Place in History - The years were perhaps too kind to Scott Hall, who has had a whirlwind career if there ever has been one. However, he saw great successes and was a key player at pro-wrestling's peak in the late 1990s. After nearly a decade of not delivering on the promise he showed, Scott Hall finally started pulling his character together. In WCW, the Diamond Studd with his stubble, slicked hair and arrogance had a certain charm. The WWF took this character to the next level by adding a Tony Montana-inspired flare with gold necklaces, a toothpick and a bad accent. Although it seemed hooky, Razor Ramon got over and he was quickly propelled into the top of the card. He made the right friends, later dubbed "the Kliq," worked with the right people and was a key star in the WWF's "New Generation." Razor was poised for a run on top when he and Kevin Nash suddenly left for WCW and formed an invading group, the New World Order. This storyline took off and WCW quickly took over the WWF in the ratings. As time passed, Hall became a crucial supporting character and again was in a powerful circle of friends. As the nWo monster consumed WCW, Hall began to be consumed by personal demons. Scott Hall continually ran up against problems outside of business and they kept him from moving to the next level. In 1994, he looked like a man with main event potential, champion potential and more, but in a mere five years, he was a shell of a man. Hall struggled to find a spot as his game had dropped off and he was deemed untrustworthy. New Japan, ECW, WWF and the upstart NWA-TNA gave him chances, but Hall was just not what he needed to be. Scott Hall keeps showing up as a star of pro-wrestling's peak years, but is one of pro-wrestling's sad cases that amazingly survived his self-destructive ways.
