Scott Hall


Scott Oliver Hall (born October 20, 1958) is an American professional wrestler. He is best known for his tenure with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF ̶ now WWE) in the early and mid 1990s under the ring name Razor Ramon, as well as for his period in the mid 1990s and early 2000s with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) under his real name. Since the late 2000s, Hall has become known for his much publicized battles with alcoholism and drug addiction, which he initially struggled with in the late 1990s during his time in WCW.

Hall began his career in 1984 in Championship Wrestling from Florida (CWF), before working in territories across Jim Crockett Promotions as part of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA). In 1985, Hall moved to the American Wrestling Association (AWA), winning the AWA World Tag Team Championship once with Curt Hennig in January 1986. Following further stints in the NWA and the World Wrestling Council - where he would briefly hold the WWC Caribbean Heavyweight Championship - Hall signed with the World Wrestling Federation in 1992. Hall would wrestle as Razor Ramon, a Latino-heel persona modeled after the characters of Tony Montana and Manny Ribera from the movie Scarface. While in the WWF, Hall would win the WWF Intercontinental Championship four times, before leaving for WCW in 1996.

Shortly after arriving in WCW, Hall became one of the three original members of the New World Order (nWo) stable along with Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash. The stable's gimmick was a group of unsanctioned wrestlers aiming to "take over" and control WCW in the manner of a street gang. The storyline helped skyrocket WCW's television ratings and reinvigorated interest in the promotion. Over the course of his time with WCW, Hall became a seven time WCW World Tag Team Champion, two time WCW United States Heavyweight Championship, one time WCW World Television Champion, and winner of WCW World War 3 1997. Following the demise of WCW in 2001, Hall would briefly reprise the nWo stable with Nash and Hogan in the WWF in 2002.

Since being released from the WWF, Hall has wrestled in various other wrestling promotions including Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, International Wrestling Association and Juggalo Championship Wrestling. Hall is a two time world heavyweight champion, having won the USWA Unified World Heavyweight Championship once and the WWC Universal Heavyweight Championship once.
