The UK Sun has a new article online featuring quotes from Kevin Nash. Below are the highlights:

The Undertaker vs. Triple H at Wrestlemania XXVIII:

"It's going to be hard for them to follow last year, because the match they had was so epic.

"By adding the cell and by adding Shawn Michaels, they've got some more things to use as far as from a psychology and moving parts standpoint.
"It changes the psychology of the match. I'm really looking forward to seeing that what they do.

"I know that Mark's beat up, like we all are. I know Paul's beat up. His job is behind the scenes and in the office. When he does wrestle it's an added thing.

"It's added responsibility and I think that puts a ton of pressure on him, because he is so involved in so many day-to-day decisions that are made within the WWE.

"For something like WrestleMania it's easy for either one of those guys, the calibre of performer that they are, to be able to put one out of their hat.

"Mark hasn't worked since last Mania, so I think he's just a WrestleMania-type guy. Once he's gone it's the end of that era. I think you try to keep him part of it to some degree.
"But if it is 'one and done', he's through after this WrestleMania and he was to get beaten, then I'm sure he'd be inducted into the Hall of Fame and you go from there.

"But I personally don't think it will be the last time we see either one of those guys."

Time in WWE:

"The return at the Royal Rumble was fantastic. It was something I won't forget.

"I'd still like to do something with CM Punk in the future. I think we've got a chapter that's still open. Originally it was going to be me and Punk, but it turned out to be me and Hunter.

"I knew that I wasn't allowed to go off the script in those promos. I think he had a little more leeway than I did.

"I came in as a heel. I didn't ask the people to look at me in any way as a tweener. My job was to come in and be a heel. I think I did my job well.

"I didn't look for any kind of admiration from the fans. My job wasn't to be funny, it was to be a nemesis, and that's what I did.

"I've had my run. At this point if I can do something to assist somebody to bring them up a rung on the ladder and make the perception that they are a bigger star than they are or give them a little bit of a bump to make sure they become a bigger star, that's my job now.

"My job's not to be a world champion. I can't go out there and work 300 days a year, and if you can't work 300 days a year you can't be in that spot.

"I'm a realist. I know my days are numbered in this business, but I think I'll always be a part of it. There's nothing that defines me more than professional wrestling. I still love it."

Would he return to TNA?:

"I'm not saying I wouldn't go back. It's only 50 miles from my house!

"If they had something for me and they needed me, I might go back and do it. Right now I'm starting to get bored!"
