On a recent edition of his “Kliq This” podcast, Kevin Nash discussed the circumstances that led to his title reigns in the early 1990s.
Vince McMahon pushed Nash front and center for WWE and made him the longest-reigning champion of the decade.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On being pushed as a champion by WWE: “My thing is this, I went from f**king Oz to having the IC, Tag, and World Title in three years. Even though I was the lowest-drawing champion of all time or whatever people want to say about me, I still am the longest-reigning champion in the 1990s which [includes] the Attitude Era. I just happened to be the president during the depression. I wouldn’t change it. The reason I got everything I did … after the drug trials … I read someone say ‘You’re a good-looking giant dude — that’s why you got to where you got.’ No f**king shit! I was the biggest dude … I was lean and clean. That’s why I got pushed.”
On his reaction to being tapped as the front man for WWE: “I was just a guy Vince chose. What was I supposed to say? No?”
