Source: GrantlandAs noted earlier, ESPN subsidiary site Grantland.com has an extensive interview with Kevin Nash, who discussed his upbringing, breaking into wrestling and moving into Hollywood. During the interview, Nash stated that Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit should have never been main eventers.
"When Benoit and Guerrero hugged [at WrestleMania XX], that was the end of the business," said Nash. "Has business been the same since that WrestleMania? Has it come close to the Austin era? Has it come close to the nWo or the Hogan era? You put two f--king guys that were great workers that were the same height as the f--king referees, and I'm sorry, man. Are you going to watch a porno movie with a guy with a three-inch dick? Even if you're not gay, you will not watch a porno movie with a guy with a three-inch dick. That's not the standard in porno films. So you put a 5-foot-7 guy as your world champion."
Nash was also critical of CM Punk and Daniel Bryan, noting that they "are not bigger than life."
"I bet they could both walk through airports and not be noticed unless they have a gimmick shirt on and the belt," he said.
Nash also discussed cussing out Tom Cruise's makeup artist on the set of Rock of Ages, how the Kliq changed WWE payouts, how his WWF heel turn "blueprinted" the "Stone Cold" Steve Austin character and much more. It's a great read, you can check out the full article by clicking here.
