WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall - who fans may also know by his ring name Razor Ramon - has passed away at the age of 63.

The pro-wrestling legend and former four-time WWE Intercontinental Champion died on Monday (March 14), following complications from hip surgery.

Over the weekend, pro wrestling newsletter PW Torch reported that Hall had suffered three heart attacks following the surgery, and was placed on life support.

Yesterday, his long-time friend and tag team partner Kevin Nash (who fans may remember as Diesel in WWE), revealed in an Instagram post that Hall's life support was due to be turned off once his family was at his side at the Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, Georgia.

Eventually, Hall's life support was switched off, and he passed away hours later.

In a statement released by WWE last night, the company described him as a "hugely influential" talent and highlighted how his defection to rival company WCW was pivotal in "revolutionizing the sports-entertainment industry and ushering in the 'Monday Night Wars.'"

WWE also aired a video package paying tribute to Hall during last night's episode of Monday Night Raw. You can see it below:

Throughout Hall's career, "The Bad Guy" went on to capture some of pro-wrestling's most illustrious accolades, winning the WWE Intercontinental Championship on four separate occasions, as well as the WCW United States Championship twice, and the WCW World Tag Team Championships seven times - with partners Kevin Nash and Paul White (then The Giant).

He has also been immortalized as a two-time WWE Hall of Famer, being inducted individually in 2014 under his Razor Ramon gimmick, and again in 2020 as part of the New World Order faction.

Additionally, he has left behind a legacy of timeless matches against the likes of Sean Waltman (1-2-3 Kid), Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Dustin Rhodes (Goldust), and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

Following Hall's passing, many WWE Superstars past and present took to social media to pay their respects.

WWE legend Triple H tweeted: "I’m gutted... Lost a brother [...] I love you Scott!! I’ll see you down the road..."

Icon Mick Foley tweeted: "Scott Hall was a towering figure among his contemporaries - a legend inside and outside the ring. My deepest condolences to his friends, family and everyone who loved him."

And Diamond Dallas Page (DDP) - who many fans credit with helping Hall overcome his battles with addiction - tweeted the following: "My brother has gone on to Valhalla to raise some hell. The bad guy till the end. 'YO Death, what’s your finisher? Can’t wait to kick out'. He may not have kicked out, but he wasn’t gonna put that MF’er over clean."

And the tributes continued:

Our thoughts go out to Hall's family, friends, and fans at this time.

Hard work pays off, dreams come true. Bad times don't last, but bad guys do.
