Tragic news has hit the world of professional wrestling, as we’re about to lose one of the WWE’s most recognized superstars of all time.
On Sunday, it was reported that Scott Hall was on life support after suffering three heart attacks, which were the result of complications from hip surgery he underwent last week.
Today, the news only got worse, as Hall’s longtime friend and former tag team partner Kevin Nash announced that Hall’s family intends to take him off life support.
In an Instagram post, Nash revealed the tragic news while speaking about how much Hall meant to him throughout his life.
“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 fucking 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 one of the most recognizable faces in the WWE and WCW during his time in the ring. He was a four-time WWE Intercontinental champion and one of the key members of the popular NWO, which changed the face of WCW wrestling at the time. He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014 as a singles competitor, and agains as a member of the NWO in 2020.
He’s 63 years of age. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
