• Scott Hall’s Health Began Deteriorating 2 Years Ago Due To Drinking, Passed Out The Night Before WWE Hall Of Fame 2021 Ceremony
We lost 2-time WWE Hall Of Famer “Razor Ramon” Scott Hall on March 14, 2022 at the age of 63.
After suffering a fall at home, he broke his hip and underwent surgery. During the surgery, a blood clot became dislodged and he suffered 3 heart attacks.
He was then put on life support. His family decided to take him off life support and he passed away.
X-Pac told the Wrestling Observer that Hall’s health began deteriorating 2 years ago when the COVID-19 pandemic began, as he was left isolated at home and began drinking:
“His closest friends knew this was coming, but it probably made it worse because there was nothing they could do about it.
Sean Waltman noted that he called Hall a month ago to come out to stay with him because Hall had been deteriorating for the past two years due to drinking:
‘The pandemic did him in. It was hard enough for him as it was, but he was isolated in his house with no social interaction. He was down to 210 pounds. We called [Diamond Dallas Page] and he went over. It was really bad.’
When Hall fell and broke his hip, he was unable to move and was laying on the ground, unable to get to the phone.
He laid there for a few days before friends told Page to check on him since they couldn’t get in contact with him. Page found him and got him to the hospital.”
Hall was in really bad shape the night before nWo’s WWE Hall of Fame induction in 2021, where he passed out at the bar. However, he no sold it at the ceremony.
He was also in rough shape at the Stockton Comic Con in late 2021.
• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (March 19, 2021) – Old School WWF Jobber Passed Away
On this day in 2021, we lost Old School WWF Veteran Barry O (Real Name: Barry Orton) at the age of 62 due to an undisclosed medical condition.
Barry, who was the brother of WWF Legend & WWE Hall of Famer “Cowboy” Bob Orton Jr. and the uncle of WWE Veteran Randy Orton, wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1984 to 1987 and again from 1990 till 1991.
A lot of fans still remember his involvement in the 1992 WWF S*x-Scandal, where he made quite a few talk show appearances as a former victim of Terry Garvin’s harassment.
