"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... So you put a 5-foot-7 guy as your world champion."
Jim Ross responded to Nash, writing, "@RealKevinNash ... Don't know what you allegedly said but whatever it was got a rise out of people. Strange, that's SO not you. :)"
Chris Jericho also responded to Nash's remarks on his Twitter, writing, "Funny how @realkevinnash says wrestling 'died' when Benoit and Guerrero were champs-Yet the worst year for WWE biz was 95 when he was on top"
Nash swiped back at Jericho, writing, "Once again the puppet master pulls the marks strings .Knew Jericho was a closet mark.First one eliminated on a bulls--t sing show...REALLY!!"
