Kevin Nash has a way of finding himself in the right place at the right time. After failed gimmicks in WCW, he latched onto Shawn Michaels and cozied up to Vince McMahon at a time that the WWE was a little shy on top-end talent. Vince made Diesel (Nash) a star
by having him unsuspectingly pin Bob Backlund at a house show for the WWE Title. He went on to have one of the longest reigns as a WWE Champion in quite some time. Again, when the money came calling, Nash went running and this time back to WCW as part of a talent raid that almost crippled the WWE. Vince probably hated the fact that he put so much faith in a person who continually showed he'd jump ship when the option presented itself.
