When it comes to WWE Superstar LA Knight, Kevin Nash is shifting his position.
The WWE Hall of Famer talked about his recent remarks on LA Knight and his current gear sales for the organisation on the most recent episode of Kliq This: The Kevin Nash Podcast. Nash discussed the effects of his actions in the ring and stated that, in his peak, he could have had a competitive match with him.
“I didn’t know much about the guy,” Kevin Nash admitted. “And so I watched some clips. And I’ll say he’s a good hand. The one thing, and this is probably the most important thing is he has some high-impact finishing moves or moves. And he really does an excellent job of always, not occasionally, not 90% of the time, but always making sure that he tucks that person’s head and lays them flat. He looks like he’s strong.
“I always look at it like, okay, could I have a match to this guy in my prime? Hell yeah, he would have laid me flat; I could have had a good match with him. So I wasn’t dogging him. My whole thing was, I don’t think people understood that was the first time that my eyes and what I thought — I never saw him as [Eli Drake], I didn’t see him in NXT.”

Kevin Nash agreed that if LA Knight is the champion of the people, they should capitalise on it. Since there is too much wrestling on television each week and Nash doesn’t watch SmackDown, he also apologised for not knowing who he was.
“If LA Knight, if he’s the chosen one if he’s the people’s champion. Then he’s the people’s champion. It doesn’t f**king matter to me,” Kevin Nash said. “If his segments do a number and that f**king helps the WWE, which I’m a stockholder. And it makes my buddy fucking Paul’s [Triple H] life easier then f**k? Get over, dude.
“It was just one of those things where I don’t want SmackDown. So dude, I didn’t know who the f**k you were, and I apologize. But some of us in professional wrestling actually watch sports, watch film, occasionally read a book. I do other things besides watch wrestling. There’s 394 hours of wrestling on television a week. I just can’t do it.”
