WWE Hall Of Famer Scott Hall is one of the biggest and most iconic names in professional wrestling, especially thanks to forming the nWo in 1996 alongside Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash. He is a two-time Hall Of Famer as well after he got inducted in 2014 as Razor Ramon and 2020 as Scott Hall as part of the nWo.
Earlier this year, Scott Hall was sent to the hospital after he suffered a broken hip due to taking a fall. According to Wade Keller at the PWTorch, Scott Hall was on life support after suffering three heart attacks. It was said complications arose after his hip surgery when a blood clot got loose.
Kevin Nash then revealed that Scott Hall was going to be taken off life support soon and that is exactly what happened. Scott Hall passed away recently at the age of 63 and the pro wrestling world continues to mourn his untimely demise.
On this week’s “Insight with Chris Van Vliet,” Cody Hall spoke about living up to his father’s legacy.
“I used to think that it was my burden to bear, but now I’ve been trying to see it as my torch to carry. I am so proud,” Hall said.
“My father was a great man who lived a great life who did a lot of great things in his life. He lived a full life, so I’m very happy for him and very proud of him. But it’s hard. Every show that I go to, people want to say such and such about my father, ‘Oh, he was the coolest. He was the best’, and it’s hard to live down. It’s hard to over shine him or step out of that shadow, so I always had an inferiority complex about it. No matter what I did, it would never be good enough and no matter what I did, people would never acknowledge it. It would always be about my father. So that was definitely a struggle for me, and kind of still is.”
