Kevin Nash says he filmed something for WWE's Most Wanted Treasures', and it turned into him insulting the Airbnb they were using.
The series premiered on A&E Network in 2021, and the premise centers around a team of collectors and WWE stars searching for lost WWE collectibles. Memorabilia from Mick Foley, Booker T, and Andre the Giant, among other legends, were featured in the first season.
Speaking on Kliq This, Nash discussed how he filmed something for 'WWE's Most Wanted Treasures' with Foley, a fellow Hall of Famer. He recalled how he was asked by the show's producer whether he had any gear left from his career, and Nash noted that he sold it. He then detailed how he found out that Conrad Thompson gave the cloak he wore during his days as Oz away to someone else.
"I got a call from the producer, whoever it was, and he’s like, ‘Hey, what do you got left over from your ring gear days?’ I said, ‘Nothing. I got nothing.’ He goes, ‘You got nothing?’ I said, ‘No. I sold the singlets, the pants. I got a pair of boots. I said I got a knee brace.’ Then when I looked around the house, I found those Oz pants, which I have on in this picture. Those are the pants that go to the Oz cloak that I gave Conrad, that Conrad gave to somebody else. So the guy that’s in there, one of the production guys, says, ‘Hey, man. I know the guy that has this.’ I said, ‘Conrad.’ He goes, ‘No.’ He names this name, like Bill somebody. So I tweet Conrad. I said, ‘Wow, man, I gifted you my Oz gimmick and you fucking turn around and [give the cloak away].’ Conrad’s such a good fucking guy. Conrad, you could tell, he was actually like, ‘Oh fuck, I upset Nash.’ So he put, ‘I got in my collecting mode, and I’m embarrassed. I apologize.’ Really from the heart, and I knew it was from the heart. So I wait a whole day, and then finally a day later, I put, ‘Well then,’ in capital letters, ‘Fuck you,'" Nash said with a laugh.
Co-host Sean Oliver stated that he hoped Thompson knew Nash was kidding, and the latter stated that he never heard anything back. Nash expressed that he just wanted to know how much Thompson got for the gear, but he made it clear that the two of them were "fine." The legend shifted his focus back to filming with Foley and described how he wouldn't let the taping take place at his house, so they used an Airbnb.
“So they take me out. I won’t let anybody use my house. You’re not filming shit in my house. So they said, ‘Well, we’re get an air bnb.’ So they go out, I couldn’t have walked to the ocean in three ways from this house. I Zillow it, and it’s $1.1 million, is what the price of the house is. It’s in New Smyrna. It’s in] fucking Nowheresland. There’s not enough real estate in the back yard to put a pool table, let alone a pool. It is the most overpriced piece of shit I’ve ever seen in my life. There’s nothing over there," Nash said.
Nash went on to describe how the show turned out to be a "whole comedy thing" because he insulted the house the whole time. He made it clear that they were taping at an Airbnb, not his actual house, because he didn't want people to think that his career turned out that way. Nash also took issue with the way the home had carpeting and noted that only the 'Brady Bunch' house was allowed to have carpeting.
"I got in there, so me and Mick just basically did a whole comedy thing. I walked him out back and I said, ‘Hey, take a look at my [yard].’ The backyard is absolutely… I wouldn’t pay $400,000 for that house. We shot inside, but I don’t know how they’ll be able to use because I just basically tear into the place the whole time. I tell him right away, ‘Yeah, this isn’t my house, it’s an Airbnb.’ There’s no way anybody thinks that this is where I ended up my career at, that I had this bad of a career that I ended up at this builder-grade [house]. The two back bedrooms have carpeting, come on. Carpeting unless it was the Brady Bunch fucking house was a fucking no-no," he said.
The WWE Hall of Famer then described how he approached the whole taping with a playful mindset, as he immediately started joking around with Foley. Nash stated that the network was lucky he was there in the first place, given what they were paying him.
“He’s the host. The first thing out of my mouth is, ‘Do know if I was up for host or not?’ [laughs] He looks at me like, ‘You’re kidding me, right? This is how this is gonna be?’ I go, ‘Yeah, I’m fucking around the whole time. Because what you’re paying, you’re lucky I’m fucking here,'" Nash said.
It's currently unclear when Nash's episode of 'WWE Most Wanted Treasures' will air. A&E previously announced the show would return this winter.
