The 63-year-old, also known by his stage name Razor Ramon, faced severe complications during hip replacement surgery on Saturday evening. A report by PWTorch stated that Hall endured three heart attacks during the procedure at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, which resulted from a loose blood clot.
Updating fans in a heart-wrenching social media post, Hall’s close friend and nWo teammate Kevin Nash said that family members were preparing to end his life support.
“Scott’s on life support. Once his family is in place they will discontinue his life support,” he wrote. “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 f***ing sad. I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present.”
“My life was enriched with his take on life,” he continued. “He wasn’t perfect but as he always said, ‘the last perfect person to walk the planet they nailed to a cross.’ 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.”
Hall, a two time WWE Hall of Famer, was due to appear at WrestleMania in Dallas this week, before breaking his hip during a recent fall.
One of the most prominent names in the wrestling world, Hall secured four WWF Intercontinental Championship titles before joining the WCW and forming the New World Order with Nash and Hulk Hogan. There, he went on to become WCW World Television Champion, two-time WCW US Heavyweight Champion, and nine-time WCW World Tag Team Champion.
