A steroid freak who is as slow as a chair.































He also is useless because he only knows fake wrestling moves and probably doesn't even know how to do anything.

He's a good performer and has had some great matches especially his ladder match with HBK. Also, his run in nWo was awesome,but it's just a shame that he had to start drinking and doing drugs. Luckily, Diamond Dallas Page has started helping him out to get his life back on track, along with Jake "The Snake" Roberts.

Ask a decently knowledgeable wrestling fan who was the greatest wrestler to never hold a world title, and it won't be long before someone mentions Scott Hall/Razor Ramon. Scott had the package to be an world champion: plenty of charisma to spare, good mike skills, ability to work a crowd well, was an above average technitian in the ring when he was younger, possessed pretty good brawling skills, was an good worker who put on some terrific matches with Shawn Michaels (of course everyone remembers the ladder match that propelled Shawn's career) Let's also not forget Scott Hall had an pretty badass and impactful finishing move which always got an pop when pulled out which is an underrated component to being a champion in my opinion. Scott Hall's charisma and ability to interract with the crowd while maintain being an badass helped him play a support role as one of the big 3 of the original NWO, the angle that propelled WCW to kill WWF for 82 straight weeks and almost put them out of business. Many will say something like "WCW held back Scott Hall and he should've been world champion", but to be frank, Scott Hall prevented himself from becoming world champion. Scott's driking issues got to him to affect his body and in ring performance, hence Scott Hall in my opinion could never reach the championchip belt. Once WCW ran the tasteless alcoholic angle, Scott's career was essentially buried as he was now precieved as an drunken bum than one of the most charismatic characters in wrestling at the time.































In short, my analysis of Scott Hall is that he certainly should hold his place in wrestling history as one of the key guys to help swing audiences from WWF to WCW and as a guy who was one of the best of the guys who benefited from Hart's first title victory and Scott should hold a place as an good worker, but due to the fact that Scott could never get clean, we will never know how much better of an in ring perrformer Hall could've been or how long he could've lasted. Hall is one of the sadder stories of falling from grace in wrestling, and it's too bad because he had all the tools.

Burned bright & brief. I always will love the classic AWA matches of Scott Hall. Anybody remember those? He was a much better wrestler technically than now. (Shakes head.) He's having a hip replaced, he was in pain. DDP raised the money and is managing the money for him, he doesn't have it alone. The operation is April the 9th. After that, who knows? Might be an adequate manager or commentator like Zybysko.

I would put him in the top 3 wrestlers ever in terms of being over with the crowd. Whether he was face or heel, he was a genius at swaying the crowd. I'm glad he's cleaning up his life now.
