Kevin Nash Believes Roman Reigns Will Be A Big Star In WWE

WWE
WWE Legend Kevin Nash recently spoke with Sports Illustrated about various topics. Here are the highlights.

On The Club using the “too sweet” gesture:

“If you’re over enough to use that, and the people don’t sh– on you, you’re over. I don’t mind it at all. I just didn’t like them bringing in Doc and Anderson, then having that six-man elimination match [against Roman Reigns and The Uso’s]. There is no reason to beat those two guys coming in the door. You’re missing heel talent, and you’re going to beat these two guys? But they corrected it. It’s almost like, ‘No one can get over you except us,’ even though you were over someplace else. They make the reference to AJ like he was a Japan guy–he was a TNA guy. He was in Japan for like a year. And the thing is, he’s tearing the TV up.”

On Roman Reigns:

“I’ve always said there are two kinds of people in this world. There is somebody who gets you down in a fight and is putting the boots to you, and the guy on the floor says, ‘Hey, I’ve had enough,’ and you stop. Or you’re me, and I’ll break my shin open to try to kick you as you climb underneath the car because I’ll tell you when you’ve had enough. You either have that, or you don’t–you’re either a prick or you’re not, and I’m a prick. I think that shows. If you’re not, you’re not. I’m glad he’s not. Every time I talk to him, he seems like a really well-adjusted, very nice gentleman. I think he’s got a great look, I think he’s very athletic, I think things will work out for him. It’s just a bad time for him right now, but he’ll be a big star for that company.”

On the Brand Extension:

“There’s just not a lot of depth. We did the split in ‘02, but they’ve had a rash of injuries. A lot of guys are coming back now, but when you start splitting things up, it just shows the lack of depth there is all the way through.”

    Four moves including the hair flip. I can see why he’s fond of Reigns ?

    • jcice13

      hey that’s one move more than big case and not to be argumentative, I said this to someone else here..name me one other big man in the company other than Cesaro who is more athletic than Reigns? I’m talking pure athleticism, speed, quickness, agility, jumping etc…he’s what 6’4? 265? that’s a big man who can do a lot of things and he’s bad in the ring, he’s decent,

  • Mikey Shango #DunDunDuuunnnnnn

    He tore his quad while saying this I bet

    If it wasn’t for Vince and creative rushing his character instead of letting it build organically then yeah he WOULD be a big star right now…

    • jcice13

      they didn’t rush him they hid him with the shield he was groomed in NXT and was cheered like crazy until they raised his arm at mania then all of a sudden he gets boo’d? I am missing the logic

      • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

        No when they eliminated Daniel Bryan early, had Show and Kane as the “last” two guys who was shittt and then they put the rock out there FOR NO REASON to raise his hand…that’s why he was boo’d…and when Creative/VinnyMac want to make him say shittt like suffering succotash and tater tots that doesn’t help his character either….they booked him wrong…just like Bo Dallas, Neville, and V Villians who were also over in NXT

        • Fat Owens Fat

          no, its just the bitter Daniel Bryan fans that boo him. They just cannot digest the fact that Bryan didn’t win the Rumble and didn’t main event Mania those 2 years. Before you say that is bulls—-, remember why Batista was booed for winning the Rumble and his short stint career in the WWE post that. Its just the Bryan smarks who whine that WWE is predictable but for whatever irony they cannot see the fact that they want X wrestler to win everything which ironically makes it even more predictable.

          • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

            They Boo’d Batista because it would have been the same ol shittt nobody wanted to see…another Batista v Orton again in the main event but at Mania and you say smarks when he was OVER with the crowd so imma say what like 90% of the crowds that did the yes chants and Daniel Bryan chants were smarks and he wasn’t actually over? And depriving the FANS (not smarks) of somebody for two years who was (hell still is now even after his retirement) over with the crowd is “best for business”?

          • Fat Owens Fat

            Doesn’t matter who was OVER with the crowds, people cheer for faces all the time and that does not mean all faces should be champions and all heels must be #1 cotenders. If you gave everything that the crowd asks for then you don’t need script writers and WWE would be even more predictable every week. That’s not how an entertainment business works. Just because I didn’t like Walter White dying does not mean Vince Gilligan would not kill Walter White at the finale.
            “Depriving” is a funny word considering that the guy already had his Mania moment a year before.

            The fans were too dumb to not realize that the guy was one match away from crippling himself onto a wheelchair.

          • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

            Ok this is an opinion ok gotcha ???

          • Fat Owens Fat

            An opinion with fair points that you guys cannot seem to counter for some reason.

        • jcice13

          bo dallas sucks, the vaudevillans will get their push after this brand nonsense on smackdown and neville was pushed fine he just got hurt, I don’t see how you can say they pushed him wrong, he was over before his injury and once he’s back on tv you’ll see that…and if you think rock raising his hand was for no reason you are not grasping the mentality of the every day casual fan which out number us by the 1,000’s

          • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

            What does casual fans have to do with the rock coming out their randomly they had no build to him even remotely being on Reigns side it made no sense…if anything they should have let his daughter and wife come out and maybe Ambrose and the Usos

          • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

            and do u really think that superhero v super villian gimmick with Stardust actually got him over?

          • jcice13

            wow you are something……you take one program and make it the be all to end all, Neville was over with the crowd for his abilities in the ring, just because they put him in a lame program with someone takes nothing away from his talent

          • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

            ?? I never said it took away from their talent I said it didn’t get them over…u just said it…it was lame…so is a lame program that didn’t get over with the crowd is gonna help his value?

      • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

        And if anything they should have booked Reigns as the heel to turn on the shield

        • jcice13

          absolutely not.they turned the right guy, Reigns was no where near ready to be on his own then, but Rollins??? he was in the business for years by that time, was great on the mic and had the in ring skills and psychology to do exactly what he accomplished

          • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

            Reigns already played the cocky heel in NXT so why not make him be under Trips wing and guide him in an evolution esq type of deal and don’t get me wrong Rollins is one of the best heels in years but Rollins is also great as a face too

          • jcice13

            come on now, Rollins with many more years of experience was the guy to turn at that moment, they had the plan for him and the plans for the other 2 as well..I never said they shouldn’t turn Reigns heel but at the time there was only one choice, Reigns will be a heel very soon maybe even upon his return next week.and by your own admission Rollins is one of the best heels in years and got much more mileage out of the turn than Reigns would have had. you know that.

          • http://NUNAYSHON.com #NBNC Hawk HENRY #NewNation ??

            That was just an option on how they could have pushed Reigns as a heel I like that Rollins was the one that went heel and not Ambrose or Reigns but I as u can see the babyface push they gave Reigns didn’t work like they wanted…The fact is that Reigns being heel from NXT to now is what should’ve happen…my opinion is he should’ve never been in The Shield and had Hero in like originally planned and had Reigns as one the most cocky bad a– designer suit wearing Rolex rocking a–holllle heel than the Guy…they booked him wrong…
