Scott Hall nicknamed for Scott Oliver Hall is a semi-retired American professional wrestler. In the wrestling field he has been known for his tenures with the World Wrestling Federation. Beside that he has been best known by his ring name, Razor Ramon. Under his ring name, and with the World Championship Wrestling, he has been one of the shortlisted as most efficient wrestlers. Beginning with his time in the American Wrestling Association (AWA), Hall maintained a perennially high profile as a wrestler, as he became a four time WWF Intercontinental Champion, a two time WCW United States Heavyweight Champion, a one-time WCW World Television Champion and a nine time world tag team champion (seven times in WCW, once in TNA, and once in the AWA). In addition, Hall is a two time world champion, having won the WWC Universal Heavyweight Championship and the USWA Unified World Heavyweight Championship. He is also notable for being a founding member of the New World Order (nWo). On April 5, 2014, Hall was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

Scott was born on October 20, 1958 in Miami, Florida, USA. He was born into a military family, due to the army life, he grew up as a traveller and spent his high school years at the All American High in Munich, Germany. When his family returned to the States, he attended St Mary's College in Maryland where he graduated with a degree in Pre Med, with hopes to become a children's doctor. By this time Scott was already training to be a wrestler. He made his ring debut in South Carolina in 1984, and was picked up by the now defunct AWA soon after.

Hall began his career in 1984 in Championship Wrestling from Florida (CWF) and soon began a feud with Dusty Rhodes. At first he and Dan Spivey debuted as American Starship. Mean time Hall had a ring name of Starship Coyote. At first, American Starship were booked to wrestle infrequently; so much so that the two were given ground crew jobs for the Charlotte Orioles. They received a shot at NWA Central States Tag Team Champions Marty Jannetty and "Bulldog" Bob Brown, but lost the match.

Scott Hall joined the American Wrestling Association (AWA) in 1985, where he wrestled as "Magnum" Scott Hall and, later, "Big" Scott Hall. He wrestled as a babyface wrestler. Hall formed a tag team with his more experienced friend Curt Hennig, whom he later would credit for cultivating his early professional wrestling career. The team defeated Jimmy Garvin and Steve Regal for the AWA World Tag Team Championship on January 18, 1986, in a 58 minute match in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Scott Hall was brought into the National Wrestling Alliance's World Championship Wrestling (WCW) territory by Jim Ross in 1989, as part of the NWA's initiative to develop new, young stars. Almost a decade later without hitting major success in the wrestling world, Scott Hall signed with the WWF in 1992 as Razor Ramon, a shady and stylish Cuban American bully from Miami.

After 3 successful years as Razor, and some great matches, including the Ladder Match against the Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 10 (since voted the best Wrestlemania match of all time), Scott signed with WCW, where he had some of the most controversial years of his career. His May 1996 appearance on the Turner Broadcasting Monday Nitro program breathed life into a dying wrestling market when he instigated the New World Order. After winning several tag team golds with his best friend Kevin Nash, and a couple of singles US championships, Scott received an injury to his neck during a match with Jeff Jarrett in February 2000, which kept him off TV. Scott was fired from WCW in October of 2000, allegedly due to drunken behavior on a German tour prior to his injury. This extra ordinary former wrestler has eanred an estimated total net worth amount of $3 million dollars. 

Talking about his personal life, he has been married three times. First got married to Dana Lee Burgio on February 4, 1990 but got divorced in May 14, 1998. He has two children from his first marriage. Later in March 27, 1999 he married to Dana but again he got divorced in 2001. And then in May 19, 2006 he married to Jessica Hart but still he had to get divorced in 2007.
