Some more news on Kevin Nash walking out on the TNA iMPACT! tapings last Tuesday (July 29) in Orlando. Nash has a creative control deal in his contract where he has to approve of whatever TNA books for him. He was booked for the July 29 taping (to air tonight on Spike TV) for a weapons gauntlet match and an interview. After reading the script, he got mad that it was a "weapons" gauntlet as he doesn't like being in matches like that and complained that the company was showcasing too many weapons-style matches on free TV.
Nash was also upset when he was booked to be eliminated third in the match during a commercial break no less along with BG James and Lance Rock. He felt none of it made sense, said he wasn't doing it and went home. The saying has gone that if 90% of the wrestlers on the TNA roster had done this then they would be gone, but since Nash is who he is he got away with it. Even people who are not big fans of Nash backstage felt he was in the right on this decision and were not criticizing him for it.
It should also be noted that Nash was already said to be upset with TNA before this incident took place. Nash had scheduled a vacation to last until July 15 as he wasn't booked on the Victory Road PPV in Houston. He then got a call that he had to be on the PPV, so he cut his vacation two days short, flew to Houston and when he got there he was told he was only needed for one backstage segment with Samoa Joe.
Lets also keep in mind though that Big Kev has been very open to putting over the younger guys and really has been all about helping TNA and not causing any issues. For the most part, things are usually good and appear to be back to normal now.
