WWE star Scott Hall will be taken off life support.
The news was announced by friend and NWO founder Kevin Nash in a heartfelt Instagram post on Monday morning. Hall and Nash had previously served in the WWE, where Hall was known as Razor Ramon. In 1996, the two teamed up to create the NWO along with Hulk Hogan.
Hall was put on life support after he suffered three heart attacks on Saturday due to complications from hip replacement surgery.

On Monday, Nash paid tribute to the WWE star, who was at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital in Marietta, Georgia, to repair a broken hip after a fall. Hall, who has previously struggled with heart issues, had a defibrillator and a pacemaker installed in his chest.
“Scott’s on life support,” Nash wrote in his tribute. “Once his family is in place they will discontinue life support.”
“I’m going to lose the one person on this planet I’ve spent more of my life with than anyone else,” he continued. “My heart is broken and I’m so very f—ing sad. I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present.”
“I’ve been blessed to have a friend that took me at face value and I him,” he continued. “When we jumped to WCW we didn’t care who liked or hated us. We had each other and with the smooth Barry Bloom we changed wrestling both in content and pay for those……a lot that disliked us.”
“We were the ‘Outsiders ‘ but we had each other,” he went on. “Scott always felt he wasn’t worthy of the afterlife. Well God please have some gold plated toothpicks for my brother.”
“My life was enriched with his take on life,” Nash continued. “He wasn’t perfect but as he always said ‘The last perfect person to walk the planet they nailed to a cross.’ As we prepare for life without him just remember there goes a great guy you ain’t going to see another one like him again.”
“See Ya down the road Scott,” he concluded. “I couldn’t love a human being any more than I do you.”

Wow, hearing reports that Scott Hall will be taken off life support soon. Razor Ramon was the first wrestler I ever watched as a kid and I thought he was the coolest person on the planet.
