What's the story?

Kevin Nash is a legend who first made his name in WWE as Diesel and then went on to change the industry as a member of the nWo in WCW. He was recently a part of The Ross Report and revealed Vince McMahon's thoughts about the current roster.

The interview was enlightening, to say the very least. We thank Wrestling Inc. for the transcript of the said conversation.

In case you didn't know...

Vince McMahon has often urged younger talent to reach for the 'brass ring'. He's questioned the hunger of younger talent on platforms as public as the Stone Cold Podcast in the past.

Kevin Nash aka. Diesel was a part of a faction called The Kliq that was rather infamous for backstage politics and pulling strings in the backstage area, to suit their own vested interest and ambition. The group also consisted of Shawn Michaels, Scott Hall, X-Pac and Triple H.

The heart of the matter

Kevin Nash recalled catching up with McMahon around two WrestleManias ago, and when he asked the boss about the current roster, this is what he had to say:

And he goes, ‘The thing that’s changed more than anything, [is] back when you broke in here in the fed, it was a shark tank. Like, everybody went after that top prize, and it was a battle. Now, [wrestlers] wait for him to come around with a sword and anoint them.’ It’s just not the same anymore.”

Nash also mentioned that the XFL was coming back only because McMahon doesn't like a black mark anywhere in his dossier at all.

What's next?

Kevin Nash will be a part of RAW's 25th Anniversary Special show, right before the Royal Rumble pay-per-view takes place.

Author's take

It's impossible to speculate about McMahon's remark, without being an active member of the roster. So I'll not comment on this matter.

I've read enough interviews to know, however, that the current locker room is a much friendlier place than it ever was, in the past.
