WWE Legend Scott Hall will disarm his life support, his friend and fellow NWO founder, Kevin Nash announced on Sunday.
“Scott on life support machines. Once his family is in place, they will stop life support,” Nash wrote in an emotional tribute to Hall on Instagram, adding an old photo of the pair laughing together.
Hall, 63, was at Wellstar Kinston Hospital in Marietta, Georgia to repair a broken hip after suffering a fall.
Hall previously dealt with heart problems, which led to him being given a defibrillator and a pacemaker in his chest.
“I’m going to lose the one person on this planet that I’ve spent more life with than anyone else,” Nash continued on his Instagram. “My heart is broken and I am very, very sad for the King. I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to make my life without him for the time being. I have been fortunate to have a friend who has taken me at face value and I am him.”
“When we jumped into WCW, we didn’t care who liked us or hated us. We had each other and with the smooth Barry Bloom, we changed wrestling in terms of content and we paid for it.”
Hall and Nash moved from WWE, where Hall was known as Razor Ramon, to WCW in 1996 and helped turn the wrestling power structure on its head. Hull and Nash created the NWO, along with Hulk Hogan, a group that sewed chaos within WCW.
The WCW angle shot to popularity and got into the famous Monday Night Wars between Nitro’s WCW and WWE’s Raw.
The wrestling community, including current and former pros, continues to share supportive messages about Hall on social media.
