With the news broke that Scott Hall had suffered three heart attacks, following hip surgery, friends and colleagues began sharing their memories of “The Bad Guy.” Then, when Kevin Nash announced that Hall would be pulled off of life support, a tidal wave of nostalgia washed over social media. Many were premature with the “rest in peace” news, however. SlamWrestling.net has collected some below.

I’ll never forget working a merch table at show and seeing Scott Hall across the room.
He recognized me from working together a few months prior & he got up out of his seat to walk across the building to shake my hand & say hi.
As a huge Scott Hall fan… it was truly humbling experience from a man with a ❤️ of gold.
“Never meet your heroes” isn’t always true.
