• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF Legend “Razor Ramon” Scott Hall celebrates his 60th birthday today.

After touring the territories (NWA, AWA, …) during the 80s, he joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1991 as Diamond Dallas Page’s accomplice ‘The Diamond Studd’, but in 1992 was signed to a World Wrestling Federation contract, where he became ‘Razor Ramon’, a character based on Al Pacino’s role as Tony Montana in the movie “Scarface”.

Scott Hall eventually ended up becoming one of the most famous & influential superstars in professional wrestling history, most famously revolutionizing the business when he co-founded the nWo in 1996, after leaving the WWF in order to return to WCW for some big money.

In 2014, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his close, personal friend Kevin Nash.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RAZOR RAMON!
