News on Nash’s WWE Legends Deal, Backstage News on John Laurinaitis

– WWE is looking to hire someone with a sports background to groom for working in talent relations. There is lots of talk within WWE about John Laurinaitis and his long-term future with the company. It’s no secret that Triple H isn’t a fan of Laurinaitis and Laurinaitis has always been compared in a negative way to Jim Ross when it comes to talent relations. It was discussed after Money in the Bank that Laurinaitis may be established as a new TV character, similar to how Patterson and Brisco were to Vince McMahon years ago.

– Kevin Nash is reportedly is signed to a different WWE Legends deal than everyone else. Usually the Legends deals are that you make a percentage of the revenue your name and likeness generate, and they pay you a small amount of per year as a retainer of sorts. Nash is receiving a significant amount of money and as you know, right now is doing very little work for the company. Nash is said to be frustrated because he thought the reaction he got at the Royal Rumble would lead to something else on TV.

    He would be a good manager for Ziggler,Barret,or Skip Sheffield if he ever comes back to TV

    Ok, so if HHH isnt a fan of Laurinaitis, why would they have him work as a stooge to HHH seeing as HHH will be taking the Vince role it would seem?
    Makes no sense.

    With Triple H in charge (on TV and moreso now backstage), I think we’ll be seeing Big Daddy Cool on TV sooner rather than later. The Kliq is running the damn show now! I expect to see much more of Shawn Michaels and Sean Waltman as well.

    That was a nice reaction at the Rumble. I don’t want to see Nash fulltime but he still should have had a match at Mania. Nash vs Big Show would have been great. I can understand why he is upset because he sitting at home and not wrestling. I wouldn’t complain to get paid and sit home though.

    @ Nando: Takers needs a great worker to carry him at this point. Taker Vs Angle would be incredible…

  • nando

    kevin nash could start preparing for wrestlemania 28 against undertaker. we know nash ended goldbergs streak, the storyline could go well about ending undertakers streak, witch of course, will not happen.

    @ Marky Mark

    Probably PTW aka Prime Time Wrestling or BCW aka Border City Wrestling.

    sorry, BOSS, not BOOS ha ha ha ha sorry

  • Starship Pain

    Nash can be some sort of adviser to the new boos, Triple H… Well, it can be cool…

  • paulbstoltz

    I want nash back. hes still got it

  • The real wrestling god

    Your not in Tna Nash. They don’t need your old ass taking any of the younger guys spotlight.

  • jimbo jones

    maybe John Laurinaitis will be the anonymous RAW GM.

  • Bill

    @POF :(, that would’ve been way better than the match Big Show had at Wrestlemania.

  • Pissed Off Fan :(

    Didnt he make a pitch that he wanted to wrestling Big Show at mania?

  • Spot Fest

    I would have expected to see a little more from Nash also. However, how frustrating can it be when you are making more money for fewer appearances? Judging by this article alone, sounds like he has it made!

  • Frank Booth

    Will laurinaitis have a skid mark in his underwear like patterson did?

  • DuffManLovesHimSomeWrestling

    He is frustrated? Nash had his time in the spotlight. Not saying I wouldn’t want to see him make a special appearance now and then but I wouldn’t want him on television full time, unless he takes a manager role to help elevate guys or like Kane and Jericho, putting people over. Though I doubt his ego will allow him to do that if the opportunity came…

  • Marky Mark

    Nash is taking indie bookings, he’s already scheduled to appear in Michigan sometime later this year. Can’t remember the org, otherwise i’d link to their facebook.

  • theMark

    oooh noooo…Nash might freak out and become…SUPER SHREDDER!!!
