WWE Hall of Famer Scott Hall defined an entire generation of pro wrestling. He made a name for himself as Razor Ramon during the early 90s. Hall also helped change the course of pro wrestling for good after being part of the nWo. That being said, it seems a famous pro wrestling seamstress who designed Scott Hall’s iconic gear, never really liked it herself.
Sandra Gray, the former head seamstress for WWE and current head seamstress for AEW, recently discussed some of her most iconic work during her time in WCW on the A2theK podcast.
Gray revealed that one of her most iconic outfits was created for Scott Hall during the time when WCW was doing the blood drip thing. According to Gray, there was no internet to turn to, so she had to rely solely on her imagination to create the look.
Despite being uncertain of how the outfit would turn out, Gray’s creation became synonymous with Hall, Kevin Nash, and Hollywood Hogan as they took over WCW with the NWO. Gray expressed surprise at the lasting impact of the design, as the same exact look is still being recreated today.
She admitted that she didn’t think it looked like blood, but it apparently looked like blood to someone. Gray had drawn out the design on a piece of paper, and it went on to become one of the most iconic looks in pro wrestling history.
“One of my most iconic outfits was [when] WCW was doing the blood drip thing for Scott Hall back in the day, and I’d never liked that outfit because looking back now, there was not internet to go to. I couldn’t Google what the drips looked like or anything, so I had to just get what I thought it looked like.”
Even though she was unsure of how it would turn out, Gray had created the look that became synonymous with Hall, as he, Kevin Nash and Hollywood Hogan took over WCW with the NWO.
I had no clue that it would become so iconic, and we’re still recreating that same exact look today that I didn’t think looked like blood, but I guess it looked like blood to somebody,” she said, noting that she drew it all out on a piece of paper.
Scott Hall passed away at the age of 63 and the pro wrestling world will forever remember his contributions to the world of professional wrestling. After all, there can never be anyone like Scott Hall in the business ever again.
