Yesterday, it was revealed that 26-year-old Kevin Nash, a wrestling legend, had passed unexpectedly.
The reason for the death is unknown; the couple had been collaborating on Nash’s podcast.
The passing occurs on the same day as Scot “Razor Ramon” Hall, who passed away earlier this year, who was Nash’s old tag team partner and closest friend.
Nash won five world championships throughout his stellar career in wrestling, but he attributes his decision to switch from WWE to WCW in 1996 to Tristian because of the simpler schedule it offered his family.
He returned to WWE multiple times in the 2000s, and his final appearance in a competitive match was in 2015 when he supported Sting during their match at WrestleMania 31 against Triple H.
The 63-year-old received two inductions into the WWE Hall of Fame: once in 2015 and once in 2021 as part of the NWO’s induction.
He is also recognized for being a member of one of the largest backstage “cliques” in wrestling, along with Shawn Michaels, Sean “X-Pac” Waltman, Hall, and the current director of creative for WWE, Triple H.
