In the latest edition of his Kliq This podcast WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash talked about a number of different pro wrestling moves, including his thoughts on the German Suplex, the razor-sharp chop, and the pile driver, three “dangerous” moves he doesn’t see necessary to tell a good story within the square. circle. Highlights are below.

Says the German Suplex is a dangerous maneuver:

“No one was injured until the German. No one ever broke their neck when I first broke in. But then suddenly that German Suplex comes in.”

His dislike of the Knife Edge heel:

“Jericho and Danielson had that game in AEW where I lost count. I just don’t get it. I’ve lost count. Why is it ‘I’ll give you one. You sell it. You give me one. I’m selling it?’ Why is it ‘I’ll give you one. You sell it. You give me one. I’m selling it?’ I always liked it when Ricky The Dragon Steamboat sent them away [the rope] and get on one knee and act like a Steven Seagal-esque heel.

How Flair would use the chop and then trade a punch:

“Our management just banned that right away [the knife edge chop.] When you chop someone [for real] that’s bottom right with a gun. The list reads ‘Firearm, knife chop. Ric would chop me, but Ric would always follow it with a punch. Chop. punch. So the chop could give him a chance to fire his f-punch. But they don’t [anymore.] There is psychology as to why it would or would not work.”

Believes that pile drivers should remain prohibited:

“Pile drivers are another. I mean Steve was almost paralyzed? [Austin.] I’ve never given one. I don’t take backdrops and I don’t give backdrops. There are certain things you have to do to get a pro wrestling match. As if walking the ropes is one of them.”
