One of the most influential professional wrestlers of all time, Scott Hall, died on Monday at the age of 63, and the WWE world is deeply saddened to learn the news.

Who was Razor Ramon?
Hall, known as “The bad guy,” began his career in 1984, before appearing in his first Wrestling World Championship in 1991 as The Diamond Studd. A year later, he signed with WWE, winning four Intercontinental championships and introducing the world to "Razor Ramon", a Miami-Cuban persona based on Scarface that was entertaining to watch, according to many.
Ramon's two Ladder Matches in 1995, at WrestleMania X and SummerSlam, have been huge fan-favorites regarded as singular classics, in addition to all his historic rivalries against Bret Hart, Kevin Nash, Shawn Michaels and many others.
In 1996, Hall made his biggest mark in wrestling when he founded the group New World Order (nWo), beside Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan, restructuring the sports-entertainment world.
The two-time world champion was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2014, and again in 2020.
