Kevin Nash Says AEW Feels Dated, Compares It To WCW Thunder
AEW = WCW Thunder for Kevin Nash
Speaking on his Kliq This podcast, Kevin Nash stated that he thinks All Elite Wrestling feels dated, comparing the product to World Championship Wrestling's B-show, Thunder. He did praise the likes of Chris Jericho, CM Punk, Wardlow, and Orange Cassidy, however.
"It just seems dated. It has a very WCW Thunder feel when I watch it. I watched Jericho on that and I've always thought Chris was a great performer. I thought when they brought Punk in, I really liked the fact that every guy Phil worked with, Phil gave 80% of the match to. Phil made everybody before he beat them. He was very professional. I like his style. They both work an older school style," Nash said.
"But I'll tell you right now, Orange Cassidy, that's my boy. I know that Corny and other guys like that s**t on it. Wardlow is a good looking guy. Good body. He had a match with Orange Cassidy to start off the show. I'm like, 'Wow, this guy is going to eat Orange Cassidy alive.' Low and behold, that big dude gets it. He let him do the kicks to the shin. They ended up having a really good, competitive match. He beat him, and he should have. I know the Kevin Nash/Cornette in me wants to fu**ing slit my wrists, but the Shawn Michaels nowadays realises that it's not your dad's fu**ing wrestling anymore."
While Kevin Nash did give some praise to AEW, his fellow WWE Hall of Famer Road Dogg has been critical of Tony Khan's promotion in recent weeks and he claimed the company gave Wardlow "the jabroni title" following Mr. Mayhem's win over Scorpio Sky to capture the TNT Championship.
