Kevin Nash recently appeared on Jim Ross’ podcast (transcript via wrestlinginc.com), here are the highlights…

On How He Watches Raw: “What I do is that I DVR Raw every Monday and I usually will get on Twitter the next morning and see what all the hype is, and then I will go through and watch those specifics, because after I watch those specifics I will see what was good with those specifics.”

On The Reigns vs. Cena Promos From 2017: “The morning when Reigns and Cena shot on each other, so to me as a wrestling fan I was seeing if they worked the people, if they didn’t work the people so now I am excited to see whether it was a good work or a shoot, and after watching it I noticed that some stuff were shoots and I enjoyed it,” Nash explained. “Now you salivate and want to continue to watch it, you end up skipping through the commercials and watching the rest of the show. Other times it doesn’t hit me as deep, it just depends on who they are pushing whether they are pushing a big guy like (Braun) Strowman, to see how they are pushing him, and whether they are using him right.”

On Finn Balor: “There are some guys who you wouldn’t have thought in a million years would get a push like Finn Balor, but his entrance alone makes him a star,” Nash said. “He’s just cut right; the lighting, his pose, he just has that. Of course we are old school and going to sit in our recliners where we say, ‘slow down kid.'”

On Advice From Chief Jay Strongbow: “I remember Chief Jay Strongbow when I first started making some money, he told me to go buy yourself a place, you grew up around where I grew up in south side of Detroit, in your wildest dreams, when you were growing up, just go buy yourself a place,” he said. “I went and bought myself a three bedroom, three bathroom Condo and I paid cash for it, then afterwards he told me that I am no longer owned by the business. Everyone who was working there was out buying the expensive $5 million house where they have to pay for it the rest of their lives.”
