WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash spoke to the Two Man Power Trip Of Wrestling Podcast for a recent interview. You can check out submitted highlights, courtesy of the Two Man Power Trip below, and the full podcast at this link.
Influences on the nWo style and catch phrases:
"When I met Scott, he was more of a country-western guy and I was born and raised in Detroit so I was always kind of a Motown guy and once West Coast rap got really hot and especially Death Row it was we began listening to Death Row a lot in the car and there was this old Mack 10 song and in this Mack 10 song they rob a McDonald's and one dude says to the other dude in the car that he'd been wanting to do that for two years and the other guys says that he'd been wanting to do that FOR LIFE, so that is where we got that. Most of our catch phrases and those things we did we got from West Coast rap. Immediately, I remember I put my headband on backwards like 2 Pac. Here is a thirty five year old white guy with his headband on backwards but it worked."
Great American Bash 96 and power bombing Eric Bischoff on Pay Per View:
"That is the first night that we became aggressive. Shortly after that I think we were in Charlotte (maybe the next Monday) where we brought out the aluminium baseball bats. That was (Kevin) Sullivan. Sullivan knew that two things sell in wrestling and that is sex and violence."
"The three of us (Hall, Bischoff, Nash) were all there at the beginning. He was WCW and we were the invaders and this was before the third man was unveiled so basically he was the foil and we were the invaders and he was representing WCW. He did such a good job and it was his idea and along the way it was tweaked here and there but conceptually he laid it out to me even before I decided to come on over."
How the nWo changed the perception of wrestling in the 90s:
"I always say that we showed Vince how to build the Saturn V and once we built it he kicked our astronauts out of the castle and said I've got it from here, pal.
