Shawn Michaels posted the following on Twitter following Kevin Nash’s return to WWE during the SummerSlam PPV: “Wow the PPV sounded exciting!! @RealKevinNash. Is back!! Obviously I’m very happy for him. Looks like I’ll have to tune into RAW:-)”
As for why the announcers decided to bill Nash as “Kevin Nash” instead of what they referred to him at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view back in January, “Diesel”, is because Nash appears in the upcoming WWE’12 game as his real name. Nash is being brought back in part because he is apart of the game and WWE is looking to give the game a hard sell.
