Kevin Nash says Scott Hall will be taken off life support once family in place

The wrestling world’s been waiting on an update about Scott Hall since news spread yesterday (Mar. 13) he was on life support after suffering three heart attacks during hip replacement surgery.

An overnight Instagram from Hall’s long-time friend Kevin Nash provides that update, though it’s not the one we’ve been hoping and praying for. It also comes with a heartbreaking farewell from one Outsider to another:

“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 fucking sad. I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present. I’ve been blessed to have a friend that took me at face value and I him. When we jumped to WCW we didn’t care who liked or hated us. We had each other and with the smooth Barry Bloom we changed wrestling both in content and pay for those......alot that disliked us. We were the “Outsiders “ but we had each other.

“Scott always felt he wasn’t worthy of the afterlife. Well God please have some gold plated toothpicks for my brother. My life was enriched with his take on life. He wasn’t perfect but as he always said ‘The last perfect person to walk the planet they nailed to a cross’

“As we prepare for life without him just remember there goes a great guy you ain’t going to see another one like him again. See Ya down the road Scott. I couldn’t love a human being any more than I do you”

In the 1990s, Hall and Nash were founding members of both the backstage Kliq and the on-screen nWo. They were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame together as part of the latter group in 2020.

Keep a good thought for all of Hall’s family and friends today.
