“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,” the company said in a statement.
The two-time WWE Hall of Famer was admitted to a hospital in Georgia last week after suffering a broken hip. He underwent hip replacement surgery and suffered complications due to a loose blood clot. He then suffered three heart attacks and was put on life support.
On Sunday evening, former WWE star Kevin Nash revealed that Hall’s family has decided to take him off life support.
“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 and I’m so very f—–g sad. I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, soon after WWE confirmed Hall’s death, several pro wrestlers took to social media to pay tributes.
“Doesn’t seem real. RIP Scott. You were a light. I’ll cherish our memories and always be so beyond grateful for your words and encouragement. Has always meant so much to Brie and I. Lots of love and prayers to the family,” Nikki and Brie Bella tweeted.
“My heart and prayers go out to the family of Scott Hall. He was a great wrestler, a likable guy, and will be missed. As some of you may remember, I had the pleasure of wrestling my last singles match in WWE against Razor Ramon,” Ted DiBiase tweeted.
