WWF Legend Reveals Razor Ramon’s Issues With The 1996 Goldust Rivalry

Razor Ramon Scott Hall Vs Goldust Royal Rumble 1996 WWF WrestleFeed App

In early 1996, WWF Intercontinental Champion Razor Ramon was involved in a rivalry with Goldust, who portrayed an androgynous type of gimmick, in which – despite being 100% straight and even having his wife Terri Runnels (as Marlena) ringside with him – he played mind games on his opponents, that included acting in a homosexual way at times to confuse them.

On a recent edition of his weekly ‘Kliq This’ podcast, Scott Hall’s (R.I.P.) best friend Kevin Nash revealed that Hall had issues with the storyline, as he didn’t want his kids to see the angle on TV.

Here’s what Nash had to say:

“So Scott, who wasn’t a homophobe, just told Vince. He goes, ‘If I have to go home, I’m involved in the angle, if I have to go home and explain this to my kid’, because you can’t just say, ‘Oh well, you know some men like other men’.

It wasn’t that Scott was a homophobe, Scott just didn’t want to teach his 5-year-old about homosexuality.”

At the WWF Royal Rumble 1996 pay-per-view, Goldust managed to defeat Razor Ramon for the Intercontinental Title, after interference by The 1-2-3 Kid.

The scheduled ‘Hollywood Backlot Brawl’ between them at WrestleMania XII two months later was changed due to Scott Hall (Razor) giving his notice to join Ted Turner’s WCW.

WWF Legend ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper eventually took Hall’s place and defeated Goldust in the street fight type match at the biggest stage of them all, but the championship wasn’t on the line.
