Two-time WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall, who rose to prominence in the 1990s as Razor Ramon, has died aged 63. The World Wrestling Entertainment, on its official website, said, “WWE is saddened to learn that two-time WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall has passed away. WWE extends its condolences to Hall’s family, friends and fans.” The WWE superstar began his career in 1984 before joining the WCW (World Championship Wrestling) as ‘The Diamond Studd’ in 1991.
WWE fans were introduced to the iconic heel ‘Razor Ramon’ in 1992. He went on to become a four-time Intercontinental champion.
In 1996, Hall joined the Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash as founding members of nWo (New World Order) after rejoining WCW.
On Tuesday morning, WWE paid homage to the pro-wrestling legend on Twitter.
“Bad times don’t last, but bad guys do,” WWE wrote quoting one of Razor Ramon’s favourite lines, along with a picture of Scott Hall wearing a nWo t-shirt.

According to New York Post, 63-year-old Hall underwent hip replacement surgery last week but suffered serious complications due to a loose blood clot.
The surgery took place after Hall suffered a broken hip.
“After retiring from the ring, Hall capped off a one-of-a-kind career by being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame as Razor Ramon in 2014 and again as a member of the nWo in 2020,” wrote WWE on their official website.
