Watch the Chair Shot Reality only on Wrestlezone
We received the following email from a WrestleZone reader who wished to remain anonymous:
"I have a friend who works in the airline industry and he confirmed to me today that Kevin Nash is booked on a Saturday flight from Atlanta to Boston. Could he be a surprise entrant or just visiting friends?"
While we normally wouldn’t post a submission like this due to the lack of evidence involved, we did a little digging and now have further information that supports the possibility of Kevin Nash being a surprise entrant into the Royal Rumble.
First, recent reports have all but confirmed that Nash would be heading back to TNA. The plan was for him to get involved in Kurt Angle’s fight against Immortal (along with Scott Steiner, Sting, and Bobby Lashley – the latter two of which have been rumored to return as well). However, we have heard through multiple TNA employees that Nash is now backing out of his deal with TNA. It hasn’t been said that the reason is due to a potential return to WWE, but we can definitely confirm that Kevin Nash will NOT be returning to TNA anytime soon.
None of this confirms that Kevin Nash will be returning to the WWE at the Royal Rumble or any time in the future necessarily, but it’s been no secret to anyone that knows Nash that he would like to end his wrestling career in the WWE.
With no ties to someone else (TNA), his friend Shawn Michaels being inducted into the Hall of Fame this year, and the aforementioned coincidences adding up, the timing couldn’t be better for Big Sexy to make his return up North.
Kevin Nash was last seen on WWE television on August 24th, 2003. He competed in an Elimination Chamber match for the World Heavyweight Championship against Triple H (defending Champion), Chris Jericho, Goldberg, Randy Orton and Shawn Michaels. Nash was the first to be eliminated and Triple H ended up retaining his title.
We’ll keep you up-to-date with any more on this situation as it develops. Don’t forget to read our recent story that leads many to speculate Booker T could possibly be returning at the Royal Rumble as well this year.
Part 1 of this weeks Chair Shot Reality features an exclusive from Mark Madden talking about Ric Flair being upset with TNA and that Flair was unhappy about a particular wrestler who is with the company! That and much more!
