WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash has explained in no uncertain terms why he thinks it’s best for WWE business if Vince McMahon stays away.
Vince McMahon announced his retirement as WWE Chairman in July 2022 at a time when he was under investigation by the company for alleged sexual misconduct and making ‘hush money’ payments to female ex-WWE employees.
The investigation into those allegations has come to an end but a new report has suggested that Vince McMahon is being pursued for damages from more claimants including a former WWE referee who has long alleged that she was raped by McMahon in the eighties.
That same report suggested that Vince McMahon intended to try and return to WWE and was of the belief that he received “bad advice” to step away as he believed the allegations against him would blow over.
Speaking on his Kliq This podcast, Kevin Nash revealed he had somewhat selfish reasons for not wanting to see any comeback from McMahon take place.
“I mean I know he has voting rights, but speaking personally from my life, I enjoyed the stock price going up…like, leave it the f*ck alone. When he quit, the stock analysts said it would probably top somewhere around 100, so they still got some growth, you know?”
Not everyone agrees with Nash, however, as another WWE Hall of Famer recently stated that they’d see “no problem” with Vince McMahon making a comeback.
