On a recent episode of his Kliq This podcast, Kevin Nash recalled his experience filming an episode of WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures alongside Mick Foley. The series involves WWE personalities traveling across the country with A. J. Francis, searching for collectibles and memorabilia related to professional wrestling.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On his response to inquiries about his old gear and the joke that resulted: “I got a call from the producer, whoever it was, and he’s like, ‘Hey, what do you got left over from your ring gear days?’ I said, ‘Nothing. I got nothing.’ He goes, ‘You got nothing?’ I said, ‘No. I sold the singlets, the pants. I got a pair of boots. I said I got a knee brace.’ Then when I looked around the house, I found those Oz pants, which I have on in this picture. Those are the pants that go to the Oz cloak that I gave Conrad, that Conrad gave to somebody else. So the guy that’s in there, one of the production guys, says, ‘Hey, man. I know the guy that has this.’ I said, ‘Conrad.’ He goes, ‘No.’ He names this name, like Bill somebody. So I tweet Conrad. I said, ‘Wow, man, I gifted you my Oz gimmick and you f**king turn around and [give the cloak away].’ Conrad’s such a good f**king guy. Conrad, you could tell, he was actually like, ‘Oh f**k, I upset Nash.’ So he put, ‘I got in my collecting mode, and I’m embarrassed. I apologize.’ Really from the heart, and I knew it was from the heart. So I wait a whole day, and then finally a day later, I put, ‘Well then,’ in capital letters, ‘F**k you.’”
On finding a location to film that wasn’t Nash’s home: “So they take me out. I won’t let anybody use my house. You’re not filming sh*t in my house. So they said, ‘Well, we’re get an Airbnb.’ So they go out, I couldn’t have walked to the ocean in three ways from this house. I Zillow it, and it’s $1.1 million, is what the price of the house is. It’s in New Smyrna. It’s in f**king Nowheresland. There’s not enough real estate in the back yard to put a pool table, let alone a pool. It is the most overpriced piece of sh*t I’ve ever seen in my life. There’s nothing over there.”
On how Foley and Nash turned the location into comedy fuel: “I got in there, so me and Mick just basically did a whole comedy thing. I walked him out back and I said, ‘Hey, take a look at my [yard].’ The backyard is absolutely… I wouldn’t pay $400,000 for that house. We shot inside, but I don’t know how they’ll be able to use because I just basically tear into the place the whole time. I tell him right away, ‘Yeah, this isn’t my house, it’s an Airbnb.’ There’s no way anybody thinks that this is where I ended up my career at, that I had this bad of a career that I ended up at this builder-grade [house]. The two back bedrooms have carpeting, come on. Carpeting unless it was the Brady Bunch f**king house was a f**king no-no.”
On Nash’s reaction to having Foley play host for the episode: “He’s the host. The first thing out of my mouth is, ‘Do know if I was up for host or not?’ [laughs] He looks at me like, ‘You’re kidding me, right? This is how this is gonna be?’ I go, ‘Yeah, I’m f**king around the whole time. Because what you’re paying, you’re lucky I’m f**king here.’”
