Wrestling legends have paid tribute to Hall

Scott Hall was a respected figure in wrestling. According to WFLA, he was a member of the WWE Hall of Fame, and was best known for his New World Order group with Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash.

Hogan released a heartfelt statement about the passing of his friend. "In Jesus' name I pray, thank you God for taking care of my brother," Hogan said. "He took care of me while I was down and out and everybody thought Hulkamania was dead. Scott Hall resurrected me. He put me back on the map. I love him so much, I can't even explain it to ya." He continued, "He had a bunch of faults, but he was a good guy."

Hogan wasn't the only wrestling legend to pay tribute to Hall (via Cageside Seats). Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson posted a video of Hall to hisĀ Instagram with the caption, "Pro wrestling just lost a legend in Scott Hall. Scott came from an era of pro wrestling where wrestlers were the biggest and toughest men on the planet." He continued, "Before my match here with Scott, I made sure to tell him how much his in-ring work influenced me. When I was a rookie in wrestling, I would study Scott's matches. His style, intensity, crispness, and his excellent in-ring IQ and psychology. I studied his matches, frame by frame."

Hall was respected and admired by the wrestling community, and is already deeply missed.
