Well he did.  Years of abuse to his body probably caused the blood clots and heart attack after he broke his hip.  Broken hips set off a chain reaction in unhealthy or aging bodies.
I think the same thing happened more or less to Chris Candido. Only difference was I think he broke his leg.

Maybe. Candido was half Hall’s age and a broken leg is a lot less serious. It was really a freak thing. I don’t know if there was ever a lawsuit, but I feel like something had to be missed at the hospital during surgery. They released him and he was fine and he even worked TNA again in a wheelchair and then he was dead. 
Sometimes they fuck up putting a cast on and that can cause blood clots to develop. Happened to my dad about a decade ago. The clot developed while his leg was in the cast, and broke off after the cast came off. It travelled to the base of his sternum…and no further. Docs thought he was a goner but it just stopped and they could treat it. He’s still alive today.
If candido had a dr nick putting his cast on and taking it off, without noticing signs clots may have formed, it would have happened quick without him knowing what was really happening. My dad had no idea what was going on when the clot dislodged and began moving.

I don’t think I ever knew their was a Topps 1992 set.  I had the 1991 WCW Impel set at one point.

I bought my son a few unopened packs of WCW cards from 1991 recently; he really enjoyed opening them up and seeing what was there.

That '91 set had a few Jim Ross cards.  When he was doing the WSB Sunday night show around that time, he told listeners you could send them in through the mail with a SASE, and he's autograph them and send back.  I still have the two that he autographed for me.  More amazing was that I was somehow able to pick up an Atlanta radio station in Chicago in the Fall of 1991.  
The other memory of that '91 set, coming off the junk wax era, was seeing entire hobby boxes of those cards on clearance at KB Toys in 1993 and 1994 for $3.00.  Not a pack, but the entire box.

I'm now remembering what I thought was one of the top 5 house show matches I've ever seen live. December 29, 1998 at the Nassau Coliseum. Scott Hall did the honors for Scott Hall. A very, very solid 20 minutes. No feud, nothing on the line, just a straight up wrestling match. These guys put everything into this and it was an honor to watch two artists at work. Say what you want about Hall, the guy wasn't selfish in the ring.

Only released in the UK.  I didn’t even know it existed until somewhat recently.  Looks to be quite hard to come by.

There is a video online of Scott and Larry Zbyszko watching one of his old AWA tag matches and he does not hesitate to point out that Curt carried the team and how green he was and the mistakes he made. It's a fun watch.

Jim Ross kicked off Dynamite with "Hey yo! It's Wednesday night and you know what that means" for the double Scott Hall/Brodie Lee tribute.

The issue with Candido was the airplane trip, I'm not sure that was cleared but the process of going thru the compression and decompression on an airliner definitely was a major contributing factor, if not the outright cause of the blood clots that killed Candido.

Candido was told by doctors not to fly after an operation on his leg.

Impact put Hall's picture up at the start of the broadcast tonight and when Jay White and Chris Bey did the "Too Sweet", they referenced Hall's death. The commentary was clearly just taped even though the matches have been in the can for a while.
