Scott Hall, two-time WWE Hall of Famer and wrestling legend, died aged 63 Monday, March 14, 2022. We want to honor him, also known during his tenure in WWF as Razor Ramon, by acknowledging his legacy in wrestling video games. To date, Scott Hall has appeared in 26 wrestling games, including the latest WWE 2K22, according to a list by Cage Match. Let’s go over each and every video game appearance of this wrestling legend, looking back to how his persona has been portrayed in video games throughout the years.
Scott Hall’s Wrestling Games Appearances, In Chronological Order
1. WWF Royal Rumble (SNES, Sega Genesis 1993)
Scott Hall’s first-ever video game appearance was as Razor Ramon in the Super Nintendo game WWF Royal Rumble released in 1993. At this point, Scott Hall has just rejoined WWF, reinventing himself into the persona that made him hip and cool, the Razor Ramon character. In the game, he can do drop kicks, suplexes, and of course, his iconic Razor’s Edge finisher. His sprite in the game looks a lot like him, thanks to his very recognizable curly hair. No toothpicks, though.
2. WWF King of the Ring (NES, GameBoy, 1993)
Oddly enough, a few months after debuting in video games through the SNES, Razor Ramon would appear next on the GameBoy and the NES in the King of the Ring game. He’s still recognizable thanks to his curly hair, but his in-ring sprite could easily be mistaken for any other big guy wrestler. His moveset in the game is also very limited, and he can’t do his signature moves in this game.
3. WWF Rage In The Cage (Sega CD, 1993)
Razor Ramon appears in the Rage In The Cage follow-up to the WWF Royal Rumble game. While appearing with the same sprite and moveset, Rage In The Cage upped the presentation as it used full-motion videos of each of the wrestlers in the wrestler select screen performing their signature finisher, so we get to see a clip of Razor Ramon executing the Razor’s Edge on his opponents in full glory FMV in this game.
4. WWF Raw (32X, Game Gear, Sega Genesis, SNES, GameBoy 1994)
WWF Raw was the first-ever wrestling video game to give each wrestler their own unique moveset, which means our big bad guy got some cool new moves unique to his own character in this game. Razor appears in all of the versions of this game, having one of the highest strength stats on the roster. His 32X and Sega Genesis renders look like him alright, but the same can’t be said for his appearance in the Game Gear and the GameBoy.
5. WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game (Arcades, NES, PC, 32X, Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn, PlayStation, SNES, 1995)
This game is all about arcade fun, and while the models look realistic thanks to the digitized graphics of the game, it has the most unrealistic movesets. Read: The best-looking Razor’s Edge animations in existence.
6. WCW vs. nWo: World Tour (N64, 1997)
I bet back in the day, fans were already thrilled that the game features 3D graphics, and while models for the likes of Sting are recognizable thanks to his face paint, anyone else can only be recognized by their ring attire, Scott Hall included. It’s funny seeing him with his fire red boots and hairy chest, though, but at the very least they got his move set on point in this game.
7. Virtual Pro Wrestling 64 (N64, 1997)
Made using the same engine as WCW vs. nWo: World Tour, Scott Hall’s appearance in this game is exactly the same as the one before, with the exact same move sets as well.
8. WCW Nitro (PlayStation, N64, PC, 1998)
This one is memorable for having an FMV of the wrestlers play out addressing their opponents or the player in the wrestler select screen. For Scott Hall, he says: “Yo, Chico. You selected Scott Hall. Get ready for a wild ride on the outside,” before throwing his toothpick at the camera and gesturing “come at me.” Classic Scott Hall. As for his model, though, everyone’s look worse here than the previous entry, but he’s still recognizable thanks to his tan and in-ring attire.
9. WCW/nWo Revenge (N64, 1998)
Cube graphics are improving every year, and the N64’s rendition of Hall in this game is a good mix of computer-generated with a face that is digitized. His entrance here is also on-point (at least for the technology at the time), with Scott doing his iconic strut and his wingspan arm stretch in the ring.
10. WCW/nWo Thunder (PlayStation, 1998)
While the N64 game released this year was arguably a better game, PlayStation owners still got a game from THQ. This game is notable for its heavy use of FMVs, so we get to see a lot of clips with Scott Hall in this game. Similar to WCW Nitro before it, it features wrestlers addressing the player at the wrestler select screen, which is always a nice touch.
11. WCW Mayhem (N64, GameBoy, PlayStation, 1999)
At this point, we’re getting better graphics, albeit still not as realistic. We’re again using here a version of Scott Hall with a cubic body and digitized face. The Scott here is the nWo Wolfpac version, with the red and black replaced by black and white in his in-ring attire.
