The WWE announced their final inductee into the 2014 Wrestling Hall Of Fame on Monday night. Scott Hall will join several other professional wrestlers including Jake The Snake and The Ultimate Warrior, on April 5, 2014 at the New Orleans Arena in New Orleans, Louisiana for the induction ceremony. The ceremony will air on the new WWE Network.
Scott Hall wrestled in both the WWE and WCW. He was one of the original founders of the NWO and feuded with many popular wrestlers including Sting, Lex Luger and The Macho Man. He was a longtime friend and partner of Kevin Nash and wrestled under the name Razor Ramone throughout most of his career.
Hall held the WWF Intercontinental Champion title four times during his career and was the WCW United States Heavyweight Champion twice. Hall wrestled for several different wrestling circuits between the early 80’s and 2010. He disappeared from the wrestling world in 2011.
While Hall may have seemed confident and in control in the ring, he often struggled with drug and alcohol problems. He was arrested several times and his health began deteriorating. In 2013, former professional wrestler Diamond Dallas Page invited Hall to his home and offered to help him with his drug and alcohol problems. Hall agreed and has begun to turn his life around. Diamond Dallas Page also had a hand in helping Jake the Snake overcome his alcohol and drug abuse problems.
Hall was often underrated as a wrestler and many of his fans felt that he was never given the chance to rise to the top and become a true main event star. Hall’s induction into the WWE Hall Of Fame will finally give him the recognition he deserves for his years of hard work and dedication to professional wrestling.
