Scott Hall Talks About Not Retiring Macho Man, Not Liking Bret Hart, And Vince Never Having Seen 'Scarface'

WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall recently spoke with Total Wrestling Magazine UK for their November 2016 print edition. The full interview can be found at this link and below are highlights they submitted.

The debut of his Razor Ramon character:

Dax Harwood vs. Rocky Romero Announced For 8/20 NJPW STRONG, Full Card

"I felt really flattered because Vince [McMahon] left TV personally to direct my vignettes, he flew with me to south beach Miami to do it. I knew things were cool and my DVD came out last July where they showed footage of Vince into the character. He'd never seen Scarface, so when I came out doing the Scarface gimmick, he thought I was a genius, I never told him. I don't know why they don't introduce new characters with vignettes like that anymore."

Vince changing plans for his pay-per-view debut at Survivor Series 1992:

"It was supposed to be me and Ric Flair against Macho Man and Ultimate Warrior. Vince used to lay story lines out way ahead of time. Going into this match I was supposed to hurt Randy and retire him so that he could go to broadcasting and they were going to keep pushing Razor as a major heel force, but Warrior held Vince up for more money but he wasn't having it this time, so they brought Mr Perfect back from announcing to wrestling. When plans change like that, in that situation you have to feature a decent substitute otherwise the audience will feel they got screwed. Warrior doesn't show up and you put Perfect in, good replacement."

Wrestling WWE Champion Bret Hart at Royal Rumble 1993:

"Going into that if I had have retired Savage I would have been red hot. I would have had some good steam going into that. I'm not a Bret Hart fan. To me, Bret's really selfish. If you watch, there's points in that match where I'm hitting Bret with what's regarded as a hell of a working punch; I'm hitting Bret and he's not even moving, he's not even registering it. It was what it was, he was the new champion and he needed a win, which he got."
