• Former World Champion Deeply Regrets His Final WWE Match Against Triple H
On the latest episode of his weekly ‘Kliq This’ podcast, former WWF World Heavyweight Champion ‘Big Daddy Cool’ Diesel (Kevin Nash) spoke about his final WWE match, that took place on December 18th 2011 at the ‘WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs 2011’ Pay-Per-View, when he lost to his close, personal friend Triple H in a Sledgehammer Ladder match.
Nash stated that he deeply regrets doing this match, especially because of his history of leg/knee issues, someone like him shouldn’t compete in a ladder match to begin with.
Here’s what the 2015 WWE Hall of Famer had to say:
“What do you mean ‘both don’t normally have ladder matches’? How about f**king never?! How about I’ve never done one in my life.
I’ve got 17 knee operations, and he’s running the show and I get to talk to him for about 8 minutes in the ring before the doors open. That was my last match. Everybody else gets to have a last match, that was mine. F**k me.
Who gives a f**k about a sledgehammer? All I know is you got a f**king 18-foot ladder. Guess what? Nobody wins until somebody goes off the motherf**ker and I wasn’t going over.”
