Kevin Nash has claimed that recent comments made on his podcast were just sarcastic and blown out of proportion.
Nash sparked concern on a recent episode of his Kliq This podcast where he discussed his wellbeing following the death of his son Tristen in October. Nash stated that “time flies when you’ve got a gun in your mouth” and made numerous other allusions to suicide.
“Every morning when I wake up, the first thing that happens is, I come to the realization that instead of there being three human beings in my home, there’s now two. And the third person isn’t on vacation or staying with friends, or is out late. He is never coming back. And then I sit up in the bed and I have absolutely nothing I have to do, and it’s like, ‘so, why am I getting out of bed?’”
Following the episode a number of fans flooded social media to express their concern for the WWE Hall of Famer. This led to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office in Florida reportedly conducting a welfare check on the star who assured them he had no intention of harming himself.
Kevin Nash Shares Update Following Fan Concern
In a post on social media, the man himself has now reassured fans that he’s fine, and that his comments were blown out of proportion.
“Everyone take a breath. Let’s not take my biggest coping mechanism SARCASM and blow it out of proportion. I appreciate the concern and the fact that others find it a perfect time for insults. Continue to get you updates on @TMZ and wrestling sites. I’ve got legs to train today.”
