Home » WWE News » Kevin Nash Reacts To Backlash Over Interview Comments, Thinks CM Punk Should Join The nWo

Speaking to Steven Muehlhausen of The Fight Club Chicago at last week’s Chicago Comic Con, Kevin Nash addressed his controversial Grantland.com remarks stating that the professional wrestling industry died at WrestleMania XX when the pay-per-view event concluded with “Vanilla Midgets” Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero—small-statured, gifted technical wrestlers that lacked big in-ring personalities but were beloved by fans—reigning atop as world champions.

“(People getting mad) at something I said ten years ago, yeah okay. It’s great that it’s still relevant ten years later. I guess I’m not allowed to have an opinion,” Nash said, who had also claimed in the Grantland.com interview that his comments regarding wrestlers such as Benoit and Guerrero were “a double work.”

He stated in the Grantland.com interview that he has the same problem with today’s “Internet heroes,” CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.

“They are not bigger than life,” Nash told Grantland.com. “I bet they could both walk through airports and not be noticed unless they have a gimmick shirt on and the belt.”

Nash is now suggesting that his remarks concerning Punk and Bryan are “a work.” He tells Muehlhausen, “Because they are on TV and if I would want to have an angle with somebody, I think I would want to work with the top guys.”

Nash says Punk would fit in well with his proposed nWo relaunch.

“He has that nWo grit to him, he kinda runs by his own accord,” Nash said. “He’s very anti-establishment, and I personally like him. I like hanging out with him. So if I’m going to work with somebody, I’m going to work with someone that I enjoy hanging out with.”

Nash also discusses SummerSlam with Triple H vs. Brock Lesnar and notes a never before known fact about the night D-Generation X “invaded” WCW. The interview is available at www.sportstownchicago.com/kevinnash.

  • Raziel

    Does think that he’d stand out at an airport because of who he is or the fact that he’s seven feet tall?

  • Greg

    Nash is just sad that the wrestling world is happier without him. An nwo relaunch wud actually be great if they did it right. No Nash tho. Thats how cena shud go heel. He is the younger generations hulk hogan anyway he shud go the same route as hogan.

  • chronoxiong

    Nash is an attention whore. Enough said.

  • Yes! 3X

    Jeez when will Nash get it throgh his thick skull? An NWO relaunch with him isn’t happening. He’s 53 years old. Just give it up already. His desperation for attention is just pitiful.

  • Austin

    The NWO should never come back, Nash never should either

  • sean

    wow first he puts down punk then he says he’ll fit in nicley in the relaunch nwo

  • nikki

    They are not bigger than life,” Nash told Grantland.com. “I bet they could both walk through airports and not be noticed unless they have a gimmick shirt on and the belt.”…this is true unless you are 12….hell i partyed with kevin he is from Trenton Michigan..me i am from Detroit.As far as it being a work! This internet shit is really starting to ruing the wrestling world and it is wwf/e’s own fault because they push this on us and on the wrestlers

  • MaNic

    how old is that interview? nash has his grey hair…

  • Bill

    I feel like Punk hates the kind of guys that ran the original nWo. Hogan is basically the kind of “man” he was sticking it to during his shoot promo last year. I mean, it’d be interesting to see how they do it, but I doubt it would be rewarding or that Punk would even go with it. But he has been wearing a black & white attire for the past month…

  • cyndi

    when are people going to learn that yes its more then okay to have opinion he was being interviewed (surprisingly) but again if your going to say something you should least expect someone to have a problem and as long as hes been should know that

  • poko

    The guy is desperate to get back in the lime-light or into a position where he feels like he’s in control. He’s so jealous of Triple H that he can taste it.

    He’s “not allowed to have an opinion” but it’s a work? Which is it? And if it’s a work then what’s the point?

  • StocktonJoe

    Actually, it’s Nash who is irrelevant. Whether this was Nash’s play to become relevant again, or someone else’s to make him relevant again, that I don’t know. But all this flip and flap and fluttering of wing was/is done to bring Nash’s name back into view.

  • Robinson

    Nash is a fuckin joke hes just saying that BC of all the bad respones he got. What a tool in everyway shape and form.

  • SYM

    I knew the Nash thing was Fake. He said it Ten Years ago and you all lost your teeth and were talking like you’re Jaw Broke.
