Rolling Stone and WWE.com are reporting that Kevin Nash has been announced as the final member of the Class of 2015. It appears according to WWE.com that Nash will indeed go in as Kevin Nash, instead of the reporting “Diesel” moniker.
I for one am completely behind that idea as it showcases the highs and lows, both of which Nash is known for. This is a surprising moment, last years’ induction of Scott Hall as Razor Ramon, a character induction, seemed to signify that Nash would obviously go in as Diesel. Hooray for WWE’s choice here. http://www.wwe.com/superstars/kevinnash
On top of going in, Nash is supposed to headline the night, certain to end it on a happier moment than Lanny Poffo not filling his brother’s shoes.
Nash is one of the most contentious and polarizing figures in wrestling history. He is both one of the best influences on the business, helping set the basis for modern wrestling monetarily but also ruining the “heel” character by overemphasizing being “cool”.
We will go over Kevin Nash fully in a full post to come out later in the week. In the meantime, to showcase how all over the place Nash is, here is a great moment for Nash and a terrible moment back to back!
