Kevin Nash Comments On AEW All Out Backstage Fight
Kevin Nash has given his take on AEW’s recent backstage brawl
It’s been several weeks since the backstage fight between CM Punk, Ace Steel, and The Elite, stemming from incendiary quotes made by Punk during the post AEW All Out media scrum, but fans and professional wrestling personalities alike are still digesting the incident and giving their opinions.
One such name is that of WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash who worked with CM Punk in WWE in 2011. Taking to the Kliq This podcast, Nash didn’t shy away from giving his opinion on the backstage fight:
“At 42 years old, Phil [CM Punk] is tired. He's tired. He's beat up. I was in the ring at 55 when he was cutting the promo on me, 'click click, I can hear your knees. Lol, I thought you were dead.' That motherf***** is cutting that promo on me and he sits there at 42-years-old, I guess in retrospect, when I thought about it, oh no, he didn't lose his s***, that's toxic f*****g shock. He didn't pull his tampon out. He's f****** got toxic shock syndrome. I thought about it, googled him, forty f****** two. Dude didn't wrestle for 10 f****** years. It's like a 75 El Dorado with 102 miles on it. Motherf*****, don't tell me you're tired. Don't tell me you're 75. Shut the f*** up.
“On top of that, all you guys at AEW, you dumb motherf******. Your 1099s, you were painting somebodies house, you got into a fight, and they told you, 'you're all suspended.' Wasn't it after the deal? You guys can't work that out? I haven't heard if they are being suspended without pay," said Nash.
Nash’s co-host Sean Oliver revealed that Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks have been suspended with pay - although this has not been confirmed by AEW:
"So they are the f****** cop that shoots the guy 23 times in the back and then sits at his desk. That's an effective way to manage. What a bunch of s***,” said Nash.
Nash was somewhat more measured when analysing Punk’s AEW run as a whole:
"I watched Phil come back, I watched everything he did. He made sure that he made everybody before he beat them. He was a pro. He could have gone out there, his run got cut, basically, politically. He had too much heat. Deserved.
“I see a lot of me in him. He's a little bit of a p****. He had his run, he has the number of how many shirts they sold. He can throw that in somebody's face if he had to. He did a good job then he got hurt, came back, I don't know the specifics. I know the Hangman interview upset him. What happens when you do that work-shoot s***, you do get a 'Sunny Days,' that can wreck somebody's life at home,” continued Nash.
