Several WWE stars took to social media following the tragic passing of wrestler Scott Hall, AKA Razor Ramon, who died on March 14 at the age of 63. The WWE Hall of Famer was taken off life support following complications arising from an unsuccessful hip surgery.

The WWE remembered Hall through an official post on their website, as well as via a touching tribute video posted to social media. The statement by the WWE read, “A hugely influential Superstar, Hall began his career in 1984, performing with various organizations across the country before joining World Championship Wrestling in 1991 as The Diamond Studd. In 1992, Hall signed with WWE and introduced fans all over the world to the character of Razor Ramon, becoming a four-time Intercontinental Champion and one of the most enduring personas of WWE’s ‘New Generation.’”

The tweet from the WWE read, "The WWE family will forever remember Scott Hall as a gifted entertainer and 2-time WWE Hall of Famer, a loving father and a dear friend," shared along with a video that included Hall’s greatest moments throughout his wrestling career.

Prior to his passing, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson tweeted out a message of support. He wrote, “Scott Hall, pulling for you my friend. Stay strong! We need the ‘bad guy’ back in the game.”

Hogan mourned the loss of Hall in a speech at his Hogan’s Hangout Bar in Florida, according to ESPN. He shared, "A short while ago, a good friend of mine just passed away -- Scott Hall. He took care of me when I was down and out and when everyone thought Hulkamania was dead. Scott Hall resurrected me. He put me back on the map. ... I love him so much I can't even explain it to you"

Former pro-wrestler William Regal wrote on Twitter in memory of Hall, “In ‘89, I spent five weeks in Germany with Scott Hall. We got on. In ’91, I was on a tryout for one day for WCW in the UK and although he would never admit it, he kept me on the five-day tour. My deepest condolences to Scott’s family. Rest well, pal.”

Fellow WWE Hall of Famer SGT Slaughter tweeted, “Sad to hear [about] the passing of Scott Hall. I remember when Curt Hennig asked if I could get Scott booked in WWE. After an introduction to Vince McMahon, ‘Razor’ was created and the rest is history. ‘Hey Yo’, I guess God needed a good, ‘Bad Guy’. RIP, my friend.”

Famous WWE star Triple H also mourned the loss of Hall, writing, I’m gutted. Lost a brother. I love you, Scott! I’ll see you down the road.”

Wrestler Sting remembered the late Razor Ramon, writing, Heartbreaking, HUGE loss. He definitely made us all better - helped me with that one-of-a-kind Scott Hall insight. So many ‘Too Sweet’ memories. Scott, you will be missed.”

Hall’s former tag-team partner Kevin Nash took to social media recently to share that he was gravely ill and that he would soon be taken off life support.

‘Razor Ramon’ was a double inductee into the WWE hall of fame who started off his career in the mid-1980s. The wrestler broke his hip due to a fall last month and had been hospitalised. He was put on life support following complications after surgery to fix his hip. According to PW Torch, Hall suffered three heart attacks while trying to recover from the unsuccessful surgery. The heart attacks were due to a loose blood clot that formed following surgery-related complications.

Born on October 20, 1958, Hall began his pro-wrestling career in 1984 in Champion Wrestling of Florida. Joining the WWF in 1992, Hall took on the moniker ‘Razor Ramon’ which was described as “Miami-Cuban character based on Scarface”. He also founded the New World Order (nWo) alongside famed wrestler Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash.

Hall won the WWF Intercontinental title four times, as well as seven tag-team titles in the WCW. Six of these tag-teams were with his long-time partner Nash.

The Instagram post announcing Hall’s condition by Nash read, “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 sad.”

“I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare [for] my life without him in the present. I've been blessed to have a friend that took me at face value and I him.”

He added, “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.”
