– Kevin Nash Talks About TNA Having A Lot Of Talent Back In The Day, WWE Not Allowing The Young Bucks To Use The “Too Sweet” Gesture
During a recent edition of X-Pac 12360 podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash talked about TNA having a lot of talent back in the day, the “Too Sweet” hand gesture & more. Below are the highlights:
On TNA having a lot of talent back in the day:
“There was so much talent there in TNA. There really was a ton of talent, and it reminded me of when we all came to WCW with the incredible amount of talent they had when they had Eddie Guerrero, Ultimo Dragon, Chris Benoit, just that incredible amount of talent with Juventud Guerrera, Rey Mysterio, they just had a lot of incredible talent.
I always thought that Joe was special, and immediately when he got to NXT I thought that he was going to be the perfect opponent to Brock Lesnar. Bobby Roode was also really solid. I’m surprised it took him this long to get a hold of WWE.”
On WWE not allowing The Young Bucks to use the “To Sweet” hand gesture:
“To me it’s just like, you (X-Pac) created that. That is your hand signal. You are the one that came in and told us the story of seeing the hand gesture at a bar, it was a ‘Turkish Wolf’ so if anyone should get credit for that hand gesture it’s you because you showed it to the Kliq and we adapted it as our inside hand gesture, so if they want to call it ‘Too Sweet’ that’s fine, but to me it’s like, really?
I’m sure somebody through the peace sign for the first time are you going to try and get intellectual property on that?”
– Eric Bischoff Calls Bret Hart A Miserable Guy, Says Bret Hated Everybody During His Time In WCW
During a recent appearance on Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, former WCW President Eric Bischoff responded to Bret Hart’s recent negative comments about him. Below is what Bischoff said:
“I didn’t listen to your show with Bret. I’m generally aware of the kind of things that Bret says because he’s been saying them for years, so it’s nothing new there. I’m sure he didn’t break any news. He’s just a miserable guy. He’s the type of guy – and I said it in one of my responses on Twitter; he has a giant hole in his soul, and he’s going to have to fill it with hate for somebody.
When he came to work for me he hated Vince McMahon. He hated everybody in the McMahon family; he hated Shawn Michaels; he didn’t want to work with Hulk Hogan. He hated Ric Flair, he hated Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, he hated everybody, and I had to listen to that. It was a major effort to get him and Flair on the same page; which wasn’t because of Ric, it was because of Bret; he just hated everybody.
If you just watched him or listened to him over the years, he was able to get into the WWE Hall of Fame so he buried the hatchet with Vince McMahon and Shawn Michaels, of course he did, but you know, Bret showed up in WCW, it makes me laugh when he says he didn’t like how he was treated because we paid him a lot of money and treated him extremely well.
Here was a guy that would show up 45 minutes before television started, before a live TV show and he would show up looking like he would sleep in the gutter the last three days; and he had no energy, no real desire to integrate himself and insert himself in the process. He wasn’t at all passionate about anything he did from day one.”
