Scott Hall may be another name in the discussion of “best wrestler never to win a World Championship”, though few would have thought based on his first eight years in the business that he would be World Championship material.
Scott Hall always had the look and the size, but when he created the gimmick of Razor Ramon, he finally found a way to draw money. For the first time in his career he was given the ball, and with it he proved to be a great interview, a solid worker and must see attraction. Upon his return to WCW Hall was stripped of his Razor Ramon character but it didn’t matter. Co-founding the New World Order, Scott became an even bigger star and often his segments were event highlights. Needless to say, the issues with Scott Hall are very evident as he has been fighting the same “demons” for what seems like decades. He has a Hall of Fame worthy career and it has to be believed that if he got himself clean he would have an excellent shot to receive a WWE Hall of Fame ring.
