Legendary wrestler Scott Hall, a.k.a. Razor Ramon, has been confirmed dead, days after being placed on life support.
According to the reports, WWE star died at the age of 63 on Monday, March 14. His death was confirmed by fellow Hall of Famer and good friend, Sean Waltman, better known as X-Pac. “He’s gone.” Waltman tweeted.
“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,” Waltman said.
It was gathered that the wrestler who underwent surgery last week, suffered a serious setback when a blood clot got loose.
Hall reportedly suffered three heart attacks on March 12 and was being treated at a medical facility in Georgia. Hall was reportedly still “fighting” hours after being removed from life support.
Hall’s death definitely is the end of an era given that he played a key role in popularizing the sport in the 1990s. However, he gained popularity long before that.
Hall began his professional wrestling career in 1984 with the National Wrestling Alliance and went on to make a name for himself in the 1990s with World Championship Wrestling and the World Wrestling Federation.
He was born in Maryland on October 20, 1958, and grew up in a military family that moved frequently. He attended high school in Munich, Germany. Hall’s substance usage issues were included in a WCW storyline, but he also blamed them for many arrests over the course of his nearly 30-year career.
