Kevin Nash Explains Why He Thinks AEW Is Dated


Kevin Nash has been part of the wrestling industry for decades. His most famous run occurred during his time in the nWo. Despite not keeping up with the product, Nash did have some opinions about Tony Khan’s AEW.

On an episode of the “Kliq This” podcast, Nash spoke about how he felt AEW was a dated promotion. While Nash did praise some of the wrestlers in the company, including Orange Cassidy and Chris Jericho, he ultimately feels AEW is an interior product to WWE.


“It just seems…dated?  It has a very ‘WCW Thunder’ feel when I watch it. 

It’s almost like a no-borders, ‘Doctors Without Borders’ type of situation over there, and it’s hard for me to figure out who the belts go to. But I don’t watch wrestling that often, and if I’m going to watch a product, just visually … the crystal-clear production, and costuming, and everything else that the WWE gives me, I feel like it’s Cirque du Soleil instead of f*cking, you know, Ringling Brothers.”

There has been speculation on whether WWE could form a working relationship with AEW following the retirement of Vince McMahon. However, Tony Khan has suggested that while new people are in charge of WWE, the possibility of a working relationship or crossover show seems slim.
