World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) Hall of Famer Scott Hall aka Razor Ramon has died aged 63. The wrestling star died on Monday after he was taken off life support after suffering multiple heart attacks.

“WWE is saddened to learn that two-time WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall has passed away. WWE extends its condolences to Hall’s family, friends and fans,” read the tweet.

Adding: “The WWE family will forever remember Scott Hall as a gifted entertainer and 2-time WWE Hall of Famer, a loving father and a dear friend.”

Razor Ramon began his career in 1984 but rose to prominence in the 90s with WWF before departing in 1996 to join WCW.

He will be fondly remembered as a founding member of the New World Order (NWO) that comprised of Hulk Hogan and Kevin Nash at the time.

Razor Ramon left WCW in 2000 and returned to the WWF (later renamed WWE) for a short stint in 2002.

On March 24, 2014, Razor Ramon was announced as the seventh and final inductee into that year's class of the WWE Hall of Fame.
