The shock arrival of Scott Hall on WCW Nitro will live forever as one of the most memorable moments in the history of this great sport. When Hall was joined by Kevin Nash just two weeks later, the course of wrestling history was changed forever.
After ‘The Outsiders,’ declared their intention to takeover WCW, and said that they would have a mystery partner for their meeting with Sting, Lex Luger and Randy Savage. At Bash At The Beach 1996, Hulk Hogan was unveiled as the ‘mystery third man’ and the nWo was born.
However, while Kevin Nash’s career had just vaulted into the stratosphere. His departure from WWE, then WWF, was far from smooth.
Hall and Nash were involved in the infamous “curtain call” at Maddison Square Garden with Shawn Michaels and Triple H as they said goodbye, which upset many within WWE. But Kevin Nash has also revealed that his departure, alongside Hall, upset long-time friend Shawn Michaels.
Speaking on WWE Untold: Two Dudes With Attitudes, Nash said Michaels was “p***ed” over his exit, admitting that he had every right to be.
“From Shawn’s standpoint, he’s looking at me and Scott [Hall] going ‘You motherf***ers. You guys let me put you over, around the world. Have five-star matches. You guys are both cashing in on it, and you’re taking two of my five best guys, for me not to work with. I could have a nine month run with each of you two.’ He was p***ed. He had every reason to be.”
Posting on social media after the documentary’s premiere, Nash said that he “teared up” watching the retrospective.
