WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash had some interesting comments for CM Punk and others in the AEW locker room this week.
On a recent episode of his podcast “Kliq This,” Nash addressed Punk’s recent comments from the AEW All Out media scrum, where he said he was “pain, old, and damn tired” when he was 43. Nash found humor in how Punk took pictures at Nash during their WWE feud in 2011, when Nash was in his early 50s.
“At 42, Phil is tired,” Nash told his co-host Sean Oliver. “You know, Phil is tired, he got beat up. I was in the ring at age 55 and he cut the promo about me, ‘Click, click, I can hear your knees’ and ‘LOL, I thought you were dead.’ Yeah, that bastard cuts that promo off of me and he’s sitting there at 42, damn it…”
Nash sued, accusing Punk of using feminine hygiene products.
“In retrospect, when I really thought about it, I’m like, oh no, he didn’t lose his shit…that’s a goddamn damn shock,” Nash joked. “He didn’t take his tampon out, he has toxic shock syndrome. I’ve been thinking about that, I said, motherfucker! So I googled him, I said… forty-two [years old]dude hasn’t wrestled in 10 years. He’s like a damn… it’s like a ’75 El Dorado with 102 miles on the odometer. Motherfucker, don’t tell me you’re tired, don’t tell me you’re 75. Shut your mouth.’
Nash then had some words for AEW’s wrestlers, mainly those involved in the backstage fight at All Out.
“All of you at AEW, you stupid bastards,” he said. “You bunch of stupid bastards. You are 1099s. You know what that means? You were painting someone’s damn house. You got into a fight, and they told you you’re all suspended. Wasn’t it after the damn deal? Can’t figure it out? I have not heard if they have been suspended without payment.”
Oliver cited unconfirmed reports that AEW Executive Vice Presidents Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks had been suspended without pay.
“So they’re the fucking cop who shoots the guy in the back 23 times and then sits at his desk. That is an effective way of managing. What nonsense,” Nash replied.
Nash also noted how odd it was that Christopher Daniels, head of talent relations, and Pat Buck, vice president of talent development, were briefly suspended for trying to break up the fight. He joked, “I actually heard they came in with nunchucks.”
Nash commented more on Punk this week, saying he sees a lot of himself in the two-time AEW world champion. He also compared the “Hangman” Adam Page promo from earlier this year to the infamous “Sunny Days” line that fueled the heat between WWE Hall of Famers Shawn Michaels and Bret Hart in 1997.
“I saw Phil come back, I watched everything he did,” Nash said. “He made sure to make everyone before he beat them. OK, he was a pro…his run got cut short, you know, essentially political. He just had too much fucking heat. Deserved. … I see a lot of myself in him I’m not going to speak for him but he’s a bit of an asshole he had his run he’s got the number of t-shirts they sold he can throw that in someone’s face if he has to he did a good job , then he got hurt and came back I don’t know the details… I know the hangman conversation upset him I guess what happens when you do that work-shoot shit ’cause it’s not scripted, you do get a ‘Sunny Days’ that can ruin someone’s life at home, and now you’ve crossed the line.”
Punk’s AEW future is still up in the air as the third party investigation into the All Out incident is still ongoing. You can click here for a new report on a possible contract buyout for Punk.
