Liking Kevin Nash, sorry it's neither big nor funny


The Icon

Recommended Posts

Yeah, yeah, yeah we all know the joke about MSG. It seems to be the in thing to pretend Kevin Nash is some sort of god, or genius or even an athlete. Take it from me none of the above is true.

 

Ok so he is funny in TNA, to a point anyway, but really who cares?

 

Kevin Nash is the most boring man on the planet, nay the universe

 

It is a puzzle I have long tried to decipher, why does Nash get chance after chance when he is a walking colossal bore. Will we never be rid of the wolrd's least intresting wrestler. (WCW first run Unfunny and can't act at all can't wrestle. WWF run Unfunny and can't act at all and can just about wrestle. WCW second run as WWF. WWE run the same. TNA run Funny all of a sudden and still can't act. What little wrestling ability there was long gone.) Um sorry if this sounds like a character assassination, but that is the idea. Sure other wrestlers have outstayed their welcome or keep popping up for one more pay day. (Hello Mr Hogan, Mr Foley.) Most of them though can still put on a good or at least fair show. Nash has never put on a good show, at least not where it counts most. Fan support and numbers.

 

 

 

WWE (F), WCW and TNA have all tried to turn him into a dollar sign and all have failed, Nash just can't draw when it counts. Let's turn the clock back for a minute and look at his WWF World title run in 1994. He held the title for a long time and faced some good opponents. (Bret, HBK and um Mabel well ok not all good.) Did he draw a dime? No and while some of the matches looked good it was mostly his opponent who made him look good. As they say it takes two to tango and logic says Nash must have done some of the work but even the man himself has admitted to his shortcomings in these matches. For example on the HBK from the vault DVD. He had and has basic if any ring skills and moved like a tortise.

 

Now I said in a thread I started about JBL today I love basic brawlers, but even I draw the line somewhere.

 

 

He also couldn't emote to save his life, one of the few areas he has improved a bit at least he can cut a average promo now.

 

Nash is now about 48 years old and if anything is even less mobile than ever, injuries ensure that. It's an in joke that every Nash match may have him suffer an injury for no apparent reason. Or it was in his WWE run anyway. Joke it may be but he has suffered injuries for no reason in particular before. Look at his 'comeback' in 2003 he had a seriously dull run as the Number One contender to HHH (Who was himself having a bad year) and suffered injuries seemingly at random. (Six Knee injuries a Quad tear and a biceps rapture.)

 

This makes me ponder just what in the hell he was even doing in a ring in 2003, or now. He should retire for his body alone. Lest we forget though in wrestling, more in WWE than TNA but still both, if you can cut a good scripted promo and can at least punch and kick other shortcomings will be ignored. However, and comedy, aside has Nash even had one interview / angle / talking segment other than comedy which was good or even passable? In WWF he was kept far away from the mic and got over because of his 'talent'. (size, power and not a lot else.) This was a good idea. In WCW he mostly stood around looking vaguely intresting and had cool hair. Hall and Hogan did the talking and all the better. This, again, was a good idea. His Solo efforts post NWO in WCW and WWE showed a man who didn't care and did not want to better himself.

 

Getting away from the talking I seriously do not understand ,giving the lack of overall talent, why Nash always gets another chance. Well actually I do Nash bends bookers to his point of view, he manipulates them. He treats peers as somebody to use and he regularly disses anybody who opposes his views. (He also disses the business publicly.) Somehow the bookers fall for this time and again.

 

 

By now you are probably thinking boy I really hate Kevin Nash, or have a chip on my shoulder, or am just ranting about hating him.

 

You're wrong I love him in fact. I was a huge Diesel mark and NWO mark and despite the fact he never lived up to the hype I always enjoyed a Nash match. His role in TNA meanwhile really suits his (lack of) talents and is one of the companies better non home grown assets. So long live Kevin Nash the most boring entertainer you will ever see.

 

It's still neither big nor funny to pretend to like him though.

IT NEVER HAPPEN

 

Grammar Finger twitching....

 

As for Nash, his stuff with the X Division was damn hilarious. He and Alex combined to make for some classy stuff. Not just that one video, but the entire PCS series was amazing as well.

 

And of course, the internet being the internet, he's become an e-icon because of it.

 

Hilarity = Infamy on these nets.

People are easily entertained is the translation. In two years it will be Nash who? The latest bandwagons will be rolling on down the hill. Actually I take that back Nash is the one bandwagon that never goes away.

I think he's hit quite the niche. He's one best wrestling example of e-humor, and I'd be shocked if anything tops him. "I/He/She/We/They did that night" will be a "witty" answer for a long time.

 

I personallly found his stuff hilarious, some even more than the MSG joke. The bit about Madascasgar later on I found even more hilarious, but there is no single line that stood out more than that.
