Scott Hall was a lot more than just Razor Ramon or the nWo. His career spanned contracts. Despite battles with personal demons, Hall had a good reputation with “the boys”. He was known to be a selfless performer (“I’m not a mark for myself,” he once said when asked if it bothered him he’d never won a World title). His work inspired countless wrestlers, and he was known as mentor for many — especially after he got clean in 2013.
For those and other reasons, the internet is flooded with remembrances and tributes to the two-time WWE Hall of Famer as word spreads of his death today (Mar. 14, 2022) at age 63.
Here are some of those (where someone quote-tweeted WWE’s “In Memorium” messagewe’ve copied the text and the sender’s name is a link to their original message, except in instances where they added another image):
He wore that shirt every week & had the rest of the nWo(Hulk, Dusty, Macho Man) always shouted me out on live TV while I was out with a broken neck. Just one example of what a good friend he was. #RIPScottHall pic.twitter.com/eBCg7FoOH6

Shane McMahon: I am so deeply saddened by the loss of Scott Hall, a singular talent and in my view, perhaps the greatest to ever preform in the squared circle.
I will miss you, my friend.
God speed. “Hey yo”
So many prayers for Scott Hall and his family right now. The wrestling community is a very strong family and near or far, we have each others backs. Times like these are never easy but I do know there are so many incredible people waiting for you on the other side, ‘Bad Guy.’ pic.twitter.com/KGTpWR44BR

This is a very sad day. Scott Hall was one of the greatest wrestlers to compete in any era. When he walked on to Nitro on May 27, 1996 it changed wrestling. “Survey Says: May the Bad Guy Rest In Peace.” pic.twitter.com/YyI2O3BwB5

For 30+ years Scott was many things to me —mentor, rival, etc; Above all he was my friend. I never had a conversation w him that we didn’t either call each other “buddy” or joke about the “buddy system”.
Rest easy buddy…
I pray that you are at peace now.
Love ya Skit! pic.twitter.com/qKM4P28Gwj

If Scott Hall (& Kevin Nash) never made decisions they made the biz would never have changed. If there was no nWo they would be no bWo. They made the business better for everyone. I’m forever grateful for Scott’s kindness to me. Rest In Peace Scott and most importantly thank you. pic.twitter.com/ONW5xWHEbv

You just wanted to be around him. I’m very grateful for those moments. His spirit will live on through his friends and family, and those of us who will try to be just 1% as cool as The Bad Guy. Thank you for everything, Scott.

Didn’t know the “Bad Guy” that well, but we’ve met several times over the years in different places and the man was always super cool toward me. Highly talented & successful worker. Prayers & condolences to Scott Hall’s fans, friends & family. #RIPScottHall pic.twitter.com/JFfuvo3piJ

We lost a brilliant man today. Scott’s contributions will forever be celebrated. I remember when Perro Jr passed. Rey & Konnan were DEVASTATED. In a flash Scott blew up his schedule to be with them that weekend in Cali. Despite being The Bad Guy he had a BIG heart. #RIPScottHall pic.twitter.com/iGaZgyPoun

Satoshi Kojima: We did business together in Japan more than 20 years ago.
He gave me a lot of advice.
He was always smiling.
I am very sad.
Thank you for memories of those of us at AIW will all remember for the rest of our lives. Scott Hall is one of the most important professional wrestlers ever and today we lost not only a legend but someone who wanted to always make the business better, he was 1 of 1. #RIPScottHall https://t.co/6JattkmXAc pic.twitter.com/c7qXG0bqNC

My heart is so heavy for @RealKevinNash and @TheRealXPac and all of Scott’s close friends. The bond of brotherhood that is formed through the years in pro wrestling is like absolutely nothing else. And of course Scott’s fans. We all lost a hero today.

Scott Hall left wrestling a lot better than he found it – creatively and financially – it’s a better place for us now because of him.

The Bad Guy was loved. There have been so many of these in the hours since it was announced that Hall was gone, we’ve surely missed many — and probably will have another batch or two in the days ahead.
