WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash says he’s happy to give advice to people at indie events, but there are some things he dislikes about indie wrestling.
During the latest edition of his “Kliq This” podcast, Nash commented on being asked to watch indie talent’s matches at shows, the #1 mistake people make on the indie scene, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On being asked to watch indie talent’s matches at shows: “Yeah, I mean if I’m at a show or something, I’ll help people. And you know, I will watch a match. But I usually quiz them before, I’ll say, ‘Well, what story are you guys telling?’ And if they go, ‘Well, what do you mean?’ Like, ‘What story are you gonna go out there and tell so I can tell you whether or not–,’ you know? ‘Oh, we’re just gonna do a bunch of f**king moves.’ ‘No, I’m not gonna watch your s**t.’”
On the #1 mistake people make on the indie scene: “[They] go too fast… It’s just not my style. I mean I’m sure people are all, ‘Oh because you can’t f**king do it, you can’t f**king frog splash.’ Yeah, whatever. But it’s just not my style. I don’t like anything that is choreographed. When you’re up on the corner and somebody’s given a guy another f**king — and you’re f**king balancing each other and f**king using each other’s hand here. Like f**k that, at what point don’t you like poke [the guy].
“It’s so easy. Like, you have to be smart. If you’re gonna like do an all-out hockey fight unless you guys are gonna go, then why would you do that? Because two grown men throwing punches at each other somebody’s going to swell up. And if you don’t get that five minutes in — you start with a hockey f**king fight, and both those guys’ eyes aren’t f**king swelling, then you know it’s a work, right? So why would you start there? I don’t know, to me, it’s just always been common sense.”
