Kevin Nash Speaks On Retirement, Career Success, More

Matt Boone


The following is an excerpt from an interview with Kevin Nash, conducted by Booboo Stewart for the official TNA website:

Boo: So you have been wrestling for over 20 years, how much longer do you see yourself in the ring?

Kevin: I am one injury away from another rehab stint, but then I am sure I would come back again haha. Right now, I feel better than I have in about 5 or 6 years. I’ve lost a ton of weight and feel great. I don’t see myself stopping right now. I would stop when it stops being fun. I still get nervous when I haven’t wrestled in a while, but once I get going, I’m back into it. The other week on iMPACT!, I wrestled Jeff Jarrett in my first TV match in months and the next day, I felt great and really cared about what I do out there.

Boo: You are one of the best known wrestlers of all time–could you ever have imagined being this successful?

Kevin: To be honest, no. I remember when I was standing in Madison Square Garden and handed the Heavyweight Championship after defeating Bob Backlund and all I could think is you have got to be kidding me. I was only given about a months notice when Vince called me during an overseas tour and told me to come to his house in Connecticut to talk. He sat me down and told me that they wanted to run with me. I had only been working there for a little over a year at that point. Truth be told, I thought I would be playing pro ball.
