“I have to prepare my life without him in the present,” Kevin wrote on Monday.

Scott, 63 emerged in the 1990s alongside the likes of Hulk Hogan and Sean ‘X-Pac’ Waltman.

After falling and breaking a hip in early March, he had hip replacement surgery but suffered complications due to a blood clot, according to pro-wrestling website PW Torch.

Mick Foley wrote that Scott had been “a legend inside and outside the ring”.

Shane McMahon wrote that he was “perhaps the greatest to ever perform in the squared circle”.

Before news of Scott’s death broke, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson tweeted to say: “We need the “bad guy” back in the game” – a reference to Scott’s Hall of Fame speech from 2014.
