In case you didn’t know…

Kevin Nash tore his ACL back in 1981, with the injury effectively ending his basketball career.

While Nash served in the army, he later ended up working odd jobs after the unfortunate injury took away his basketball endeavors. He then tried his hand at professional wrestling and achieved tremendous success not only in the WWE but in WCW as well.

The heart of the matter

Kevin Nash has suffered for over three decades from leg injury issues that were propagated by his first ACL tear that transpired back in the 1980s.

Nash finally underwent knee replacement surgery on his right leg and stated that after more than 33 years of suffering, he’s finally gotten the comprehensive knee-surgery out the way.

Furthermore, Nash jested that the walking video wasn’t of high quality. He, however, urged fans to view the photograph of his sliced up knee in ‘Walking Dead’ quality; referencing the popular television show.

What’s next?

Kevin Nash is set to appear at the 25th anniversary show of RAW on January 22nd.

While Nash remains semi-retired from the sport of professional wrestling, he has reiterated that he intends on getting back into the gym and resume training at the earliest.

Author’s take

Kevin Nash is probably one of the toughest human beings walking the face of God’s green earth. Not many people can see their lifelong dream go down the drain like he did with his basketball career and still persevere.

Nash went on to rule the professional wrestling world ‘after’, I repeat, after his career-ending knee injury. Kudos to the man for making a career with a bad right leg, and here’s hoping ‘Diesel’ gets back in the gym.
