Triple H has taken over as the new head of the creative team following the sensational departure of Vince McMahon. The now former Chairman of the company left everyone speechless last July, announcing his decision to retire on Twitter.
His right-hand man John Laurinaitis – former head of talent relations – was also fired from the Stamford federation due to some inappropriate behavior. Vince's place was taken by his daughter Stephanie and Nick Khan, who proved to have a very different philosophy from that of their illustrious predecessor.
The same goes for The Game, which brought back several stars who had been released during the pandemic. The 14-time world champion has convinced athletes of the caliber of Bray Wyatt, Braun Strowman and Johnny Gargano to return to WWE, not forgetting the very welcome return of JBL to Raw.
Kevin Nash was a game-changer in the wrestling industry. Many wrestling legends joined Nash alongside Scott Hall and Hulk Hogan in the NWO.
Kevin Nash on Triple H
In the latest episode of the 'Kliq This' podcast, WWE legend Kevin Nash revealed that Triple H called him after his son's tragic death: "Paul was one of the first to call me.
He was really kind and thoughtful. He wanted to make sure that he didn't do anything crazy in that very difficult moment. My wife and I helped each other and tried to metabolize that immense pain. Having something to do on Wednesday helps me a lot”.
Nash then returned to the death of his son Tristen (who died on October 20 at the age of 26): “An epileptic seizure caused him to have a heart attack, there was nothing they could do. When I look back on the past, a few moments come to mind when he wasn't well.
My wife and I took care of him in hopes that things would improve. We were aware that he was trying hard. One of the risks of stopping drinking or taking drugs is that you may have a relapse or – if you have been abusing for a long time – it increases the risk of having a seizure or a heart attack”.
WWE legend DDP lavished praise on Kevin Nash, who he feels is one of the best big man workers in pro wrestling history and thinks was the right candidate to end Goldberg's Streak. "The Streak had to be ended. He should've taken the Diamond Cutter [from DDP].
I wasn't a big fan of the prod even though it came from Scott [Hall]. I would rather have seen Kev [Kevin Nash] beat him. I mean, Kev is the guy who could beat him [Goldberg]. I personally think he needed to be beat clean."
