Kevin Nash – ‘The Rock Would Never Hit The F***ing Heights He Did If Steve Austin Didn’t Get Injured’



On a recent edition of his “Kliq This” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash discussed the ripple effects of Steve Austin suffering a neck injury at WWE SummerSlam 1997.

Nash said, “If Steve doesn’t get hurt, I don’t think Rock hits the f***in’ heights that he does. Like everything happens for a reason, because, basically … I mean, not to be a d***, but Rock has came out and said that when he sees something that gets over, he takes it. When Steve went down with the neck injury, f***in’ Dwayne took a lot of f***in’ Steve’s s*** and incorporated it into what he did. And lo and behold, Steve comes back.”

The WWE SummerSlam 1997 match saw Owen Hart botch a tombstone piledriver, compacting Austin’s head into the mat, leading to temporary paralysis and subsequent neck issues that plagued “Stone Cold” for the remainder of his career.
