He’s done. Wrestlers are a bit unique when it comes to retirement. While mainstream athletes have to come back for a full season at a time, a wrestler is able to do one more match almost whenever they want. It makes for some different circumstances and the idea of “one more match” is a regular occurrence. Now though, one legend is saying there will be no more match, no matter what.
During a recent edition of his Kliq This podcast, WWE Hall Of Famer Kevin Nash, 63 years old, said that there was no way he would come back for one more match. Nash said that he wouldn’t do it, not even for “f****** Saudi money”. Nash cited the amount of bumps that it would require on his body not being worth it. In addition, Nash said that the money would not be worth it as it would sit in the bank with his other money that he doesn’t spend. His most recent match took place in 2018.
Opinion: I can get the idea of someone wanting to come back to the ring for one more match, but it is also nice to see someone understanding their limitations and not wanting to risk their health. Nash knows what he can and can’t do anymore and while there would be a market for having him back in the ring, there is nothing requiring him to get back in the ring and risk his health.
What do you think of Nash’s career? What was his best match? Let us know in the comments below.
