Steven Hall is a retired American professional wrestler who appeared primarily under the name Tom Stone. He is notable for his appearances with the American Wrestling Association (AWA) and the World Wrestling Federation (WWF).[1]

Career[edit]

Stone began wrestling with the WWF in 1987, appearing frequently as a jobber. He would go on to be remembered primarily for this work, and later became a well-regarded trainer for other wrestlers.[2] During the declining days of the AWA, he joined that promotion and received greater billing (including wrestling tag-team matches with Nick Bockwinkel),[3] though he still routinely lost to the AWA's recognized stars. He was also one of the notable jobbers (along with Jake Milliman) to take part in the AWA's Team Challenge Series.

Leading up to the WWF's 1990 Survivor Series, as part of a storyline involving Jake "The Snake" Roberts being blinded by Rick Martel, Stone defeated Roberts via disqualification.[4]
