Alongside the heartfelt messages from Hall’s former friends and foes, a number of his most significant moments in the ring have resurfaced.

However, one of Hall’s most infamous moments in the ring came when a missile hit him from the crowd.

In trademark fashion, Hall’s reaction to the attack displayed his true character. Laughing off the incident, he slicked back his hair and continued to stare straight at the camera. Unphased by the assault, Hall simply shrugged his shoulders in reaction to it. The sequence typifies the kind of cool that Hall oozed.

Soda incident not the only iconic Scott Hall moment

It came when the tide was beginning to turn for wrestling in America. Hall became one of many wrestlers to ditch WWF for WCW in the 1990s, forming part of the New World Order faction. Alongside fellow founding members Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash, Hall has been credited with ushering in an era of change for the sport.

The soda incident represented just one iconic moment in the career of Razor Ramon. Coupled with his ice-cold persona, Hall boasted some of the coolest moves in the game. One particular fans’ favourite is the way he’d wipe his hands after pulling off a fall-away slam.

As a two-time WWE Hall of Famer, it’s safe to say wrestling will never forget Hall’s impact on the sport. Equally loved by fellow fighters and fans alike, the news of his passing has stunned the wrestling community.
