WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash caused concern with recent comments on his podcast, and it has now emerged that police were called to check on the star.
Following a tragic 2022 for Kevin Nash in which his long-time friend Scott Hall passed away in March before Nash’s 26-year-old son Tristen died in October, the star caused some alarm with recent comments.
Nash sparked concern following his latest Kliq This podcast where he quipped ” time flies when you’ve got a gun in your mouth.” Nash’s co-host Sean Oliver told the star he couldn’t make comments like that since he owned guns to which Nash replied that he “could do anything” he liked “as long as I leave a note.”
Nash’s friend David Herro later gave an update on social media, saying that he spoke to the former WWE Champion and that things seem to be more settled:
“I just spoke with Kevin Nash. I can assure you that he has ZERO intentions to harm himself… especially as he hung up on me, walking into the gym. Arm Day.”
TMZ Sports has now reported that law enforcement from the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office in Florida made contact with Kevin Nash following his comments. It is reported that Nash explained to deputies that he had no intention of acting on what he said and was believed to be doing ok when they spoke to him in person.
Nash also tweeted this to let everybody know he was doing okay.
Everyone take a breath. Let's not take my biggest coping mechanism SARCASM and blow it out of proportion. I appreciate the concern and the fact that others find it a perfect time for insults. Continue to get you updates on @TMZ and wrestling sites. I've got legs to train today
