Would a PRIME Scott Hall be THE MAN if he was around right now?

Under the razor gimmick or otherwise?

6'7"

290lbs

very good worker

charisma

"the look"

Dude had it all, would he be "it" if he was around today instead of the 90's?

I think he would be booked to be the next guy until he fucks up.

Re: Would a PRIME Scott Hall be THE MAN if he was around right now?

Based fully on look and charisma and in ring ability you could make a solid claim he would have a shot the be the guy in the modern day WWE assuming he was just getting started. At the same time you would have to figure did he have all the drug and alcohol issue in this day and age as well. If so he most certainly wouldn't be at the top and very possibly wouldn't even be working for the WWE for that matter seeing how cautious that are with guys today.

Its really a flip of a coin answer in my opinion, it's a nice thought but you also have to consider could he put his demons aside as well.

No, his career was succumb to his alcoholism.

Scott hall sucked in '94 so why would he be any different in 2015?

Pre Razor Ramon circa Scott Hall would have gone over like gangbusters but unless his demons were contained I doubt it but then again in today's WWE they would have kept him in check now inspeaking of former NWO guys who would be a success today I'm going with Kevin Nash.

back then he was up against:

Bret Hart
Shawn Michaels
Prime undertaker

Now he'd be up against

Roman Reigns
and....er
