Kevin Nash has sought to set the record straight about some comments made regarding Hulk Hogan.
One of the newest WWE-affiliated programs is the WWE Legends show which airs on A&E. As the name implies, the show looks at various high-profile and mythical wrestlers and groups and discusses their impact on the industry.
One of the first episodes covered the New World Order (NWO) and showcased the stable’s highest points and their low points and more controversial moments. To get an insider’s perspective on the goings on within the NWO both on-screen and backstage, A&E brought in Kevin Nash to comment on what happened.
However, according to Nash himself on his Kliq This podcast, some of his comments towards and regarding Hulk Hogan were edited and therefore make it seem like he has a negative opinion towards the Hulkster.
It’s funny because people who are in our business, in our industry, that watched a lot of that happen live, like Eric (Bischoff) is talking on that and he says some different things, but it’s so hyper-edited. I’m hearing what they’re using for my sound bite, and I’m thinking like, wow, that wasn’t even in that context. It’s almost like I came across harsh at Hogan the way they edited me.
There was a three or four minute part in there where I was discussing to them that night he joined us. I’m in the ring and my mind I’m saying, ‘Fu**, that’s Hulk Hogan, like, Hogan’s with us’, because I equate it as a mark, like Hogan was nothing but the main event.
That’s what Hogan was. He was just a main event guy. If you were in something with Hogan, especially in that fu**ing red and yellow. But, if you would have heard me say that during that show, I think coming from me, a part of the faction, is more impactful than somebody else or a voice over person stating how over Hulk is or was or wasn’t.”
Contrary to how his comments were presented on this show, and contrary to some other rumors that have been circulating for a few months, Kevin Nash and Hulk Hogan are still very good friends.
