The Wrestling-Online Newsletter is reporting that, during an interview with Grantland.com, former WWE and WCW Champion Kevin Nash ripped into two deceased wrestlers as Nash said of Chris Benoit and Hall of Famer Eddie Guerrero, “when Benoit and Guerrero hugged [at the end of WrestleMania XX when Benoit was the World Heavyweight Champion and Eddie was the WWE Champion], that was the end of the business.” That was just the beginning of the shocking and uncomfortable remarks as Nash also said (cleaned up for all audiences), “you put two [expletive] guys that were great workers that were the same height as the [expletive] referees and, I’m sorry, man. Are you going to watch a porno movie with a guy with a three-inch [expletive]? Even if you’re not gay, you will not watch a porno movie with a guy with a three-inch [expletive]. That’s not the standard in porno films. So you put a five-foot-seven guy as your World Champion.”
Current WWE Superstar and a good friend of both Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero, Chris Jericho, responded to Nash’s comments on Twitter, saying, “Funny how @realkevinnash says wrestling ‘died’ when Benoit and Guerrero were champs- Yet the worst year for WWE biz was in 95 when he was on top.” Jericho also tweeted, “Hope @realkevinnash doesn’t tear his quad tweeting! #typicalbigman #nwothirdwheel”.
