On the latest episode of his weekly ‘Kliq This’ podcast, WWF Legend Kevin Nash revealed that his royalties were cut in half by WWE, after UFC’s parent company Endeavor agreed to buy the #1 pro-wrestling promotion on the planet.
Here’s what the man formerly known as ‘Big Daddy Cool’ Diesel had to say:
“It (July 1st payment) should be 150 percent of what I normally get. But if it’s not, then I guess … Who’s the guy that bought this company?
What’s the guy’s name that bought WWE? Ari, right? So, I guess I’ll be putting a piece of paper in Ari’s hand.”
Ari Emanuel is the CEO of Endeavor. He appeared in an interview along with Vince McMahon, after the sale of WWE was announced.
Kevin Nash was one of the biggest Superstars of the 90s and he wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation / WWE (1993-1996, 2002-2003, 2011), Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1996-2001) and Dixie Carter’s Total Nonstop Action! (2004-2011).
He was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2015 and again in 2021 as part of the nWo, making him one of the few 2-time WWE Hall of Famers.
