In a nostalgic moment that sent shockwaves through the wrestling world back in 2011, Kevin Nash, also known by his iconic moniker Diesel, made a triumphant return to the ring at the 2011 Royal Rumble, marking his first appearance under the persona since 1996.

However, Nash’s comeback wasn’t without its challenges, as he found himself facing off against Sheamus and Drew McIntyre, in a memorable encounter that left a lasting impression on both fans and the WWE Hall of Famer himself.

A Memorable Return

Kevin Nash’s return to the squared circle at Royal Rumble 2011 was met with thunderous applause and chants of “Diesel, Diesel” from the electrified audience.

Yet, amidst the excitement, Nash found himself at the mercy of two relentless adversaries, Sheamus and Drew McIntyre, both of them being multi-time WWE Champions (although McIntyre hadn’t won a World Title at that point), who unleashed a barrage of punishment on the veteran wrestler.

Facing Formidable Foes

During a candid conversation on “Kliq This,” Nash humorously recounted his experience of being pummeled by Sheamus and McIntyre, likening their relentless assault to being chased for a debt owed.

Despite his legendary status, Nash found himself overwhelmed by the ferocity of his opponents, acknowledging that he was simply too old to mount a comeback from such a beating.

Accepting the Beating

In a moment of candid reflection, Nash admitted to resigning himself to the onslaught, recognizing that his elimination from the match was inevitable. Rather than futilely fighting from underneath, Nash chose to endure the punishment, accepting his fate with characteristic humor and humility.

Here’s what the former WWF & WCW World Heavyweight Champion said:

“Those two guys pounded me like I owed them money. And the whole f**king place is chanting ‘Diesel, Diesel.’ And I mean, they’re just relentlessly just f**king chewing me alive.

And I’m thinking, like you know what, man? I’m too old to f**king, like, fight from underneath. I’m just, like I’ll just take the beating. I’m getting eliminated here in a minute.”
