Kevin Nash recently spoke on a wide variety of topics at his Kliq This podcasting.
During the conversation, Nash talked about Scott Hall telling a story about Vince McMahon during a You Shoot in a meeting about his first gay experience. Then they played an excerpt from Hall’s interview.
Hall said, “I remember Vince calling me, and you have to remember that this is a very different era. We’re not allowed to fight on the floor, you don’t hit guys with chairs, nothing, and they’re really big on family entertainment. So Vince calls me in and they did the Goldust thing and he says, ‘We’re going to do this Goldust thing. We’re going to do this to you,” and he says, “He’s going to fall in love with you.” I remember thinking, what? I just went through a long corner with Shawn and I worked with Kev who was like a big killer. He says, “Let me tell you about my first gay experience,” and I remember sitting, Kevin and I both sitting in Vince’s office on TV. I looked at Kevin and my first thought was, unlike your most recent, like you and Warrior on the bearskin? He was talking about living in North Carolina and hitchhiking one time, and I don’t know anything about Vince’s past, but I guess hitchhiking from where, the pool to the country club? Like? He said a man picked him up and as if he was rubbing his leg with his hand. I think okay, now you’ve told me. What does this have to do with wrestling? But I remember being really resistant to it. That was not the way we did business.”
Nash went on to explain why Hall didn’t like the storyline with Goldust:
“Yes. Scott and I repeated that conversation many times. I was so blessed to spend 33 years of my life with that human being. Later on the corner moves forward a bit and Scott is there with his son, Cody. Him and Cody look at it and Goldust unzips his outfit, pulls it over, and there is a heart and over it Razor says and Scott has to explain why this freak has a heart… Cody is like 10 or 11, enough to give you scars. ‘
