How did Scott Hall become famous?

Scott first broke onto the wrestling scene way back in 1984, but it wasn't until 1992 when he joined the WWE that he truly started becoming a household name. He established the character of Razor Ramon, a moniker that he ran with for the majority of the '90s while he won countless fights.

After departing from the WWE in 1996, he joined World Championship Wrestling and became one of the three founding members of the nWo, one of the most famous wrestling trios in the history of the sport. Their impact was so great that, even to this day, they are constantly referenced by contemporaries, and merchandise with their faces and logo is still in production.

Scott's impact on the world of wrestling is so great that he was actually inducted into the Hall of Fame twice in his career. The first time, as previously mentioned, came in 2014 when he was admitted as a solo competitor. Then, in 2020, he and the other two members of nWo were admitted as a group for their contributions to the sport at large.

With that being said, it's nearly impossible to ignore the impact that Scott had on wrestling at his time, as well as the reverberant effects of his legacy that carry on to this day.

Our thoughts are with Scott's family, friends, and fans during this difficult time.
