Kevin Nash wants to see WWE programming increase its maturity level.
Kevin Nash has always desired to see the pro wrestling world in a more mature light. While the WWF New Generation was filled with characters that were dentists, sanitation workers, failed rock stars, fitness gurus, and Bob Backlund, Diesel was flipping off The Undertaker and mouthing the word “motherfucker” after losing the WWE Championship to Bret Hart.
These days, WWE is in a transition from the leadership of Vince McMahon to that of Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. Kevin, having a close relationship with Triple H, was asked on a recent episode of his podcast, Kliq This, what he would like to see change about the product. In traditional Kevin Nash fashion, “Big Daddy Cool” said that he wanted to see a more m-rated product and also said he was tired of having Monday Night Raw be 3 hours a week.
“I think one of the problems that the company has right now is that Raw is three hours long. I thought that was the demise of Nitro when it went three hours. Three hours is too long, it’s like asking your fanbase every Monday to watch fucking Titanic or Avatar. It’s just too fucking long. I would love to see a breakaway of Raw and have Raw be a mature, M-rated show and be played on Friday nights on FX. I don’t know where they could get a deal with."
Speaking about the maturity level, Kevin Nash is tired of seeing more aggressive verbiage from 3rd graders than WWE Superstars.
"I’m so tired of guys saying, 'I wanna kick your butt.' [But] you drive by a bus stop with third graders and they’re like, 'Hey, you fucking cock-sucker, I’ll kick you in the fucking dick.' Those are third graders. Like what planet are we living on where it needs [to be PG].”
While the maturity level of the content hasn't seen an immediate shift under the watchful eye of Triple H, there were discussions prior to SummerSlam 2022 about WWE programming going back to a TV-14 rating. At least one WWE broadcaster, Vic Joseph, believes the shift will happen. Learn more here.
