 Scott Hall was Kind and helpful to Moss

The WWE SmackDown star Madcap Moss penned down a special eulogy for Scott Hall on Twitter. He said how Razor was the one who influenced him and wrote about the time Hall charged him money for copying his gimmick.

Moss wrote, “Scott Hall was 1 of my absolute favorites growing up. I’ve modeled much of what I do in ring after him- the first time he saw me wrestle he charged me $5 for gimmick infringement. Every time I had the chance to spend time with him, he was funny and cool, but also kind and helpful.”

His spirit will live on through his friends and family, and those of us who will try to be just 1% as cool as The Bad Guy. Thank you for everything, Scott.”

The former NXT superstar is currently a partner of Happy Corbin, in the SmackDown brand. Couple of weeks ago, ‘Riddy Mo’ landed on his neck following an inverted Alabama slam by Drew McIntyre at WWE Elimination Chamber.
