Kevin Nash Talks WWE Return; Wants To Manage Dolph Ziggler

WWE Hall of Famer Kevin Nash was recently a guest on Vince Russo’s podcast on Podcast One. The former WWE Champion discussed a variety of topics, one of them being if he would ever be interested in returning to WWE in a televised role, whether it be wrestling, managing, et cetera. Nash said that he would only return to WWE if he could either form a new nWo stable or manage Dolph Ziggler.

In regards to Ziggler, Nash thinks he has a ton of potential and is one of the best in ring performers in the business right now. Nash says that being Ziggler’s Diesel is all Ziggler needs to take that next step.

“People always say would you ever come back to wrestling and I say to myself I’d come back and be [Dolph] Ziggler’s Diesel because that’s all he needs. Number one, he’s not a face. Ziggler is a heel and I wouldn’t have to say a word because he can talk. I’ve already had mine. But for the bigger guys, he needs somebody to stomp them. He does the same thing Shawn [Michaels] did. He takes every bump in the world. He takes every beating from the guys and then usually they beat him. But to me, his in ring performance is as good as anybody’s in the business right now. He works so hard.

“I’d like to teach him the little things that Shawn learned. Yeah, he can fly back on every bump but every third one is kind of nice to take a punch and bounce off the ropes. I mean, the ropes are there for a reason.”
