Kevin Nash Ponders On What If He Hadn't Left WWF, Possibly Ending Undertaker's WrestleMania Streak

Although Kevin Nash’s career is already cemented in the WWE Hall of Fame, Nash does play a little game of “What if?” with Corey Graves.

Appearing on the “After The Bell” podcast, Nash was asked if he had never left WWF in the 1990s to join up with Scott Hall to WCW, later creating the New World Order with Hall and Hulk Hogan and changing the landscape of pro wrestling in the 1990s in the WWF vs. WCW ratings war. Nash said if he had stayed with the WWF, he said would not have dropped the WWF Championship to Bret Hart in 1995, who then dropped the title to Shawn Michaels in 1996.

That is, unless he would have gotten a win over The Undertaker at WrestleMania, ending Undertaker’s famous win streak much sooner than it did in 2014 when he lost to Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 30.

"Well, if I would have stayed, I wouldn't have dropped the belt to Bret to give to Shawn unless I was guaranteed a win at [WrestleMania] against Undertaker. I wouldn't have done it. No, I would've had too many losses in a row. I would have needed a big win right there, so then there goes 'The Streak'. I'm just saying, [it's a] butterfly effect. Mark wasn't a mark. He would have done it. For me to do business, that could have been a possibility,” Nash said.

Nash was quick to say that scenario would not have been guaranteed to happen had he stayed, but would have needed something big in exchange for staying in WWF and losing the WWF Championship.

“I'm not saying it would have happened. I'm not saying Vince would have booked it that I would have been over. I definitely wouldn't have coughed it up without something. I was leaving, so, I mean, it was like, ‘Alright.’ There were a lot of things that could have changed," Nash said.
