WWE/NJPW News: Kevin Nash comments on WWE sending a cease and desist order to the Bullet Club
What’s the story?
Former WCW and WWE superstar Kevin Nash recently sat down with his close friend Sean Waltman and discussed a host of topics, including the ongoing rivalry between the Bullet Club and the WWE.
Nash gave his thoughts regarding WWE sending several cease and desist letters to the NJPW faction -- most notably the Young Bucks, for using the “Too Sweet” hand gesture.
In case you didn’t know…
It was confirmed last month that WWE contacted Bullet Club members Matt and Nick Jackson, the Young Bucks, and decided to hit them with a cease and desist letter that would prevent the Bullet Club faction from using the “Too Sweet” hand gesture.
Apparently, the decision was taken by WWE Chairman Vince McMahon who seemed unhappy with the group “invading” Monday Night Raw a few weeks back.
The heart of the matter
WWE legend Kevin Nash was recently a guest on Sean Waltman’s podcast called the “X-Pac 1, 2, 360”. During the interview with Waltman, the former WWF World Heavyweight Champion gave his opinion on the Young Bucks and the Bullet Club not able to use “Too Sweet” gesture anymore.
Nash stated that he has no problems with Matt and Nick doing the gesture and believes that WWE hitting them with cease and desist is way too much.
The former NWO member then added that it was Waltman himself who came up with the “Too Sweet” gesture and believes that if there is anyone who deserves credit for the gesture then it’s X-Pac himself.
“You showed it to “The Kliq”, it’s our inside hand gesture; so if they want to call it “Too Sweet” that’s fine,” Nash said.
As for the Young Bucks and the rest of the Bullet Club, they have developed a new hand gesture called the “One Sweet”. The group is currently on tour with Ring of Honor and continues to use their new hand gesture.
I agree with Kevin Nash here, I think WWE has taken the Bullet Club “invasion” way too seriously and hitting them with a cease and desist over a hand gesture could have been avoided.
Personally, I hope that both parties get to solve their issues and hopefully we get to see the Bullet Club use the “Too Sweet” once again, in the future. But for now, there is absolutely no doubt that the faction is in red-hot form both inside and outside the ring.
