Which STILL HAPPENED during that weekend when he worked an independent show in Boston.
WWE did not set up a match for Nash for WrestleMania XVIII as a precaution, since in the event that Hall somehow screwed up and got fired at any time before the show, they would just be able to plug Nash into Hall's place as "Stone Cold" Steve Austin's opponent. (Note: Hall DID eventually screw up and get fired, but, it was a month later.)
Since 2012, however, DDP has been helping Hall and Jake the Snake to the point where they are now completely clean.
Breakup Breakout: Became a much bigger name than his American Starship partner Eagle (Dan Spivey.)
Captain Ersatz: Of himself. Early in his WCW run as one half of the Outsiders, he could not use the Razor Ramon gimmick for copyright reasons, so he simply used his real name and continued to talk, act and even dress like Razor Ramon. So much so that he was named personally as one of the several reasons the WWE threatened legal action during the early days of the nWo storyline.
Defeat Means Friendship: After losing to the 1-2-3 Kid on Raw, Razor turned face shortly after and became a mentor to The Kid.
Early Installment Weirdness: His run in the American Wrestling Association, years before achieving fame in the WWF. He sported a curly mullet, a large mustache, and bulked up to 300 pounds (which he attributed to steroids). In fact, pretty much anything he did before he developed the look he had as the Diamond Studd in 1991 would qualify. He was a blond in the two-ring battle royal at NWA The Great American Bash 89.
His early House Show appearances as Razor Ramon had him as a Badass Biker.
Earn Your Happy Ending: As of 2013, he's clean from drugs and alcohol for the first time in years, he's rebuilding his relationships with his children, regaining his life and reputation and his general health is the best it's been for years, but it's been a long, hard road with a lot of pain along the way.
The funniest part, is that he showed up for his (then) WWF audition, and was explicitly doing a Scarface impression to show he can "do characters". Vince McMahon, having literally never seen or been fully aware of the movie, thought Scott was doing an original concept. A bit of tweaking and name-brainstorming, and Razor Ramon was born.
I Was Quite a Looker: Compare the image for this page with the one linked to in the caption. Fifteen years makes a difference, but for most people it doesn't make that much of one. His various addictions had a hand in this.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He retained much of the same mannerisms he had as a heel long into his face turn. It's probably the reason his face turn was so successful, despite the fact that anti-heroes were very rare in pre-Attitude Era WWF.
Latin Lover: Chicas are for fun, man! Razor scars their hearts and doesn't care!
