Speaking to WWE Magazine, Kevin Nash explains why he has managed to withstand father time, which has allowed him to secure plum roles in the image-conscious WWE at the age of 52.
“I’ve been blessed with Indian heritage, and I haven’t aged much facially. And keep in mind the fact I’m talking to you in front of the gym. I go to the gym everyday. I eat a clean diet. Today, I weighed 282 pounds, and I haven’t weighed that since I was 22 years old,” says the six-time world champion.
“People who had seen me with gray hair thought I was so old. Then, when I dyed it they said, “Oh wow, he doesn’t look that old anymore.” But here’s what I don’t understand: We have a segment sponsored by Just for Men, and the fans chant it when I came out and they’re not doing something. I just don’t get it. Does anyone not see the correlation there? Wouldn’t it be more advantageous for them to put my beard and mustache on and say, “Hey, you’re up next,” and I do a five-minute cover-my-gray routine in front of the camera? But no, they leave it to the Madison Avenue guys.”
Nash will face Triple H tomorrow night at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs in a Sledgehammer Ladder Match.
