Who Was Scott Hall?
On October 20, 1958, Scott Oliver Hall was born, and he died on March 14, 2022, in New York City. His most well-known professional wrestling appearances were with the World Wrestling Federation (now WWE) under the ring name Razor Ramon and with World Championship Wrestling (WCW) under his own name.
Following his debut in 1984, Hall rose to fame after signing with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in May 1992, under the ring moniker Razor Ramon. Hall has since retired from professional wrestling. The WWF Intercontinental Championship was won by him four times while working for the business.
With the company’s dissolution in May 1996, he went on to contract with the rival organization WCW, where he was a founding member of the New World Order (nWo) group, with Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash. During his career with the promotion, he earned the titles of WCW United States Heavyweight Champion on two occasions, WCW World Television Champion on one occasion, and WCW World Tag Team Champion on nine occasions.
When he departed the World Wrestling Federation (later renamed WWE) in February 2000, he briefly returned to the WWF (later renamed WWE). With Kevin Nash and Eric Young, he went on to wrestle for a variety of firms, including Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA), where he was a member of the TNA World Tag Team Championship for a brief period.
Despite the fact that he never won a world championship in a major organization, Hall was a one-time world champion, having held the WWC Universal Heavyweight Championship in the early 1980s. The WWE Hall of Fame inducted him as a singles combatant in 2014, and he was inducted as a member of the nWo as a member of the organization in 2020.

Scott Hall Criminal History
A guy shot himself in the head in 1983 after Hall wrestled his gun away from him during a confrontation outside of an Orlando nightclub. Hall was charged with second-degree murder after shooting the man with his own weapon. According to Hall, this was done as a kind of self-defense. Due to a lack of evidence, the charges against the defendant were dismissed. In a 2011 interview with ESPN, Hall stated that the experience had left him with no memory of it.
In 1998, Hall was arrested for molesting a 56-year-old woman outside a motel in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. He was released on bond the following day.
During a roast of The Iron Sheik, conducted at the Crowne Plaza hotel in New Jersey on October 10, 2008, Hall was detained and charged with criminal contempt. “After The Sheik and Hacksaw Jim Duggan got discovered snorting drugs in the parking lot, his career dropped faster than Owen Hart,” a comedian, Jimmy Graham, had jokingly observed.
Angry, Hall ran towards Graham, knocking down a podium, then snatched the microphone away from him and screamed about how the joke was insulting to Hart, who died on May 23, 1999, as a result of injuries incurred after falling from the rafters of Kemper Arena in Kansas City. Graham posted a description of the incident on his MySpace website, stating that Hall was intoxicated at the time of the incident.
Ward Hall was arrested and charged with disorderly behavior and resisting a police officer on May 14, 2010, according to court documents. Police were called to the Hitching Post Bar in Chuluota, Florida after Hall “got confrontational.” Hall was arrested and charged with domestic violence. Apparently, Hall had been “drinking extensively,” according to the police report.
The officers discovered him screaming and swearing at independent professional wrestling stars as well as bar employees when they arrived. Hall was informed that he would not be permitted to return to the establishment. Hall characterized himself as an unemployed professional wrestler in his police statement, despite the fact that he had a job with TNA Wrestling, which would fire him a month after he was hired.
Before 9:30 p.m. on April 6, 2012, deputies from the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office apprehended Hall in Chuluota, Florida, according to court documents. According to later reports, the arrest was made in connection with a domestic incident involving his girlfriend, Lisa Howell.
Hall is accused of choking Howell while he was intoxicated. He was escorted to a hospital in Seminole County where he was medically cleared before being transported to a sobriety facility. Hall categorically refuted the claims of choking. The charges were withdrawn by the prosecution because there was insufficient evidence.
