Razor Ramon was paid a tribute.

Tribute was paid to WWE star Scott “Razor Ramon” Hall, who died at 63. World Wrestling Entertainment tweeted that they were “saddened” by his death after news of his poor health broke over the weekend.   

His friend and former wrestling partner Kevin Nash said Monday that Scott’s life support will be “off” once his family is “in place.” “I have to prepare now for life without him,” Kevin wrote Monday. “I’m lucky to have a friend who accepts my face.”

Mick Foley wrote that Scott was “a legend in and out of the ring”. Shane McMahon wrote that he was “perhaps the greatest who has ever competed on the square circle”. Before the news of Scott’s death, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson tweeted, “We need to get the ‘bad boy’ back in the game,” referring to Scott’s 2014 Hall of Fame speech.   

Scott Hall’s career spanned three decades from 1984 until his retirement in 2016. He signed with WWE, then known as the World Wrestling Federation, in 1992 and began wrestling under the name Razor Ramon. His nickname became “The Bad Boy”, and his slogan “Say hello to the bad guy” was inspired by a line from Al Pacino’s character Tony Montana in the movie Scarface.   

He left the WWF in 1996 to join rival promoter World Championship Wrestling (WCW), where he co-founded the New World Order with Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash. Scott has won numerous titles throughout his career, including four WWF Intercontinental Championships, two WCW U.S. Heavyweight Championships, one WCW World Television Championship and nine WCW World Tag Team Championships. As a member of the Class of 2014, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and will be a member of the NWO again in 2020.
