2022 Hasn’t Been Easy For Kevin Nash

The tragic news comes during what has already been an emotional year for two-time WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash, who lost his best friend and tag team partner Scott Hall on March 14th. Discussing his memories of ‘The Bad Guy’ on an episode of Kliq This, ‘Big Daddy Cool’ recalled the final moments The Kliq had with their friend:

“So [DDP] was keeping me in the loop and, but then we’re going to, when it came time to get Scott out of the hospital, they were going to bring him to Dallas’ and he was going to stay [at] Dallas’ and kind of recover there. And so I talked to Dallas, I was in, Bobby Fulton had some show that I was at there and I was signing with Kurt Angle, and that was on Saturday.

I got a call Sunday morning that God was early, and it was Paul [Levesque]. Paul said that Scott had three heart attacks, and it didn’t look good. And so I tried to get a flight to Atlanta, couldn’t. So went back to Daytona Beach and then couldn’t get a flight out of Daytona Beach and then they were just at that point they said that you know, they were going to pull the plug.

The doctor said that it would be maybe 10 minutes that Scott would be alive. So before they pulled the plug we all, the Kliq guys got on speakerphone and we all talked, cried is basically all we did.”
