WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall, who played iconic heel Razor Ramon in the 1990s and helped professional wrestling gain worldwide attention, died on Monday, WWE announced.

"WWE is saddened to learn that two-time WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall has passed away. WWE extends its condolences to Hall’s family, friends and fans," WWE said in a statement released on Twitter

Hall's death comes after his longtime friend and former tag team partner Kevin Nash announced Sunday night Hall going to be taken off life support.

Hall's condition was first reported by the wrestling blog PW Torch on Sunday, saying Hall was put on life support after suffering three heart attacks on Saturday. PW Torch said he recently had hip replacement surgery after a fall in early March. 

Nash, who was Hall's tag team partner and founder of the wrestling faction New World Order alongside Hulk Hogan in World Championship Wrestling, confirmed Hall's status in an Instagram post late Sunday night.

"Scott's on life support. Once his family is in place they will discontinue life support. I'm going to lose the one person on this planet I've spent more of my life with than anyone else. My heart is broken. I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present. I've been blessed to have a friend that took me at face value and I him.

"As we prepare for life without him just remember there goes a great guy you ain't going to see another one like him again. See Ya down the road Scott. I couldn't love a human being any more than I do you," Nash wrote.

The 63-year-old rose to stardom in WWE in 1992 as Cuban-American character, Razor Ramon, nicknamed "The Bad Guy" who was known as cool, gold chain-wearing heel that would carry a toothpick in his mouth. He won the Intercontinental Championship four times.

Four years later, Hall joined WCW alongside Nash and Hogan and played a role in the television feud between the two companies. During that time, he won the WCW World Television Championship, WCW United States Heavyweight Championship twice and WCW World Tag Team Championship seven times. 

Hall is a two-time WWE Hall of Famer, as he was inducted as himself in 2014 and as New World Order in 2020, appearing in the company on occasion since his first induction.

Many current and former wrestlers honored Hall on social media. On Sunday, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson tweeted, "Scott Hall, pulling for you my friend. Stay strong! We need the 'bad guy' back in the game."
