Scott Hall reveals backstage story when Triple H was thrown “under the bus” by Shawn Michaels


WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall opens up about the 1996 Madison Square Garden incident

Former WWE and WCW wrestler Scott Hall (or Razor Ramon) speaks about the “Curtain Call” incident.

Speaking on Eric Bischoff‘s podcast 83 weeks, Scott Hall discussed how Triple H was ‘thrown under the bus by Shawn Michaels:

“He kind of threw Triple H under the bus that night at the Garden,” Hall said. “Triple H was supposed to get the big push. He was supposed to get the Stone Cold spot, they were grooming him for that but then Vince had to punish somebody. I was in Vince’s office when Shawn came in and pitched the curtain call. Vince was finally talking to me about staying and I was like it’s too late, I’m already done. Shawn came in and said ‘I want Razor to come out to the ring in my match,’ Vince said ‘Is it important to you?’ And [Shawn] said yeah, and [Vince] said ‘Well, make it happen.’ He knew, but I think what happened was, now the guys are trying to bring the business down.

Hall began his career alongside Triple H and Shawn Michaels and were in close connections
The Kliq was formed very young into their WWE careers and continued to grow

“The guys who were staying were really mad. I’m glad we did it. I didn’t plan it, it was all Shawn’s idea and he was the one staying. There’s a famous picture of Shawn wearing one of the early Outsiders shirts, I think he was doing that just to give him some kind of ammunition with Vince. It’s lonely at the top, that’s when [Michaels] may have started his pill use and alcohol use may have increased at the time.”

“Thank you to WWE Network for keeping us vital and all those guys in WWE. I’m making six figures just off of merch. Every once in a while, when you make an appearance, you get paid more. The funny part is, now that I hardly ever work for them or do anything, the payoffs are way better, it’s always first-class airfare, and they have a driver at the airport.”

Scott Hall is an inductee of the 2020 WWE Hall of Fame, alongside members of the New World Order.
