But does it make him look more like a wrestler than 99% of the talent today?

Wow, just saw that he was on the Global Force roster and fired a whole five days later. Speaking of Ready or Not, how fucking cool is this?  

Should be Mount Rushmore material if only for saying to Bubba Ray "What's your finisher? Cool, look forward to kicking out of it"

Scott Hall is one of the all time great big men for me.

One of the coolest finishers of all time. Amazing working punch. Entertaining as fuck worker who you couldn't keep your eyes off in the ring. Good talker. Amazing look. Great physique. Effective as a heel and a babyface. 

Allegedly prick backstage, but he put young guys like Jericho and Walman over in the ring. 

Very creative wrestling mind also.

Christ, I'd blanked out he showed up in ECW. 

Worth it for coming out to The Fugee's Ready or Not. What an unexpectedly cool wrestling entrance theme.

 

The pop Hall gets after coming through the curtain there is lovely and uplifting.

Razors edge will always be my favourite finisher!! 

That whole Razor run with his look, cool as fuck theme music, physique, promos everything! Just basically the definition (for me at least) of what I want/imagine a  wrestler to be... Larger than life to not look like a regular human but not so over the top its rediculous (Adam bomb etc)!

Hairy, greaser guys wearing gawdy shit just shouldn't look this fucking boss!!! 

Does say alot. About how awesome Scott was in the role as he looks amazing here:

And then you see this guy

Who Rip the fella but looks a tit (what were they thinking) 

The gimmick could have been a lame duck but Hall nailed it! 

Quite odd that I could name you so many of his wwf Razor matches, and alot of there content but virtually fuck all of his WCW run. 

In one of my 'sliding doors' fantasies he returns to wwf in 2002/3 as Razor with a slightly less 96 neon pink type attire.

Actually razor vs rock, Austin, Angle etc would have been gold and the pop he'd have got winning the 'big' one would have been Huge!!! 

A motivated Hall vs Angle  if written well could have been proper promo and vignette gold. Angle working himself up Into an utter frenzy trying to get to him and Razor being macho cool and disregarding him repeatedly could have been amazing.

Hall defo did the gimmick proud. I remember the vignettes before his debut and he played his part great. 

In regards to his ring work, and I mean this as a compliment, I put him in the "Triple H" category. I remember much fuss being made about Bret saying HHH had never had a great match. My feelings on it were HHH is a great worker who had many a great match with superior workers, but had many shittier matches with inferior wrestlers. He was very good but not up there with the very, very best. 

Being someone who's fav era was early 90s WWF, I'll always enjoy Razor most for his great Rumble match with Bret and his excellent Raw feud with 123 Kid.

That particular job isn’t the best example if you’re trying to play devil’s advocate re: Hall’s professionalism. He was supposed to win.

Also says alot that despite being in his 50s here:spacer.png

And.... Far from his peak he still looks 99% more a wrestler than most of the guys today 

The last time I marked out.... And got conned:

Looks the shit! Best he's looked in 8 years! The Razor hair back........everyone creams themselves over it...... So he decides to celebrate the plaudits with a 2 day bender, manages to upset everyone in tna, upset aload of patrons in the florida bars, get arrested and sacked! 

All that... And still luv the bastard!

Well yeah, he was an alcoholic junkie with myriad mental health issues, I'd say he's the definitive 80's/90's wrestler

His snooker waistcoat looks like a gun holster belt. Didnt he get a pacemaker fitted soon after this and never worked since? I dont know if many wrestlers have this picture up on the gym wall for inspiration.

Hi Ian. Almost.

Epic bender during the week after this. There was some vague reference to getting on the gas to get down to 254lbs  on one of his "last call with Scott Hall" vids he was doing on YouTube when he'd joined TNA, prior to this appearance. 

If I recall he had a massive drinking binge that went on for a few months after this (probably realising he'd fucked his last chance) culminating with him getting hospitalised near death. 

Could be a combo of gear + being 50 and on drink/drugs, a lifetime of doing drugs and booze, or a combo of all 3!
