Legendary WWE star Scott Hall has died – days after being placed on life support at age 63.
WWE confirmed the late icon’s death with a tribute. He was known for his Razor Ramon character and becoming a four-time Intercontinental Champion.
Hall was placed on life support following severe medical issues related to surgery on his broken hip. In addition, according to TMZ, he suffered three heart attacks on Saturday.
Before his death was confirmed, Hall’s friend and fellow wrestler Kevin Nash said the late wrestler would be taking off life support once his family was able to say goodbye.
Many hoped the beloved WWE icon would pull through, but Scott Hall was pronounced dead on Monday night.
Hall had been hospitalized earlier this month after breaking his hip in a fall. A dislodged blood clot reportedly caused the heart attacks.