12. WCW Backstage Assault (N64, PlayStation, 2000)
Scott’s vest comes back for the first time since WWF WrestleMania: The Arcade Game in this game. Sadly, his model isn’t as good as the one in the previous WCW games. The version we get here is oddly thin-armed and devoid of any muscles. Plus his front curl hair hilariously runs down his face down to his lips in this game. It’s always fun watching Scott Hall hit his opponents with a Razor’s Edge on top of backstage items in this game, though, and watching him dance awkwardly in his win animation.
13. WWF With Authority! (PC, 2001)
The first-ever wrestling card video game, this one was meh at best and lame at worst. All of the wrestlers here look realistic enough – especially when you consider that they just put their pictures in cards in this game and called it a day. There are no renders here, folks.
14. WWE WrestleMania X8 (GameCube, 2002)
One of the most iconic games ever and what arguably ushered in the golden age of wrestling games, WrestleMania X8 was the full package: the most realistic looking wrestler models thus far, with complete entrances with music and mannerisms fully animated. Scott Hall in this game looks like the real deal – it just sucks that at this point you’re playing the inferior version of their nWo characters.
15. Fire Pro Wrestling 2 (GBA, 2002)
Fire Pro Wrestling never had its focus on the graphics, but still, Scott Hall looks recognizable here, not only because of his ring attire, but because the pixel graphics were in fact really detailed. From his slick hair and morning-after shave, it’s undeniably him. The game looks really crisp on the GBA.
16. Fire Pro Wrestling Returns (PS2, 2005)
The graphics here is much more improved compared to the GBA version, but the extra details made the models look a bit duller than the colorful GBA version. Still, the wrestlers here are designed really well, but at this point, we were nearing the end of Scott Hall’s wrestling career. (The TNA tenure, doesn’t count. Please, we just want to erase that from the continuity.) That means the Scott Hall we get here is old and tired-looking. Still looking cool and slick, though, big man.
17. WWE 2K14 (Xbox 360, PS3, 2013)
Scott won’t appear in another wrestling game until eight years later on the PS3, debuting with his nWo buddies and also as part of the Outsiders in WWE 2K14. Realism has become the standard at this point, so of course, we have here a perfectly-recreated version of Scott Hall for the time. Seeing him rendered like this at the time was a treat, especially since this was the first time he received such treatment in a video game. This will also be just the start of his repeated appearances in WWE 2K games, which is interspersed with his appearance in other games, such as:
18. WWE SuperCard (Android, iOS, 2014)
Another card-based game that simply plasters wrestlers’ portraits on cards, of course, Scott looks like Scott in his rendition here.
19. WWE 2K16 (Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, 2015)

WWE 2K15 didn’t include Scott Hall or Razor Ramon in its roster, so the next time we say the big bad guy was in WWE 2K16. He almost didn’t make the cut here either, only appearing as a DLC inclusion, in spite of life-long buddy Diesel / Big Daddy Cool / Kevin Nash being in the base game. He appears in this game as his WWE Return Scott Hall Outsiders persona.
20. WWE Champions (Android, iOS, 2015)
In the odd mix of match-3 and wrestling that works for some reason, the WWE Champions mobile game features Scott Hall in different versions: Outsider Scott Hall, Hall of Fame Scott Hall (painted like a bronze statue), and as “The Bad Guy” Razor Ramon. He looks dashing in this cartoonish version of his, which I think fits well with his humor and good nature.
21. WWE 2K17 (Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, PC, 2016)
We get two versions of Scott again in this game, as his WWF Razor Ramon and his Scott Hall return character. We don’t really feel the need to expound on this as each successive WWE 2K version at this point just got incrementally better each year, so please accept our video embeds for the next few entries, until we discuss the latest entry: WWE 2K22.
22. WWE 2K18 (Switch, Xbox One, PS4, PC, 2017)
23. WWE WrestleMania: Steel Cage Challenge (TVG, 2018)
And then we have this oddball in our list, a really old game rearing its head before returning to obscurity. WWF WrestleMania: Steel Cage Challenge originally came out in 1992 for the NES. That version didn’t include Scott Hall. But when the game got revived and ported for the handheld TV Game version WWE WrestleMania: Steel Cage Challenge game, Razor Ramon was brought in to replace The Mountie in the roster. Odd decision, but at least he got in.
24. WWE 2K19 (Xbox One, PS4, PC, 2018)
25. WWE 2K20 (Xbox One, PS4, PC, 2019)
26. WWE 2K22 (Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, PS5, PC, 2022)
And we finally caught up with the most recent release: WWE 2K22. With a brand-new engine, WWE 2K22 has the most-realistic looking graphics yet, and Razor Ramon looks almost life-like. In hindsight, it’s very apt that WWE 2K22 offered the nWo as the pre-order bonus DLC for the game, a fitting tribute to Scott Hall’s legacy, and it came just in time before his passing. We’re happy that he was recognized one final time before he left us, and we’re sure that a lot of fans will be playing as him, either as Razor Ramon, Scott Hall nWo, or the Scott Hall in his WWE return, in the coming days as we all pay our respects to this legendary and well-loved wrestling legend.
