Kevin Nash informed early Monday morning that his long-time tag team partner and friend Scott Hall is being taken off life support.
Nash shared the following via Instagram:
Scott’s on life support. 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 f—ing sad. I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present.
I’ve been blessed to have a friend that took me at face value and I him. When we jumped to WCW we didn’t care who liked or hated us. We had each other and with the smooth Barry Bloom we changed wrestling both in content and pay for those……alot that disliked us.
We were the “Outsiders ” but we had each other. Scott always felt he wasn’t worthy of the afterlife. Well God please have some gold plated toothpicks for my brother. My life was enriched with his take on life. 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 was placed on life support after he suffered three heart attacks on Saturday. The complications arose after the WWE Hall of Famer underwent hip surgery last week. The 63-year-old Hall required hip surgery after he fell and broke his hip earlier this month.
Scott Hall to be removed from Life Support:
MARIETTA, Ga. (WTAJ) — Wrestling legend Scott Hall, who rose to popularity in the mid 90s as Razor Ramon, was placed on life support after suffering multiple heart attacks after hip replacement surgery.
In an update to this story, Hall’s close friend and wrestling legend Kevin Nash took to his Instagram to update fans.
Nash said that Hall is currently on life support while they work to bring his family in. Once all together, they will remove him from life support and hope for the best.
“I’m going to lose the one person on this planet that I’ve spent more of my life with than anyone else,” Kevin Nash said in his update.
Hall reportedly went in for hip replacement surgery that had serious complications and led to three heart attacks, leaving ‘The Bad Guy’ on life support at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital, according to close friend ‘Marvelous’ Marc Mero.
“My thoughts and prayers are for Scott Hall who is on life support at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital. We spent many years in WCW and WWE together. Some great memories,” Mero tweeted out.
Hall saw a massive rise to fame in the early ’90s as the Scarface inspired Razor Ramon. After a number of Intercontinental title runs, Hall left the WWE to go back to WCW where he helped revolutionize wrestling as we knew it when he formed the nWo with Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash.
Over the years, Hall developed a severe alcohol addiction that even played out on TV while in WCW and in TNA/Impact Wrestling as part of a storyline.
“Hard work pays off, dreams come true. Bad times don’t last, but BAD GUYS do.”
Hall, much like Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts, was finally able to get clean with the help of Diamond Dallas Page. He has since been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice, once as himself with the nWo and once as the iconic Razor Ramon.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Scott Hall and his family. Thinking of you all right now. Sending so much health, healing, love and strength your way. Xoxo,” Impact Wrestling Knockout Champion Mickie James tweeted Sunday afternoon.
