Scott Hall is one of the most famous wrestlers of all time, being a star in both WWE and WCW during the peak years of professional wrestling. Over 10 million people tuned in weekly when he was on top as part of the New World Order alongside best friends Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan.
He wrestled everyone who is anyone in the wrestling industry, although he never appeared in the Royal Rumble match. In this article, we’ll look at his first televised match in the WWE as well as the secret bout he wrestled in five years prior that you may not know about. We’ll also detail Scott Hall’s last WWE match and reveal why he was fired just after the bout.
Scott Hall’s WWE Debut
Scott Hall made his WWE debut on the August 8th, 1992 episode of WWF Superstars. Appearing as the Cuban “Razor Ramon” gimmick, he walked to the ring with his famous toothpick and yellow vest combination.
He struck an agressive figure as he walked to the ring. His first match was against Gary Jackson, a local jobber who was signed to the WWE. Ramon made quick work of the local wrestler, beating him in three minutes with his Razor’s Edge powerbomb.
He had appeared on untelevised WWE shows years prior. He wrestled as Scott Hall in his first ever WWE match on the August 23rd, 1987 house show in Civic Center in Springfield, Massachusetts.
In this match, Scott Hall teamed with Jerry Allen in a losing effort to Barry Horowitz and Iron Mike Sharpe. No footage is available of this match and it’s existence is reported on Cagematch.
Scott Hall’s Last WWE Match
Scott Hall’s last match in WWE was on the May 5th, 2002 episode of Monday Night Raw. He teamed with Big Show and X-Pac against Steve Austin, Bradshaw and Ric Flair in a six-man tag team match that ended in a no contest.
He teamed with Big Show and X-Pac as part of the recently reunited New World Order (NWO) in the WWE. Along with Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash, Hall returned to the WWE at No Way Out 2002 to bring the legendary stable to the WWE.
He then went on to battle “Stone Cold” Steve Austin at Wrestlemania X8, losing to the WWE Hall of Famer. Hulk Hogan soon left the group after turning face during his Wrestlemania match with The Rock.
Scott Hall’s final match looked like a defeat. Steve Austin pinned X-Pac after a Stone Cold Stunner and the referee counted to three. However, it became apparent that Hall placed X-Pac’s foot on the rope and thus he did not lose the match. It was later rectified to a no-contest as the two teams brawled.
Scott Hall was fired soon after. This was both due to substance abuse issues and an incident that took place on the infamous “Plane Ride From Hell” the night before.
Hamish is a writer and podcaster and wrestling fan who is a key part of the Atletifo team.
After playing countless hours of WrestleMania X8 on the Gamecube, he discovered Rey Mysterio getting his head crushed by The Great Khali, and thus a love for professional wrestling was born.
He is also a Media Graduate, as well as writing for multiple sites about Premier League football and the culture of Wales – his home country.
