What's the story?
WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash recently took to Twitter and went off on a fan.
In case you didn't know. . .
Sean Waltman, also known as X-Pac, was one of the original Kliq members in the WWE, alongside Shawn Michaels, Triple H, Scott Hall, and Kevin Nash. The notorious foursome was known for looking out for each other and being backstage politicians. Many have claimed that The Kliq had some serious backstage pull with Vince McMahon.
Waltman later went to WCW for a brief stint and became a member of the nWo. On the Raw after WrestleMania 14, Triple H announced that he was taking over DX, after Shawn's departure due to an injury. The Game went on to announce Sean Waltman as the new member of DX, to the utter amazement of the fans.
This brand new version of D-Generation X consisted of Triple H, Chyna, Sean Waltman, and The New Age Outlaws. Earlier this year, DX was announced as the first inductees into the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2019.
The heart of the matter
The fan had responded to a photo of the Kliq, stating: "Four of the greatest ever. And Sean Waltman".
Nash didn't seem to be too thrilled with the fan's comments. He shot back, saying that Waltman was "beyond amazing in the ring".
You obviously don't know s--t about wrestling. @TheRealXPacis beyond amazing in the ring. When new talent came in to the WWE or WCW they worked with Sean. If you couldn't have a match with him you were the s--ts and were gone quickly. He's the only attitude era player in DX & nWo.
Seeing how Kevin Nash and Sean Waltman have been the best of friends over the years, and have been together for years on end as members of Kliq and nWo, Nash's response wasn't surprising in the least. The two Superstars have been looking out for each other for a long time now. Nash proved with this response that he will continue to come to the aid of his best friend, no matter if it's inside the squared circle or on social media.
Although Waltman was never regarded as being a main-event player, he managed to hold his own in both WWE and WCW. Being good friends with the likes of the Kliq and the nWo had its perks, but one can't discount his wrestling prowess. Waltman will take his rightful place into the WWE Hall of Fame this weekend.
