Wade Keller of PWTorch reported that Hall had suffered a fall and a subsequent broken hip earlier this month before undergoing surgery.
The issue caused serious implications involving blood clots which allegedly led to three heart attacks and Hall being placed on life support.
On Monday, Hall's close friend and former pro wrestling colleague Kevin Nash suggested that Hall's life support would be discontinued.
He wrote on Instagram: "Scott's on life support. Once his family is in place they will discontinue life support. I'm going to lose the one person on this planet I've spent more of my life with than anyone else.
"My heart is broken and I'm so very fucking sad," Nash added. "I love Scott with all my heart but now I have to prepare my life without him in the present. I've been blessed to have a friend that took me at face value and I him.
"When we jumped to WCW we didn't care who liked or hated us. We had each other and with the smooth Barry Bloom we changed wrestling both in content and pay for those......alot that disliked us.
"We were the "Outsiders " but we had each other. Scott always felt he wasn't worthy of the afterlife. Well God please have some gold plated toothpicks for my brother. My life was enriched with his take on life. He wasn't perfect but as he always said: "The last perfect person to walk the planet they nailed to a cross."
"As we prepare for life without him just remember there goes a great guy you ain't going to see another one like him again.
"See Ya down the road Scott. I couldn't love a human being any more than I do you."
A huge amount of tributes have been paid to Hall in recent hours, including from the likes of Triple H, Mick Foley and Shane McMahon.
Triple H wrote: "I’m gutted… lost a brother. I love you Scott!! I’ll see you down the road…"
Foley said: "Scott Hall was a towering figure among his contemporaries – a legend inside and outside the ring. My deepest condolences to his friends, family and everyone who loved him. #RIPScottHall."
McMahon wrote: "I am so deeply saddened by the loss of Scott Hall, a singular talent and in my view, perhaps the greatest to ever perform in the squared circle. I will miss you, my friend. God speed. “Hey yo”
