Nathan Jones Shares Some Of His Favorites Moments From His Time In WWE

Nathan has come out of hiding.

The 6'10 Australian big man Nathan Jones is remembered by wrestling fans for his time in WWE during the early 2000's. Jones had wrestled in his home-country of Australia and in Japan prior to coming to WWE. Jones worked dark matches for the sports-entertainment company upon signing in 2002 until he was put into a storyline with The Undertaker and that storyline was going to payoff by having Jones and Undertaker team up at WrestleMania XIX to face Big Show and Matt Bloom. An angle was shot where Nathan Jones was taken out backstage - thus the once tag team match was converted into a Handicap match. Nathan eventually came down to the ring to help "The Deadman" continue the WrestleMania undefeated streak and had his own moment during the match when he delivered a spinning heel kick to the head of Big Show.

Later that same year, Nathan Jones stepped away from WWE because of the "rockstar lifestyle" that did not fit him. At a recent comic-con event, Hannibal TV caught up with the big man and were able to ask him a multitude of questions and one of those questions had to do with Nathan's favorite moments from his brief run in WWE.

“I remember joining Survivor Series. It was a lot of fun, and… WrestleMania, remember that one? The big spinning kick to the head of Big Show." He recalled. "I thought I’d add that in because people paint the giant all the time you know? And I thought it would be nice to see someone jump around and [show that] us big guys can do it.”

 

 

While Nathan Jones has not wrestled since 2005, The Undertaker and Big Show are still competing and both of those men were involved in big matches at WWE's 'Crown Jewel' event in Saudi Arabia.
