash has announced the heart-breaking news that wrestling legend Scott Hall will be taken off life support once his family is in place.

Health issues had troubled Hall recently. The 63-year-old had hip surgery last week. Unfortunately, complications led to a loose blood clot, which in turn caused Hall to have three heart attacks. This devastating situation leaves Hall on life support.

An iconic wrestling figure of the 1990s, Hall rose to notoriety under the alias Razor Ramon. However, he is best known as one of the founding members of the iconic New World Order faction, along with Hulk Hogan and friend Kevin Nash.

Nash and Hall remain very close to this day, with Nash informing fans of Hall’s situation.

Kevin Nash posts to Instagram

Kevin Nash paid tribute to his NWO teammate on Instagram, writing a heartfelt statement.

“Scott’s on life support. Once his family is in place they will discontinue life support. I’m going to lose the one person on this planet I’ve spent more of my life with than anyone else. My heart is broken and I’m so very f*****g sad.

“I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present. I’ve been blessed to have a friend that took me at face value and I him. When we jumped to WCW we didn’t care who liked or hated us. We had each other and with the smooth Barry Bloom we changed wrestling both in content and pay for those…a lot that disliked us. We were the “Outsiders ” but we had each other.

“Scott always felt he wasn’t worthy of the afterlife. Well God please have some gold-plated toothpicks for my brother. My life was enriched with his take on life. He wasn’t perfect but as he always said, “The last perfect person to walk the planet they nailed to a cross. ” As we prepare for life without him, just remember there goes a great guy. You ain’t going to see another one like him again.

“See Ya down the road Scott. I couldn’t love a human being any more than I do you.”

A lasting legacy

Razor Ramon had an unforgettable impact on the wrestling world. Debuting in the WWE in 1992, he became one of their biggest stars as a member of the locker room group ‘The Kliq.’ In the ring, WWE fans will never forget his amazing victory over Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania X.

However, Hall’s notoriety rose following his switch to the WCW. Hall and buddy Kevin Nash surprised everyone with an unexpected appearance on WCW Monday Nitro, defecting from McMahon’s WWF.

Whilst in World Championship Wrestling, Scott Hall co-founded the single most iconic faction in wrestling history – the New World Order. The trio of Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, and Hulk Hogan ran riot throughout WCW, before returning to the WWE in 2002. Unfortunately, Hall’s return to WWE was short-lived, but included an entertaining loss to ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin at Wrestlemania X-8.

His lasting impact on the game was rewarded with two Hall of Fame entries. Razor Ramon entered the Hall of Fame as an individual in 2014 first. Following this, in 2020, the NWO were inducted, with Hall present alongside his fellow members.

Scott Hall’s previous health problems

Throughout his career, health problems plagued Hall. A neck injury whilst wrestling Jeff Jarrett in 2000 kept Hall out of action for a while. However, his personal issues with drugs and alcohol also caused serious health troubles.

Very open on his use, Hall has been to rehabilitation centres in the past, with the support of Vince McMahon. In addition to substance abuse, heart issues have caused Razor Ramon trouble. He had a pacemaker and defibrillator fitted to regulate cardiac problems according to the New York Post.
