Scott Hall broke into the pro-wrestling business in 1982 where he worked for various promotions including the AWA. He then decided to join WWE where he achieved popularity going by the name of Razor Ramon. He won the WWE Intercontinental Championship on four occasions, including the most memorable bout of his career which was a ladder match for the title against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania X in Madison Square Garden. They had another ladder match the following year at SummerSlam that also has a special place in the heart of the fans.
Hall departed the WWE for WCW in 1996 alongside his friend Kevin Nash. Originally referred to as The Outsider, they helped spearhead a wrestling boom period alongside Hulk Hogan as founding members of the nWo. During his tenure in WCW, he held the TV Title, Tag Team Championships, and United States Title.
