One of the most infamous tales in wrestling history belongs to a man named Kevin Wacholz, but fans might know him better as WWE’s resident convict, Nailz.

Wacholz competed in a couple of matches under the name Kevin Kelly for WWE in 1991 but he burst onto the scene in the company as the convict Nailz in 1992 where he feuded with Cobb County’s finest in The Big Boss Man. However, Nailz’s run in the company only lasted five months and he is best known for his staggering exit.

During a live event in Green Bay, Wisconsin in December 1992, Nailz is alleged to have attacked Vince McMahon in his office following a dispute about money. That led to his immediate termination and several lawsuits being filed between the parties. At one point, Wacholz sued McMahon and WWE for wrongful termination claiming that McMahon had sexually assaulted him. These suits were all later dropped.

Nailz had his last match in 2001 and since then has stayed away from the limelight but now WrestleCon has announced that he will be making an appearance at the event which will take place over SummerSlam weekend in Detroit.

Former WWE star Matt Cardona also revealed that courtesy of a collaboration between High Spots and the Maejor Wrestling Figure Pod, a new action figure of Nailz will also be released this summer.
