In a recent statement, WWE legend Kevin Nash emphatically asserted that he has no intentions of making a return to professional wrestling. Nash, whose final singles match in WWE took place in 2011 against Triple H, has quashed rumors and speculations regarding a potential comeback.
Nash’s last solo bout unfolded at the TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs 2011 Premium Live Event, where he faced Triple H in a Sledgehammer Ladder match and suffered defeat. He briefly returned to the squared circle three years later for a cameo appearance in the Royal Rumble match.
Recently, Nash stirred the pot by mentioning that he might consider entering the Royal Rumble to confront CM Punk if the latter ever returned to WWE. However, Nash clarified that his comment was in jest and emphasized his commitment to staying out of active competition.
“Woke up the next day, minimal soreness… you know. I’m sorry, I’m putting some size back on. It’s just like… I promise you man, all I want to do is go to the gym, and I’m not looking to… I’m just not, I mean… I’m not looking to get in the ring,” Nash affirmed.

The veteran wrestler also playfully addressed a recent on-screen exchange with WWE Superstar LA Knight, who had taken a jab at Nash. In response, Nash humorously claimed to have conversed with Triple H about Knight’s contract situation, adding some lighthearted banter to the mix.
“Paul told me, ‘I don’t understand this kid…’ ‘Kid? This guy is my age. Are you more worried about the fact that his fan appeal will recede faster than his hairline?’ Unless you’re just a knob gobbler, there is no way you would pick those sunglasses as something to wear. Paul said, ‘We’re so far apart that the only way I’ll sign this guy is as a nostalgia act.’ ‘Like me, a legends deal?’ ‘Yeah, he’s doing their sht. I can’t give him the same pay as guys going out there doing original sht.'”
Nash’s last in-ring appearance dates back to 2016 when he triumphed over Kennedy Kendrick at the Legends of Wrestling Entertainment Dome Show in Miami, Florida. Given the significant time gap and his recurring affirmations, it appears highly unlikely that Kevin Nash will don his wrestling boots for a return to action.
