    Please don't pair The Shield with Kevin Nash. Please let it just be a coincidence.

    I'm sure it is just a coincidence. Nash is probably just the guest they seem to have at every show. I'm not sure why everyone is so down on Kevin Nash. He's a big time name and was as big as anybody back in the day. If it's that stupid rumor that he was one of the big reasons WCW failed, then that's just ridiculous. WCW failed because AOL / Time Warner almost went belly up when all the tech stocks failed, and they had no interest in putting the money into WCW that was needed to compete with the WWF. They really had no interest in having anything to do with pro-wrestling. If they did, why would they have sold WCW to McMahon so cheaply instead of selling it to Bischoff, and his group, and keeping it on their network? The answer is they sold to McMahon cheap just to be done with it. Because they didn't want wrestling on their network even though Nitro was still their highest rated program up to and including the final episode. Nash is a huge name in the business and is a sure fire WWE HOF'er when the time comes. So I think it's a great idea to have him come in and talk to developmental. I still think he could be an asset on Raw also. He was over big time again during his last short run with Hunter, and I thought that he and CM Punk had something good going too. He doesn't need to compete to be a valuable commodity either. I'd much rather see him as GM then Vicki Guerrero. I've been watching the nWo anthology that someone posted on Youtube that has every single nWo moment from the beginning to the end. There's some missing because the WWE are A-holes about their content, but it's freakin great. I forgot just how over those guys were and just how big that thing got. It's too bad that it was mismanaged by creative. I see why they added a few B-level guys to take all the losses, but it just got way too watered down. Because they could've done a lot more with it. Also an ending to the whole thing would have been nice.

      No. It’s not because people say WCW failed because of Nash. No. It’s that Nash things small wrestlers like Rolling and Ambrose are a bag of shit and that wrestlers of their size have ruined the business. Putting him, then, with guys like that? Kind of ridiculous. I’m sure there are PLENTY of other big old names they could hang around with if they needed to.

      Which they don’t. Has to be coincidence since Nash hardly fits in with their gimmick of writing wrongs and being the new up and coming talent getting a spotlight.

      Remember: they film several NXT shows at once, correct? Him being there the same day of tapings doesn’t mean it’s the same show. Could be a show to be aired several weeks later.


    Whats wrong with Nash if he was paired with them? It wouldn't have to be a "wrestling" role. I think he could be the "Paul Heyman" of the group. It could work if done correctly
