Grantland.com published a lengthy article Tuesday on the life and controversial wrestling career of Kevin Nash with the six-time world champion notably reiterating his stance on “Vanilla Midgets,” a dismissive term he used behind-the-scenes in the late ’90s in World Championship Wrestling to describe small-statured, gifted technical wrestlers such as Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero. Nash said the professional wrestling industry died at WrestleMania XX when the pay-per-view event concluded with Benoit and Guerrero—both of whom were under six-feet-tall—reigning atop as world champions and emotionally celebrating. Chris Jericho, who worked his way up the wrestling ranks alongside Benoit and Guerrero, publicly took offense to Nash’s remarks and responded with another commonly used stance.

He tweeted late Tuesday evening, “Funny how @realkevinnash says wrestling “died” when Benoit and Guerrero were champs-Yet the worst year for WWE biz was 95 when he was on top.”

The oft-used point originated from Wrestling Observer editor Dave Meltzer, who has repeated stated over the years that WWE had its worst financial period in company history in 1995 when Nash held the WWF Championship as Diesel.

Nash responded to Jericho’s tweet minutes later, writing, “Once again the puppet master pulls the marks strings .Knew Jericho was a closet mark.First one eliminated on a bulls–t sing show…REALLY!!”

Jericho quickly shot back, “Hope @realkevinnash doesn’t tear his quad tweeting! #typicalbigman #nwothirdwheel.”

Nash’s interview comments triggering Jericho’s rebuttal were: “When Benoit and Guerrero hugged [at the end of WrestleMania XX], that was the end of the business. Has business been the same since that WrestleMania? Has it come close to the Austin era? Has it come close to the nWo or the Hogan era? You put two fucking guys that were great workers that were the same height as the fucking referees, and I’m sorry, man. Are you going to watch a porno movie with a guy with a three-inch dick? Even if you’re not gay, you will not watch a porno movie with a guy with a three-inch dick. That’s not the standard in porno films. So you put a 5-foot-7 guy as your world champion.”

    @Sym shut the fuk up

    LMAO! Funny thing is, the supposed fake SYM’s are the ones who actually make decent post.

    Jericho quickly shot back, “Hope @realkevinnash doesn’t tear his quad tweeting! #typicalbigman #nwothirdwheel.”
    That cracked me up.
    @ sym i don’t get why they allow multiple people to use the same name i’ve seen another d on here. nothing against him just not sure why they allow more than 1 person to use the same s/n

  • Sym shut the fuk up

    Sym is similar to Kevin Nash they both love to bitch and complain

  • sam mccourt

    @SYM for fuck sake if you’re that bothered by it change your damn name and stop whining about it

  • rko

    Hey aren’t Nash and mysterio supposed to be tight? I wonder how he feels about nash’s comments. Mysterio has been champion and main evented a few times.

  • Fan

    Then according to Nash Khali and Big Show should be champs…

  • ant

    Anyone who repeatedly uses the word “mark” as an insult is an idiot, and yes, a mark themselves.

  • Ajd

    Jericho benoit n eddie was in wcw n couldnt do shit due to NASH….and most of their success came from the wwf/wwe jericho undisputed champ, benoit world champ n eddie wwe champ well nash made a comeback n what happened…he tears his quad. So who won this…..Y2J. Its a shame nash gotta pick on someone who is not even alive to get heat.

  • Nick

    You cant blame Jericho for defending the honor of his friends.
    What benoit did was awfull but you cannot deny the fact that he had a big impact on this industry, bad and good.
    And Eddie is just one of the greatest wrestlers who ever lived.

  • Jimbo

    I like Nash, but Jericho is right.

  • rabid

    As much as i respect nash… Sometimes i think he needs to open his eyes and get rid of the big man is best mindset. Both benoit and latino heat had amazing matches during that run . Look at the randy orton fued leading into summerslam or the entire series with jbl just too mention a few.

  • SYM

    WOW! I can be SYM too, great, duplicate names on here rule, I am sym, real life heel, blah blah I am a fluffer

  • scooter

    I hope this ends with Nash challenging Jericho to a shoot fight like he did with Warrior. My moneys on Jericho getting Nash in a front face lock and not letting him go.

  • nikki

    Twitter fight…….how fun!

  • questionable

    I like Nash, I just think his comments are unbelievably disrespectful and why even make a comment like that the championships have had some low points I agree but that was not one of them

  • yofits

    Kerwin Nash is still alive? LOL thought he was dead.

  • LILLIAN SANTANA

    Nash will never be as great as Jericho Benoit or Eddie .How dare he put down these legends.

  • ant

    SYM=Joke account

  • Tyler(:

    @SYM there could be a different SYM posting every time, this site for some reason has decided to let any person go by any name even if it’s duplicate. -.-

  • SYM

    How many of you fake SYM’s are there!

  • Pete

    I loved the comment about tearing his quad.

  • ice-cream bar superstar

    We should all really stop reading what Nash has to say. He is just desperate for attention, and desperate to stay relevant.

  • Hunter

    Kevin Nash loves to troll.

  • Dave

    #ownedbyjericho.

  • sam

    @bill

    im suprised he never said that at any point, that would of been gold.

  • nnac

    nash- the same guy that defeated goldberg and lost to the poke to doom…

  • Tombstone

    Way to say t Jericho! Smaller man putting the “Big Man in his place!

    Guess the new “My twitter account was hacked” Is now My W-E screen name was copied. LOL. Damn Kurt Angle wannabe.

  • SYM

    These fake accounts are tickling my fanny.

  • barry horowitz

    HAHAHAHAHA sym that was a hilarious joke. as long as it was a joke cuz otherwise you’re an idiot

  • RAZOPOWER

    I love Nash, but even I think what he said was “”just to stuiped””…. Now if this was the Nash we know Kevin to be , I would of said “” just to sweet””

  • Tyler(:

    Nash is boring on Twitter it’s more like riddles than actual insults.

  • SYM

    Another fake SYM could atleast use grammar properly

  • Robinson

    @sym, I know thats not thebreal sym. But anyways, I could imagine this is gonna offend alot of guys.

  • Bill

    Summary of Jericho’s response to Nash: “Would you please…shut the hell up!”

  • Anh

    Go, Jericho, go !!! Own that old douchebag !!

  • SYM

    Jericho needs to show respect to Nash, Nash made wrestling what it is today with Scott Hall.
