While there’s been plenty of talk of who else could have one more match, Kevin Nash has confirmed that even a massive payoff wouldn’t convince him to lace the boots one more time.
Officially announcing his retirement in 2020, Kevin Nash had only wrestled sporadically in the years leading up to that point, with his last match being a victory for the Big Time Wrestling Heavyweight Championship over Flex Armstrong. With fellow WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair recently deciding the time was right to step inside the squared circle for a final match, there has been speculation that a number of retired stars couldn’t look to do the same.
Speaking on his Kliq This podcast, Kevin Nash made it extremely clear that there is absolutely no way he will be looking to have another wrestling match, even if the pay put on the table in front of him was massive.
People don’t — I love when people come up to me and they go, ‘Man, you still look pretty jacked. I think you’ve got one more [match] in you. I don’t. The fucking thought of my fucking rickety-ass body hitting that fucking wood. Like, nah, man, not even for f**king Saudi money. You could come to me with half-a-million bucks, let me take two bumps, fuck you. What am I gonna do with that? Let me put that in the bank with the rest of my fucking money I don’t spend.
Stepping back in the ring would also likely mean working a modern style match, which is something he recently discussed with Shawn Michaels.
