Kevin Nash had a bold answer for critics of the latest installment of Triple H versus The Undertaker, claiming no one cares about the younger performers.
It's hard to believe that in 2018, more than six years after their last in-ring encounter, Triple H and The Undertaker are about to headline another big WWE show together. This Saturday at WWE Super Show-Down in Australia, The Game and The Deadman will face off in the main event. The match has been labeled the "last time ever."
While the promo exchanges between them and Shawn Michaels during the build have been great, and the altercation involving Kane to close this week's Raw, many fans aren't happy about the match. Triple H is 49 and Taker is 53 which has led some to say that their time is done and younger, current Superstars should be in the main event and taking center stage on big shows.
Kevin Nash has responded to those who don't like that this match is happening and if you fall into that category, you probably won't like what he had to say. During an interview with Steven Muehlhausen, Nash said that "no one cares about the young guys." He didn't leave it at that, of course, and did elaborate on exactly what he means by that.
"I don’t know if I want to see Roman Reigns versus Undertaker again. What more of a rub can you give than that? He’s [been] given rubs before and they just aren’t getting over," the former WWE Champion went on to say. It's true. Reigns has already been given the Undertaker treatment, but many others that are more deserving have not. Plus those who don't like the Super Show-Down main event likely want to see two younger wrestlers compete, not a current star versus The Undertaker.
There will soon be a time where WWE runs out of legacy stars to call upon for returns. The Undertaker's career will soon come to an end, The Rock appears in WWE less and less, and even Triple H can't go on forever. There are legions of fans that love current stars like AJ Styles and Seth Rollins. It's time to give them the spotlight and let the older stars be a sideshow if they want to stick around.
